This leisurely round leads around the Hohen Kranzberg and past Lautersee and Ferchensee. On the way you get all the nature experiences that you can experience in the Karwendel Alps. On the trip to Krün, the unique humpback meadows are a very special highlight. And the view of the world-famous Elmau Castle is simply magnificent ...The starting point for this relatively easy (and flat) mountain bike tour is the parking lot on Krottenkopfstraße in Krün. From here you follow the course of the Isar for a while, drive past the Maria Rast chapel and soon reach the unique humpback meadows. With countless bumps in the road, the landscape here looks almost unreal and a little playful. These small humps are a relic of the last Ice Age and are highly worth protecting. That is why the traditional scythe is still used here, fertilizers are dispensed with and herds of sheep and goats graze the humpbacks.
The pleasure tour lives up to its name: You drive through the finest spots in the Karwendel Alps. On the way you can experience the Isar flicker live, pass the idyllic Barmsee, discover the unreal humpback meadow landscape and the brightly painted rows of houses in Mittenwald. On the tour there is an endless panorama and numerous rest stops.The tour begins at Mittenwald train station and takes you over the beautiful Isar bridge directly to the bank of the river, which you follow over a quiet bike path to the barracks and on to the Isar reservoir, where swans and other water birds cavort. After the beautiful trail above the lake, you switch back to the bank and you will soon reach the cozy village of Krün. If you are really hungry, the Hotel Barmsee is recommended, a few kilometers from Krün. If the weather cooperates, a detour to the lake with a cooling bathing insert is worthwhile.
