Properties

Cycle tour at a forced pace in headwind 40 km to Jenbach on the still tarmac and well signposted bike paths along the Inn. Along the lake of Achensee on a likewise excellent tarmac bike path right on the lake bank after a short shopping detour to Maurach with a stretch on a trafficed main road.

Remarks

Special stage! First a bus trip to Igls (again!) and from there a trip by cable car to the olympic mountain of Patscherkofel and likewise back again to our pension at the Inn bridge. Then a bike ride at a forced pace in moderate head wind to Jenbach in order to make the steam cog railway up to lake Achensee. We now left the river Inn! Up here again good time to the short stretch to the camping site of Schwarzenau right on the lakeside.
