Tour description:

Route: Bergen - Maria-Eck pilgrimage church (800 m) - Hochfelln middle station - Bründlingalm (1165m) - Hochfelln middle station - Gleichenberg Alm (1025m) - Kohlstatt - Bergen

The best way to start the ascent towards the impressive Hochfelln is in Bergen at the Hochfelln valley station . From the car park you pedal uphill on the best roads to the Maria-Eck pilgrimage church. Shortly behind you can dare a spectacular view of the Chiemsee near the Mariengrotte. We continue around the Hammerberg. At the next junction, keep left uphill in the direction of the Hochfelln middle station . A huge natural "amphitheater" soon opens up, peppered with lots of rustic alpine pastures. You crank past the middle station and in a few steep hairpin bends up to the Bründlingalm. After the well-deserved stop, you roll back down the same path, past the middle station and to the well-known junction. Here you keep to the left and cross the entire northern flank of the Hochfelln. On the way, you can recharge your batteries at the serviced Gleichenberg Alm , before you take a brisk ride to the Weißen Ache and follow it out to Bergen - from the Kohlstatt car park on fine asphalt. But watch out: cars!
