We start the road bike tour from the Maria Alm tourist office. Ride through the village until you reach the Hochkönig Bundesstrape (B164). Turn left and ride to Hinterthal. Now comes the first mountain climb to the Filzensattel with approx. 250 metres altitude difference. Continue down to Dienten, at the roundabout take the second exit towards Mühlbach. The following mountain classification leads us to the Dientner Sattel with its beautiful views, again approx. 350 metres in altitude. Downhill with lots of bends to Mühlbach. You pass the church and the Mühlbach tourist office. From here it is about 400 m until you see the Arthurhaus sign. Turn left. Ride the challenging third mountain climb to the finish of the route, the Arthurhaus. We have another 750 metres of altitude in our legs.
At the Arthurhaus there is the opportunity to stop for a break and refill our water tanks.
The ride back to Maria Alm is just as spectacular.
