Author’s recommendation
  • Take in the magnificent view from a small bench on the left of the road at the Kerschbaum Saddle!
  • On the way back from Bruck to Brixlegg you will pass the beautiful Matzen Castle Park. Treat yourself to a short break here, with a walk through the park or a snack in the Gut Matzen restaurant.
