This tour leads you from the bottom station of the cable car in Hopfgarten to the sunny side of the Hohe Salve. By the way, to shorten the climb, just take the cable car to the middle station (Sektion I) and save approx. 1 hour. At the middle station you go via Gasthof Tenn uphill to the first crossing. Follow the road to the left which takes you down to a farmhouse and to the beginning of a steep gravel path. Follow this partly steep path until the highest point of the tour. After a descent of only a few metres you get to a forest path which winds up in few curves to the Rigi, at 1533 m above sea level (connecting route n° 268). The descent leads you first along a busy forest path to Gasthof Schlossblick and further on to Itter, the so-called “village of roses”. From there, after 700 metres along the main road, a nice forest path will lead you back to Hopfgarten via Hacha.
Many more possibilities for bike routes from the middle station Hopfgarten:
From the middle station you can take a forest road over the two lakes Speichersee Hohe Salve and Salvensee (400m difference in altitude). Here you decide again: either direction to Brixen, direction Söll, direction Rigi ..... Please ask for more information at the cash desk - we will help you!
