Odernik Tour - the small Nandl with a big panorama

Often it's just casual to listen to the whole album. Because you have time, and because you have the leisure to listen to one or two numbers that don't rock from the first bar. And then there are days when you don't have the time or the leisure. On those days you need the hits. One after the other. On such days, you go on the Odernik tour.
The Odernik is the small Nandlrunde, you hear again and again from the locals around Eibiswald. And they do it,
  • when they don't have much longer than two hours,
  • but still want to work up a sweat - 750 metres in altitude are enough to get your jersey wet - ,
  • if you want to enjoy the wonderful views of the Remschnigg and St. Pongratzen, into Slovenia and down to Eibiswald and beyond into the South Styrian hills,
  • if you are looking for a few kilometres of super easy gravel roads and light forest paths in between, in order to at least have the feeling of having ridden "off-road",
  • and if you are looking for a quick drink at the Gasthaus Silgener in St. Lorenzen at the culmination of the strenuous climb and then an asphalt descent with 5-star flow character over the Hadernigg down to Eibiswald.

Of course, this is only one interpretation of the Odernik circuit. You can just as well take it easy, take a picnic backpack with you and enjoy not only a rest and a snack, but also a nap in the shade at one of the wonderful viewpoints along the way.

Or you can take the Odernik, first of all to get a good workout on the climb up to St. Lorenzen and then, as a reward, to take a longer break on the panorama terrace at the Silgener inn.

No matter how you set out on the tour, it always offers one thing: peace and seclusion after just a few metres, fantastic views, excellent side roads, kilometres of enjoyment on gravel and all this with the certainty that you won't be on the road for too long or that you will quickly be back in Eibiswald if the weather changes.

In a nutshell: a lot of value for a short round.
