This stage is a real challenge, finishing with a climb over the Kitzbüheler Horn and down to Kitzbühel’s town centre
From the start at the roundabout, first you cycle towards the main square and continue along the road to the river, going past the Le Pirat outdoor center. Shortly thereafter, you cross over the river and main road. Then there’s a short ascent up to the road to Kitzbühel, which you stay on until junction "248 Klausenberg-Eggenalm". Next is an ascent to around 1000m above sea level. Cycling in a southerly direction along the side of the valley you will come to a fork in the road with signs for “249 Straubingerhaus-Eggenalm”. Here you turn right and the road descends for 5 kilometers towards Erpfendorf. Joining cycle path no. 18, you now cycle along the river, past Erpfendorf and past Kirchdorf, until you reach the footbridge across the river. There you turn left following the green bike trail signs for St. Johann in Tirol and then for Fieberbrunn. In the hamlet of Mühlbach, before you get as far as Fieberbrunn, you leave the cycle path and cycle down to the road at the bottom of the valley. After going along the road for about 500m you take the turn to the Kitzbüheler Horn (254). Now the ascent to the Hornköpflhütte begins (approx. 3 hours). After reaching the restaurant, the gravel road continues through the ski area for a further 2.5 kilometers until you reach the tarmac Panoramastrasse road that will take you down the Kitzbüheler Horn. Before the road reaches the bottom of the valley, you turn left just after going across a small bridge and continue along that road to the center of Kitzbühel.
