Tour description:

We start in the direction of Kössen and turn left before the town sign to Erpfendorf / Waidring. After a short ascent, a wide road leads into a small valley basin. Shortly before Erpfendorf we turn right into a side street ideal for cyclists. Here the Tiroler Ache doesn't leave us alone and follows us flat on our way there.

We pass Kirchdorf and keep on Litzfeldner Straße in the direction of St. Johann. Shortly before St. Johann we turn back towards Schwendt / Kössen. We are rewarded with a breathtaking panorama and continue cycling comfortably. Immediately after the junction, the Huberhöhe climbs steeply for 2 km before the road flattens out again.

We are now rolling on winding roads through green forests past the Griesenau to Schwendt. From here it goes downhill to Kössen, at the roundabout in the direction of Reit im Winkl. One last time we need our reserves of strength for the ascent just before Reit im Winkl. It goes comfortably back to the starting point.

Tip: A visit to the show dairy "Wilder Käser" (between Kirchdorf in Tirol and Schwendt) is worthwhile.
