    The name is program, highest elevation in the wide circle, therefore great view particularly over the Bodensee to the alps. From different directions roads go up, duty for every racing cyclist is the Ur-Stoppomat. It was put into operation in 2006 by RSV Seerose Friedrichshafen. Start is at Urnau at 499 meters altitude, the time measuring track goes over a distance of 8.2 km to 830m.

    With speed from Deggenhausertal up to the highest. With time clock and timekeeping. Each tour is the competition against his own best.

    There at the intersection there is a Stoppomat. The other stands at the edge of the forest near Urnau. Especially interesting for racing cyclists.

    I am drawn to the highest again and again.
    especially in the back the log house with inexpensive
    Specialties like Dünnele and Mekatzer are recommended.

    In windy conditions, a windbreaker in your jersey pocket won't do any harm.

    Incidentally, the Rhine-Danube watershed also runs over the highest. All the streams that run from the mountain to the north reach the Danube via the Andelsbach and Ablach and finally the Black Sea.
    The creeks flowing to the south and west reach Lake Constance, then the Rhine and finally the North Sea via the Deggenhauser Aach and the Linzer Aach as well as the Rotach, which flows south.

    Either way, the raindrops have a long journey ahead of them.

    not quite the highest point, you could go a little higher, but not exactly good with RR shoes :-)

    Since the original Stoppomat was here until 2019, you have to have been upstairs.

    When it's foggy down by the lake, the sun often shines on the highest!
    And the view is terrific!
