Description

Discover the magic of the mountains.
1955. Today, the date conjures up a sweet taste of nostalgia, an easy-going era. Things have changed, but there’s one thing that has remained unchanged over the years – and that is the exhilarating feeling of freedom that you experience as you drive over the Timmelsjoch. Today, the tranquil route connecting northern and southern Europe invites us to take a break from our hectic speed of life, to shift down a gear or two and rediscover the pleasure of a slower pace away from the busy main traffic routes. The “secret gap” in the Alps gently yet magnificently opens up the magic of the mountains to those who travel through it. To some, it reveals the stunning beauty of nature; it allows them to experience the unique closeness to the glacier and the power of the Alpine wind, and it offers a glimpse into the harsh reality of Alpine farming. It lures others, quite simply, to abandon themselves to the feeling of the open road as they negotiate the breathtaking bends. It’s nonetheless impossible not to stop at and admire the stunning views that repeatedly open up along the way. A journey over the Timmelsjoch is, at the same time, a journey through the vegetation zones with a spectrum that reaches from lush mountain meadows, flowering Alpine roses and weather-beaten pine trees to high barren Alpine landscapes with snow fields even in the height of summer. Sometimes sheep or goats or even ibexes cross your path. As you continue southwards, the climate suddenly changes, taking on Mediterranean characteristics and the vines unfold their leaves.

Attention: free travel with the Ötztal Inside Summer Card only with buses of the ÖVG and Postbus according to the public timetable, available in all information about the Ötztal.
