From Gasthof Eberhard we head in the direction of Traboch. Once there, you can take a break at Gasthaus Meisenbichler. A wonderful shopping opportunity is the department store Sattler in Timmersdorf. A wonderful view over the valley is offered by the detour to Reiterhof Kern. In Pfaffendorf you should not miss the bacon specialties of Erich Steinrisser! For a change of pace, take a llama hike at Rössllhof Hubner in Mautern! Shortly before Kalwang you get the best of sausages and smoked meats at the Speckkaiser Girnerhof of the Mitteregger family. (** see author's tip) The tour leads back to Kammern (be sure to visit the museum courtyard!) where the Judmayer Inn invites you to stop for a bite to eat. Here you will also find the bee trail of the traditional beekeeping Stabler. At Nah & Frisch in the village you can enjoy a GenussReiche Jause. Directly on the way is the farm of the organic pioneers Kain. Stop by the Sommer-Stix family for a cider. Back in St. Michael, horse fans can visit the Steinegger organic farm. You can buy souvenirs in the store next to the school "Klein & Fein" and the butcher's store Kofler and the organic farm Einödmoar of the Haberl family, where you can also go on a herb hike.
