Motorcycle Museum - Top Mountain Crosspoint

Europe’s highest motorbike museum at the Top Mountain X-Cross Point is located at the foot of the Timmelsjoch road.

In Hochgurgl, at the foot of the Timmelsjoch mountain pass road (Passo del Rombo in Italian), which connects South Tyrol (Italy) with North Tyrol, the Oetztal prestigious object “Top Mountain X-Cross Point” is located. The building with its wooden façade fits harmoniously into the alpine landscape. It houses a unique collection of classical motorbikes and antique cars. The museum, Europe’s highest motorbike museum at 2,175 m asl, was built in 2015/2016 and was inaugurated in April 2016.

About 230 classical motorcycles from approx. 100 manufacturers are shown on an area of 3,000 sqm. Among them are bikes of the brands Motoguzzi, MV Augusta, Ducati, BMW, DKW, Zündapp, Triumph, Sunbeam, Matchless, Brough Superior, Vincent, Honda, Henderson, Indian and of course Harley Davidson. Also some antique cars like a Ferrari Californian Spider, a Porsche 959 and a Lotus 23 B can be admired. Alban Scheiber, manager of the Hochgurgl ski lift company, and his brother Attila have made their dream come true with constructing this museum in a fantastic location. Not only well-suited in bad weather the museum is perfectly situated at the Timmelsjoch mountain pass road, which is very popular among motorcyclists. Godfather of the museum is Giacomo “Ago” Agostini, most successful motorcyclist ever.

In the Top Mountain X-Cross Point also a restaurant can be found, which offers various delicacies of Austria and Italy. The gorgeous panoramic view from the terrace is included!
