Europe's highest motorcycle museum, the TOP Mountain Motorcycle Museum, is located in Hochgurgl at the toll station of the Timmelsjoch High Alpine Road at an altitude of approx. 2,200 meters. Directly on the most attractive route over the Alps for motorcyclists, you will find more than 450 exhibits of motorcycle history in a building with breathtaking architectural language. 

With the Motor Experience, the museum also offers a multimedia world of experience with technology simulations, 4D cinema, motor wall and engine sounds as well as numerous interactive stations.

Special exhibitions

From time to time, special exhibitions are set up in the museum that revolve around other high-horsepower vehicles. These include, for example, the show of expedition vehicles. 

Restaurant

At Top Mountain Crosspoint, in addition to the motorcycle museum, there is also a cozy restaurant with lots of wood and large window fronts with a view of the Ötztal Alps. After your visit to the museum, you can indulge yourself with authentic dishes from Austria and Italy.

Historical Information

The motorcycle museum was rebuilt and expanded after the fire in 2021.

Top Mountain Motorcycle Museum was created by the twin brothers Alban and Attila Scheiber from Hochgurgl, and opened its doors in April 2016. Both brothers are enthusiastic motorcyclists, and have managed to build up one of the most extensive and valuable collections of historic motorcycles in Austria. They get their passion for motors from their father, Alban Scheiber senior, a former professional race driver and famous Tyrolean tourism pioneer.

In January 2021, a major fire broke out in the motorcycle museum, in which the museum was completely burned out. Already in November of the same year, however, the new, enlarged museum could be reopened. 

How to get there

The museum is located right at an Alpine pass that is very popular with motorcyclists, the Timmelsjoch Hochalpenstraße. Coming from Sölden, follow B186 via Obergurgl and Hochgurgl until you reach Top Mountain Crosspoint.

Furthermore, the museum is located at the top station of the ski resort Obergurgl Hochgurgl's Kirchenkarbahn lift.
