This lap is less than seven kilometers long and yet has something in it. Because at the short distance you master more than 500 vertical meters - and on some challenging trails. A great advantage is that it only goes uphill once and only once downhill, so you can divide your forces very well. At the summit of the Geißberg, a very special reward awaits you: an absolutely fantastic view!
