Tour description:

Highlight of the tour: Sonntagshorn summit (1961m), breathtaking view of the Chiemgau

Starting from the Winklmoos-Alm, the tour goes via Moarlack towards Heutal valley. Follow the main road to the right for about 1.5 km, then the path turns left to the Hochalm.

The Hochalm is the highest point of the tour with a wonderful view and refreshment stops. Now park your bike and conquer the last 400 m on foot to the summit of the Sonntagshorn.

Back at the Hochalm, we ride back to the end of the Heutal valley and then follow the forest road in the direction of Winklmoos-Alm.

Tips for this tour

If you still have the desire and time, the Staubfall waterfall is not far from the Heutal valley and it is worth the detour.
