A Kitzbühel classic. A wonderful route with some brutal climbs in the most beautiful of settings.
This tour starts along the Römerweg towards St. Johann, then continues towards Fieberbrunn. After the underpass look out for the left turn to the airport and join the cycle path. Some glorious short and sharp ascents (a few up to15 %) to Fieberbrunn. Ride a few kilometres along the Hochkönig-Bundesstraße (B164). At the junction for the Fieberbrunn cable cars turn right in the direction of Walchau | Dandlerau and continue as far as the Gasthof “Eiserne Hand”. Here turn left and follow the slight ascent to Hochfilzen-Zentrum (1,000 m above sea level). From here through the Warmingtal and along the side road to St. Ulrich, then follow the Pillersee-Landesstraße to Waidring. After about 8 km on the B178 towards St. Johann (the cycle path is very winding; it is not worth taking!) in Erpfendorf (Steinbacher insulation factory) turn right onto the state road towards Kössen. After about 1 km, and passing the bridge over the Großache, turn left onto the old state road to St. Johann. From here return to Kitzbühel through Weitau | Sperten, Oberndorf and then Rerobichl to Reith and along the Schwarzseestraße. (see Kitzbühel Circuit No. 1).
