Around the Kapuner - or the Hausberg circuit

Open
Signposted mountain bike tour no. 105 around the Eibiswald Hausberg with a crowning finish on the 3Eiben Hausberg Trail.
There are things in life that make you particularly proud. This is the case with the Kapuner Tour and the Eibiswald cycling club. For many years this tour and especially the trail from the Kapunerkogel down to Eibiswald were tinkered with. Both in the selection of the best line and paths and organisationally in the form of the involvement and approval of the landowners. In the end, both were successful and thus the "Kapuner Tour - or the Hausberg Circumnavigation" is an absolute pearl in Eibiswald's range of tours. There are many highlights on this tour, three of which are worthy of mention: the Römerweg ascent to the Radlpass, the Kapun ascent on the Slovenian side to the former barracks and, as the crowning finale, the 3Eiben Hausberg trail from the Jägerkreuz to the Buschenschank and Glirsch winery and from there down to Eibiswald.

 

The "Kapuner Tour - or the Hausberg Circumnavigation" is the mountain bike tour of your choice if you are

  • want to go on a highlight hunt and experience three of the most beautiful sections of the Eibiswald mountain bike tours in one trip,
  • want to combine a physically demanding tour with a fantastic trail as a finale,
  • want to learn pure mountain biking, i.e. are looking for real trail fun both uphill on the Kapun climb and downhill on the Kapun trail,
  • want to try out your new e-mountain bike,are daring and want to try this tour with a gravel bike (very good riding technique required),
  • want to experience the Kapuner as Eibiswald's local mountain up close and personal and want to fortify themselves with a delicious snack and regional delicacies at the Glirsch shortly before the end of the tour.
