In April the Hochgurgl motorcycle museum will open in Austria. Situated at the southernmost tip of the Ötztal Valley, it is the highest altitude museum in Europe.

The brothers Alban and Attila Scheiber collected over 180 historical pieces, which narrate over 100 years of motorcycle history. In the museum you can find mechanical jewels from the year 1905 on, including:
Norton, Moto Guzzi, MV Agusta, NSU, DKW, Zündapp, Ducati, Triumph, Matchless, AJS, Brough Superior, Vincent, BMW, Honda, Indian, Harley Davidson.
Besides motorcycles, in the museum you can also see some automobiles, which have a particularly strong connection with the racing world: Ferrari California Spider, Porsche 959 and Lotus 23 B.

The museum is situated inside the new Top Mountain Crosspoint building, designed by the young Tyrolean architect Michael Brötz. The building encompasses the valley station of the new gondola lift Kirchenkar, an elegant panoramic restaurant, the Timmelsjoch high mountain pass street toll booth and the aforementioned new museum.

This is the ideal destination for motorcyclists, as the Timmelsjoch high mountain pass is considered to be one of the most famous alpine roads to ride your motorbike on, thanks to the breat-taking panoramas offered by the highest cross-border road in the whole of Austria. The Top Mountain Crosspoint building overlooks this border passage between Tyrol and the Italian region of Alto Adige.
