A long and demanding mountain stage with two passes and rapid descents. Awesome panorama with glorious views of the glacier.
From Kitzbühel town centre head along the Schwarzseestraße. As per tour number 7, head west on the Brixental bike path as far as Wörgl. Proceed through the centre of Wörgl then follow the Inn bike path past the Reintaler lakes and on into the Zillertal (Zillertal bike path). Proceed along side-roads with light traffic until you reach the access point to the Gerlos pass (1,620 m, gradients of up to 10 %) in Zell am Ziller. Reaching the top, follow the plateau (Almdorf Königsleiten) that leads to a rapid descent to the Krimml waterfalls. From Krill, either take the Pinzgau bike path or the fast-paced secondary road with little traffic towards Mittersill. At Hollersbach be sure to turn onto the bike path and go through the hamlet of Rettenbach onto the old Pass- Thurn-Straße. Here continue along an unpaved stretch (unproblematic) then turn onto the Pass-Thurn federal road (B 161). Enjoy the pleasant consistent ascent (mostly well under 10 %) to the top of the pass (1,274 m) and the swift descent (long straights!) to Jochberg. Follow the federal road (Bundesstraße) to Kitzbühel.
