Easy cycling route following the trail of Kramsach's thermal waters. Water is a cultural asset! Explore the beautiful nature around the streams, fountains and lakes along the KulTOUR Heilwasser route in Kramsach.
The tour starts at the Inn Valley cycle path no. 2, at the Rattenberg/Kramsach bridge over the Inn. Cycle towards Kramsach and follow the signs to the “Heil- & Thermalwasserbrunnen” (thermal water fountain) in Kramsach/Waidach. Cycling to the left of the Brandenberg River the route leads towards Kramsach centre and on to the Kramsach Kneipp facilities and the former "Holztrift" (wood used to be transported down the river). Following a short uphill cycle, pass the defunct Sonnwendjochbahn and continue along the L4 towards Brandenberg/Aschau. At the second wooden bridge cross the river and continue towards the Mariathal Basilica and the Kramsach lakes.
