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.

The Motorcycle Museum - Top Mountain Crosspoint was largely destroyed by a fire on January 18, 2021, including all exhibits.

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 Ötztal 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 a.s.l., 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. Its Godfather is Giacomo "Ago" Agostini, most successful motorcyclist ever.

In the Top Mountain X-Cross Point also a restaurant can be found, which offers Austrian and Italian delicacies and a fantastic panoramic view. Furthermore the building houses the toll station of the Timmelsjoch road and the valley station of the new 10-seater cable car. Together with the Motorcycle Museum the building offers four functions which are symbolised by the X in the name.
