Turn-by-turn directions

Heading south, the route goes via Fürnitz to the Wurzen Pass (1,073 m) and Slovenia. Go through Kranjska Gora to Jesenice and on to Lipce. In the World Biathlon Championship village of Pokljuka, turn off left onto a gravel road to Bohinjska Bistrica and from there head for Škofja Loka as far as Zelezniki. Bikers can now look forward to an extremely scenic route via Kropa to Kranj. At the Seeberg Sattel 1,218 m) in the Karawanken Range, you cross back over the border to Carinthia. The pass road itself is asphalted and in very good condition. Purely on-road riders will be in their element on the Seeberg Sattel. Stop off in Ebriach, west of Bad Eisenkappel, at Gasthof Zum Florian and visit the motorcycle museum there run by Edi Böhm-Besim. Admission is free. You can admire about two dozen exhibits from the first half of the last century, nicely arranged and well looked after. Afterwards, carry on westwards, but before going up to the Schaida Sattel it’s worth taking a short detour into the Trögener Klamm Gorge. The ride through the idyllic ravine is quite an experience and the stop for refreshments at Gasthaus Pristounik at the top is unforgettable. Go back through the ravine via Zell-Pfarre and Ferlach to Feistritz/Rosental, continue further along the Rosental Valley as far as Rosegg, and with another detour to the well-known summer hot spot of Velden and back to the starting point.
