Top Mountain Motorcycle Museum

 On a tour of the Alps in Europe we stopped by the Top Mountain Motorcycle Museum at the beginning of the Timmelsjoch Pass in Austria. Completely destroyed by fire in 2021, It has been rebuilt and is absolutely gorgeous! Plus the roads to and from there are amazing!

The impressive Top Mountain Crosspoint with Europe’s highest Motorcycle Museum (above 7135 feet) is located in the midst of the stunning Ötztal mountain scenery, right at the bottom of Timmelsjoch High Alpine Road – the most attractive route to cross the Alps.

In the Motorcycle Museum, more than 500 classic motorbikes from 120 international manufacturers as well as hand picked curiosities leave no one unimpressed and fulfil great expectations on a surface area of more than 4.500 sq.m. Selected samples from all eras, starting with the year 1894, will take you through the fascinating history of the motorcycle. The highlights and milestones of each defining brand are displayed.
