A beautiful and varied circular tour around the Wilder Kaiser. Wonderful views of the impressive rock formations.
The starting point is the town centre of Kitzbühel. Proceed along the Schwarzseestraße, go on past the Schwarzsee lake on the Reither Landesstraße until you come to the Stanglwirt. Here turn onto the bike path and on past Going and Ellmau. After Ellmau turn onto the Eiberg-Bundesstraße (B173). There follows a quick descent from Eiberg. At the second roundabout turn off onto the Inn bike path, follow the bike path to the Austrian-German border. Here leave the bike path and take the secondary road passing Niederndorf. About 500 m after Sebi leave the secondary road to your left, proceed onto Pöttingsteigung and on through the wonderful landscape to the Walchsee lake. Shortly after the Walchsee turn right onto a side road which leads to the hamlet of “Bichlach” and then to Schwendt.
