Tour description:

Starting point: Tourist Info It's a leisurely descent towards Kössen. We drive down the curves without braking too much and so we roll quickly through Kössen in the direction of Walchsee. Already here the view of the surrounding mountains is beautiful and gives a foretaste of the view during this bike tour. Shortly after the exit sign for Kössen, we turn right in the direction of three farmhouses. So we avoid driving on the main road to Walchsee. Instead, a wonderful path with a view of the mountains leads towards Walchsee. We drive through the village to Durchholzen and then drive a few kilometers downhill. At the junction towards Sachrang we turn right. Some serpentines meander comfortably upwards. It is always worth looking back towards Kufstein and the beautiful mountain panorama. From Sachrang there is always a slightly downhill cycle path to Aschau. There is a steep descent into town that almost flies past the castle and beautiful historic district, so take the time to look up at the castle. At the roundabout, we head towards Bernau and Prien am Chiemsee. From Bernau we start on the bike path to Grassau, Marquartstein and Unterwössen. After Unterwössen it goes uphill to Oberwössen before you climb the Masererpass. Alternative: The bypass to Kössen via Schleching (turn off after Marquartstein) is not quite as steep. But the last kilometers to Reit im Winkl roll out comfortably. Conclusion: Wonderful tour on well-prepared cycle paths and with scenic and cultural highlights.
