Worlds End

Travel - Alps

Alps are very fascinating. I have been to all German Mountains but the Alps are the best. The hight rock walls are impressive over and over again

And then there is the driving pleasure. If you have done Stelvio once then you know what I am talking about.

Austria - Plansee LakePlansee Lake. We have been to Nauders for a ADAC alps tour and passed Plansee by chance. I could not resist the picture postcard view.

Austria - RaftingYou should try a rafting trip on a creek or river in the mountains. I did this in Pfunds on the river Inn.

Italy - Passo del Stelvio - eastern ramp Passo del Stelvio - the top pass - literally. There are few points in the Alps where you can climb higher with your bike. 2757 meters (9045 ft). And if the weather is better than shown here one can go up on a gravel road to the Ortler cabin more than 3000 meters (9840 ft) above sea level

Italy - Passo del Stelvio - western ramp Endless switch backs bring you down to Bormio, a little nice Italian city

Italien - Gavia PassGavia pass has beautiful views and was very demandig to ride. A significant part of the track was gravel road in 1996. In 1998 the whole pass had been paved properly.
