New stage Golling – Carl von Stahl Haus – Königssee

June 2013

Bulging quads and killer calves?  Then the direct, but more strenuous, variation of the Golling to Ramsau/Königssee stage via Bluntautal and Carl von Stahl Haus may be for you.  It starts by snaking its way through open forests up to Ober Jochalm. The woodland opens up and before long you'll be carrying your bike. Tiring work, but worth it for the a sunny seat on the terrace at Carl von Stahl Haus. After a steep descent it's time for a ride along the Königssee until the new route joins up with the old, which goes via Hallein, Bad Dürmberg and Rossfeld to the Königssee and onto Ramsau.
