January 16, 2020
On the fifth stage you leave the highlands of the Grenzkamm and make your way back to Marktredwitz. Once again, a varied up and down awaits you, typical Upper Palatinate Forest, but a bit "tamer" than yesterday's stage. Perfect for enjoying the beautiful area again and slowly saying goodbye.Today, everything the region has to offer is once again there: fine trails, a mix of forest and meadows, wildly romantic brooks and cozy towns such as Wernersreuth or Mitterteich. The highway, which you still know from the first stage, heralds the last section of the tour. But before you reach the starting point in Marktredwitz, a nice long climb is waiting for you: At the Großer Teichelberg, it's up again to almost 700 meters. Above you can take a look at the site of a former basalt quarry, which gives you interesting insights into the geology of the mountain.Arrived in Marktredwitz you can look back on five really great bike tours in a unique area. Not always easy, but always simply beautiful! If you still have time, a trip through the beautiful old town of Marktredwitz is worthwhile. You will definitely find a cozy café or restaurant here to strengthen yourself. If you go home by train, you can bridge the time until departure in this way, because it is only a few meters from the old town to the train station.
