A semi-difficult tour for the mountain bike between the valleys Eggental and Tierser Tal. You head to the only observatory of South Tyrol.


From the centre of the Steinegg village, 820 m (1), you follow the main road for approx. 5 km in the direction of Gummer. At the sports centre, 1204 m (2), you turn right in the direction of Karneid. At the chapel Kasererbild, 1278 m (3), you continue straight to reach Gummer. At the junction near the fire fighters’ station, 1288 m (4), you turn left in the direction of Steinegg. 300 m from there you turn left again in the direction of the restaurant Vajolet. Before reaching the farm Malgeierhof you go right onto the “L-path” (red-white-red signs) until you reach the farm Untereggerhof and the observatory, 1336 m (5). The tour now follows the asphalted road uphill. 100 m from here you turn left in the direction of the Kasererbild chapel (3). Via the Tschigghof you will reach the chapel after a short track through the forest. You continue in the direction of Karneid and 900 m from here you turn right to follow the asphalted road to reach another house. You continue straight and follow the forest track downhill until you reach the forest road Z. You follow this path until you reach the Oberölgartnerhof. Still downhill along the road you pass the Unterölgartnerhof and reach the Wiedenhof, 915 m (6). From here you follow the path W to Steinegg. Just after the Wiedenhof you will face a junction where you keep left. After 80 m you will face a track of approx. 150 m where you have to push your bike. Through the forest you will finally come back to Steinegg.
