Auenberg - The most beautiful route to the Radlpass

Open
The Auenberg-Radlpass tour is a classic Mounatinbike round trip and probably the most beautiful route up the Radlpass and back.
From Eibiswald via Aibl on one side of the Radlpass road over the Auenberg to the Radlpass and on the other side via the fantastic Römerweg back to Eibiswald. In between, on the first half of the tour, there is a wonderful climb over the Auenberg, fantastic views of the Kapuner Kogel, a short single trail past "Luis' Büro" and finally a super awesome gravel section down to the Radlpass (take your passport with you). On the second half, the tour rolls pleasurably - with a short steep intermediate climb - via the Römerweg and Stammeregg back to Eibiswald. Unique views down to Eibiswald included. In a nutshell: Starting from Eibiswald, probably the most beautiful route to the Radlpass and back.

 

The "Auenberg-Radlpass-Tour" is the mountain bike tour of your choice if you want to

  • want to view and experience the wonderful landscape between Eibiswald and the Radplass from two sides: once to the west of the Radlpass road up the Auenberg and once to the east via the Römerweg and Stammeregg back again,
  • want to enjoy fantastic views of the Kapuner Kogel from the Auenberg ascent,
  • shortly after Luis' office, want to really savour super casual gravel roads on the Slovenian part of the loop for a few kilometres and let their legs hang out a bit,
  • want to enjoy a good espresso at the border on the Radlpass before descending into the steep Römerweg (caution: very steep sections!),
  • want to experience one of the original climbs of the Eibiswald mountain bike scene on the Radlpass as a downhill,as the last highlight of the tour from Stammeregg down to Eibiswald, get to know completely new views of Eibiswald, especially of the beautifully renovated Eibiswald Castle.
