Zwischentoren Loisachtal Cycle Route

This cycle path connects the Loisachtal near Biberwier and Ehrwald with Reutte in the Lechtal: A section follows the Via Claudia Augusta

The R7 Route, proceeds through the meadows and pastures of the Lermoos Moorland, with a fantastic view on Mt. Zugspitze and the western peaks of the Mieming Mountains. On the heights of the Zugspitze-Tyrol Golf Course, the two trail variants cross: either you continue through the Loisachtal valley above Ehrwald to the Bavarian Garmisch-Partenkirchen, or you cycle via Bichlbach and Heiterwang to Reutte. This second option through the Zwischentoren Valley coincides with the Via Claudia Augusta Cycle Route, which follows the old Roman road to Venice in Italy.

The Zwischentoren Loisachtal Cycle Route (Radweg Zwischentoren Loisachtal) leads from Lermoos uphill to Lähn and Wengle and then slightly downhill to the villages of Bichlbach and Heiterwang. In case you are not in a hurry, you should make a side trip to the nearby Lake Heiterwang. The tour continues uphill to the Karliftstüberl tavern, and then downhill again to the well-known Ehrenberg Castle Ensemble, a real highlight with its Highline 179, the second longest swing pedestrian bridge of the world. The last section of the Zwischentoren Loisachtal Cycle Route leads via Ehenbichl to the town centre of Reutte, the district capital along the Lech river.
