Tourenbeschreibung

After staying overnight at Achensee lake, you will circle around the Karwendel to the north, first on the new bike path, the Via Bavarica Tyrolensis, and then on the historic Soiernweg, the feeder road for the Soiern lodges built by King Ludwig II. You will also encounter magical panoramic views of the Rofan range and the Soiern mountains, a lovely ride along Achensee lake, swimming opportunities in Sylvensteinsee lake and the ascent to the Fischbachalm alpine hut, which is demanding and technical. At 70 kilometers, the stage is very long and although two thirds of the route appear nearly flat, there is definitely plenty of altitude gain along the way. If you leave from Achensee lake early and give yourself enough time, however, you are sure to enjoy this tour to the fullest.
