This 40-kilometer stage features challenging 1000 meters of altitude gain. For a less effortless tour you can also take the mountain gondola. Bikers are rewarded with a wonderful panoramic backdrop along the trail of intermediate difficulty: mighty Zugspitze Peak towers high above the entrance to the scenic Karwendel Nature Park. The first stage – a strenuous climb – travels through wildly romantic Gaistal Valley, followed by a really speedy downhill track to Leutasch. Leaving behind Weidach you reach another steep ascent comprising some 200 meters of altitude gain, before you pedal on a more leisurely route along Fludertal Valley until you get to Scharnitz, the end of this day stage. Right at the beginning of this tour, bikers can also take a ride with the panoramic Ehrwalder Almbahn mountain gondola, avoiding the steep ascent on the asphalt road featuring 400 meters of altitude gain.
