Rudi's Motorradtouren

Montan - Würzjoch

Route description/characteristics

Three passes with more than 2000 m altitude (Würzjoch, Grödnerjoch and Sellajoch), plus - up to and including Würzjoch - mainly narrow roads. Wonderful curve combinations and fantastic landscape impressions - motorcyclists what more do you want?

From Montan, the route first descends to Auer and north towards Bolzano. After Leifers turn right towards La Costa. The narrow road leads steeply uphill and offers beautiful views down into the valley. Then the road via Kohlern leads just as steeply down to Bozen. Wonderful views in Eissacktal accompany us.
In Bozen follow the signs to Ritten! The road uphill is simply a pleasure, wide and in wonderful curve combinations it goes to Klobenstein. From there on to Lengstein. Here the road becomes narrow again and leads above the Eissack valley to Barbian and from there (left) to Villanders. Then down into the valley to the "Brennerroute". There turn right and then immediately left into the centre of Klausen. Under the "Brennerroute" the narrow road leads through a gorge up to Latzfons.
Then down again to the "Brennerroute" and there turn left for about 2 km and then right into the Villnösstal. This is followed by the tour to St. Peter. There it goes left up to the Würzjoch. Shortly before the top of the pass, the Edelweiss Hut offers the opportunity to take a break. The path then continues over the pass summit of the Würzjoch and then via Antermoia to St. Martin in Thurn. Shortly after that you reach the Badertal valley, which you follow to the right. Via La Villa/Stern you continue to Corvara. From here (turn right) up to the Gardena Pass and then on to the Sella Pass.
Via Canazei and Pozza di Fassa you finally reach the Karer Pass and past Lake Karer to Birchabruck.
From here it is only a short way back to Montan via Deutschnofen and Aldein.
Total distance about 260 km
