Route description

From the Ski stadium SW along the cycle track towards Grainau to Christlhütte, in an idyllic ride to the Eibsee (973m), after riding around it, a climb to the  Eibseeblick (you'll need to push the bike along a path for the last few metres!) and a descent via the Hochthörlehütte (1459m) to Ehrwald (994m). Then follow a gravel road to the Ehrwalder Alm (1502m; also possible by cable car), from here another short stretch up the mountainside, before the start of a gently sloping downhill stretch through the Gaistal. For almost 15km, one cycles between Wettersteinkamm and Mieminger Kette to Leutasch on a tarmac road as far as shortly before Mittenwald, then fork left and cross the Ferchensee to Schloss Elmau, then an approx. 300m climb to the Wamberg and down into the starting point of the tour at the Ski stadium.

Eibsee-Hotel (973m), Hochthörlehütte (1459m), Gasthof Alpenglühn, inns in Ehrwald, Ehrwalder Alm (1502m), Leutasch (1200m), Ferchensee (1080m), Elmau (1000m) and Wamberg
