Bike tours around the Klosterhof
The Untersberg round: a border-crossing tour
Starting at the Klosterhof, ride uphill to Hallthurn. As soon as you reach the plateau, continue on the state road towards Berchtesgaden via Winkel and Bischofswiesen. You will already be able to see the Watzmann and Hagen mountains that surround Lake Königssee. Follow the German High Alpine Road to Berchtesgaden. From there the path runs steadily slightly downhill along the beautiful Königsseer Ache river, through Marktschellenberg to St Leonhard. Here you will find yourself in Austria! Continue through Glanegg towards Fürstenbrunn. Then the steepest section of the route begins at the end of Fürstenbrunn village as you ride over the so-called “Wachterl” with its incline of up to 14%. After several ascents and some descents you will reach Großgmain. Continue through Bayerisch Gmain until you reach the Klosterhof.

Cycle from Bayerisch Gmain towards Bad Reichenhall and from there on to the climatic resort town of Piding. The “Rund um den Högl” (“Around the Högl”) trail runs steadily uphill to the Steiner Alm alp. The path along the Frillensee lake leads to the Adlgaß restaurant. Here you can fill up on tasty food for the ascent to the Inzeller Höhe and the Fürmannalm alp. From here, you continue down to Anger and through Piding and Bad Reichenhall back to the Klosterhof.
