December 22, 2017
High up on the Auersberg starts this mountain bike tour in the midst of the varied and impressive nature of the German / Czech border area. In the nature reserve Kleiner Kranichsee you will be impressed for the first time - such a high moor has a very special atmosphere and this is one of the most important of the whole result. Shortly after you reach Johanngeorgenstadt, where you pass the border to the Czech Republic and cycle through Potůčky (to Breitenbach in German).Before that, you have the opportunity to make a stop at the Glöckl mine, which is pretty cool. Because here you do not only look, here you slip yourself into the role of the miner and experience up close, what it meant to reduce the coveted ores.Slowly but surely the long ascent to the Plattenberg begins along the Schwarzwasser. However, the valley through which you drive is so beautiful that you almost forget that it has not been downhill for a while. Once at the top, you should definitely visit the "Wolfs or Eispinge", also a relic of mining, today a very impressive natural monument.An increase is still in front of you. The driveway to the 1,028-meter-high Plešivec (Plessberg) is only moderately, but is getting steeper towards the end. Once at the top, a lookout tower and especially a beautifully located mountain hotel, which is completely geared towards bikers, are waiting for you.
