Recently, the official ceremony for Hochgurgl’s next notable project took place in the presence of motorbike legend Giacomo Agostini. The Top Mountain Crosspoint will be constructed until 2015 in the foothills of the Timmelsjoch High Alpine Pass Road which leads from North Tirol to Italy’s South Tirol. At 2175 meters above sea level, this high mountain road draws thousands of excursionists every spring/summer who come to drive, motorbike or cycle alongside panoramic views.
Over 15 million Euros has been invested in the project that will comprise a modern multifunctional building with a motorbike museum, a base station for the new Kirchenar gondola, a road toll station and a top-notch restaurant totalling a surface area of 6060 m².
The Motorbike Museum
This will rank as Europe’s highest motorbike museum and is set to open in spring 2016. The official star guest of the unveiling ceremony was Italy’s famous fifteen time Motorbike World Champion, Giacomo Agostini. He congratulated on the project which is dedicated to all biking aficionados. The museum will be open year-round making it a great place to visit in all seasons.
Kirchenkarbahn Mountain Gondola
The 10 person gondola constructed by the Doppelmayr Company will offer access to the Kirchenkar ski slopes and some of the most loved terrain in the area. The lift is set to open for the 2015/16 season as is the mountain top restaurant.
