Mountain Biking Highlight (Segment)
Mountain Biking Highlight
Martin Donat planned a mountain bike ride.
January 16, 2020
After a quiet night at the campsite, at the beginning of the second stage you follow the course of the Waldnaab, which meanders through its beautiful valley. Only the highway, which is always in sight at first, disturbs the idyll a little. But behind Neustadt you turn your back on it and can look forward to a wonderfully quiet ride through the green. From now on it goes up and down, again and again you have a great view of the valley.Today's highlight is the Vierlingsturm at 633 meters. The view here is not so impressive because everything is overgrown, but here is a nice place for a break. Because at the foot of the tower, the Strobelhütte invites you to stop. At weekends and on Wednesdays you can fortify yourself with rustic home cooking.Then a few flowing trails, but also some crisp climbs await you. That's how it is in the Upper Palatinate Forest - if you want it flat, you'd better go to Holland. Magnificent forest passages and again and again these unique rocks create an atmosphere that is worth every effort. In addition, you can already look forward to today's stage goal: In Vohenstrauß, several Zoigl parlors are waiting to beautify your "end of the day". In and around Vohenstrauß you will find all kinds of inns and holiday apartments to stay overnight.If you cannot decide where you want to stop, here is a little decision-making aid or a small excursion into the Upper Palatinate beer culture. There is a traditional identifier for serving "Zoigls" there. It is the six-pointed Zoiglstern, which consists of two equilateral triangles, which were once intended to symbolize the elements involved in brewing fire, water and air as well as the ingredients water, malt and hops. Where this star is, you can be sure to get a hearty snack and a delicious beer.
