The Finsterberg circuit: a varied tour in a scenically impressive setting

Your bike tour begins at the Schattberg X-Press, from where you ride comfortably through the picturesque village center in a northerly direction. The rest of the route takes you straight up along the Spielbergbach stream to just below the Spielberghaus. As soon as you have passed the Spielberghaus, you ride uphill on some long serpentines through the dense forest. Feel the energy in your legs as, after crossing the ski slope, you gradually approach the highest point at just under 1,700 meters.
