Tour description:

We cycle comfortably towards Ruhpolding. Past Seegatterl it goes along lakes Weitsee and Mittersee. If the wind plays in our cards, the first kilometers to Ruhpolding with a view of the Rauschberg are a pleasure. Before Ruhpolding we pass the Chiemgau Arena and the Holzknecht Museum, both of which are worth a visit.

Through Ruhpolding we follow the road towards Eisenärzt. A cycle path leads between Eisenärzt and Ruhpolding. Directly after Eisenärzt we turn left towards Maria Eck. After a railroad crossing, there is a short steep uphill section before we arrive at the top of a hill.

At the next junction we have the choice whether we go downhill directly to Siegsdorf or up the almost 2 kilometers to Maria Eck. A detour that is worthwhile. Maria Eck is a very nice place to contemplate or just enjoy the view of lake Chiemsee.

We ride down to Siegsdorf. At the crossroads we turn left towards Bergen. A short descent offers relaxation for the beautiful bike path at the foot of the Hochfelln to Staudach. A wonderful path for racing cyclists leads without interruption to Staudach.

Here we follow the first sign to Marquartstein. Past the soccer field, it goes through the historic village of Marquartstein towards Unterwössen. Before we get back to Reit im Winkl, we still have to conquer the Daxenberg and the Maserer pass. The descent from the Maserer pass to Reit im Winkl is then again a pleasure and a wonderful opportunity to end the tour.

Tips for this tour

If you feel like cooling down before you reach your final destination, turn left in Unterwössen before the Daxenberg (before the sawmill) to lake Wössner See. Here you can strengthen yourself again for the last few kilometers.
