Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)
The only road crossing over the Mitterberg at the level of the Kalterer See, past the ruins of the Laimburg and the Leuchtenburg. The Mitterberg consists essentially of volcanic rock, the Bozen quartz porphyry. On its eastern flank it is quite steep, the road leads over three hairpin bends with up to 14% to the saddle. The road has just been redone on the east side, so it has an excellent surface on this side. Once at the top, there is a much narrower bumpy stretch, but after a few hundred meters it will be fine again. Almost no traffic.

For those who want to take the two short, crisp climbs with them instead of just strolling, I recommend my "Leuchtenburg" aft: from Sigmundskron to the bridge near Auer around Mitterberg - and take the two peaks on the Kreiter saddle with you. Because it is more violent from the lowlands, I also recommend tackling the climb from Lake Kaltern. By the way: For the locals, the saddle is funnily called "coyote pass". - Also recommended as a starting point for a nice short hike to the Leuchtenburg and possibly further to the Roßzähne, a split gesture information.
