A wonderfully scenic tour to South Bavaria. Many small side-roads. Options to extend and combine.
From Kitzbühel town centre head west to the Schwarzsee lake, then north along the Reither Landesstraße to Gasthof Reinache and Rerobichl. In Oberndorf turn onto the side road towards Sperten | Weitau and St. Johann, after a short stretch branch off left onto the B 178 for the ascent to Gasteig towards Kössen. The route leads onto Schwendt and after a short descent reaches Kössen. Follow the B176 over the border to the Tiroler Ache leading to Schleching. In Raiten turn left onto the wonderful Deutsche Alpenstraße. After passing through Unterwössen and Oberwössen tackle the Maserer Pass (793 m). After a short descent you reach Reit im Winkl. Here a winding descent begins following the river “Lofer” towards Kössen. Shortly before Kössen you meet the Erpfendorfer Landesstraße L39 leading to St. Johann. Shortly before Erpfendorf turn onto the old Landesstraße towards St. Johann. Proceed through the centre of St. Johann and along the Römerweg to Kitzbühel. (see Kitzbühel Circuit)
