This demanding mountain bike tour leads through the beautiful and untouched countryside in the Brandenberg Alps. The trans-regional loop tour serves as an addition to existing MTB routes. There are two options for the tour start, of which each can be completed clockwise or anticlockwise.

Start at the Kaiserhaus in Brandenberg along a short uphill trail. The trail flattens out leading along the stream via the "Trauersteg" to the Erzherzog Johann Klause - where a dam used to hold back water for logging purposes. Continue via the Ackernalm and Riedberg to Brandenberg.

At the start is the entrance to the secured path leading through the impressive Kaiser Gorge. The Kaiserhaus with its wonderful garden is a perfect place to enjoy venison and fish dishes and savour the Prügeltorte (spit cake) - a sweet speciality typical for Brandenberg
