The tour to the Kehlsteinhaus high above Berchtesgaden impresses with a magnificent 360-degree panorama. At the end, there is also a moody single trail that puts our riding skills to the test.

While we cycle along in a comparatively relaxed manner until we reach the Scharitzkehlalm, our leg strength is then challenged all the more. The old military road winds steeply up towards the Kehlstein. From the car park at the Kehlstein lift, we can set off on foot to the Kehlsteinhaus, accompanied by veritable crowds of tourists.However, the outstanding view of the Königssee with the Watzmann towering behind it, the Hochkalter and the Hoher Göll is well worth the short climb. Today's mountain inn and former Nazi headquarters is enthroned on a rocky outcrop like an eagle's nest. This earned it the nickname "Eagle's Nest". Finally, we continue by bike to the Rossfeld, where we are rewarded with another fantastic panorama after the steep and sweaty ascent. Finally, we return to the valley via an exciting trail that promises great downhill fun, especially for experienced riders.
