Route: Parking Salzbach (P5) – Almenparadies Gaistal – turnoff Gaistalalm – (Gaistalalm) – Tillfussalm
Because two alpine pastures are even more beautiful than one alone, this leisurely bike tour combines two of the most beautiful refreshment stops in the extensive Gaistal on just under five kilometers.
From the starting point at the Salzbach parking lot (P5), you pass the entrance to the Almenparadies Gaistal and take the wide gravel road uphill on the right and follow the signs (Seebensee Nr. 551). Once you have overcome the first steep ascent, follow the signs to the Gaistalalm across wide mountain meadows and through cool wooded areas along the Leutascher Ache. Once you reached the junction pedal the last stretch on the bike trail nr. 551 to the Tillfussalm, where literary legend Ludwig Ganghofer devoted himself to various domestic delights back in the day - his hunting lodge Hubertus can still be admired above the alpine hut.
The last part to the mountain pasture is a pushing stretch (please be considerate of alpine animals!), afterwards the cozy sun terrace rewards you with hearty Brettljausn and home made alpine cheese, delicious blueberry pie (and many more!) and all kinds of seasonal delicacies. When eventually rolling back downhill to the starting point at the Salzbach, you’ll find a small natural Kneipp facility in the forest nearby – for rest, refreshment and regeneration.
Attention pasture cattle, please keep distance and cross the pasture area calmly and quickly.
