Tour information

Route 297 leads from Westendorf via Bahnhofstrasse to the district of “Moosen”. From now on, the road along the Salvenberg meanders steadily uphill. Passing the Alpenschule, we come to a car barrier (at an altitude of approx. 1,150m) after a sharp turn left. We cycle around this and after a short distance the asphalt road changes into a gravelled mountain trail.  After a few serpentine bends we reach a beautiful, embedded reservoir. A short stop with a little tour around the lake is worthwhile, for the beautiful view alone. Now we continue uphill towards the Kälbersalvenalm. Shortly below the Alpine pasture buildings we remain straight ahead / left on the road which takes us below the Salvensee Lake thus bypassing the pasture. After a fairly steep, short ascent we come to the highest point on our tour, below the Foisching lift mountain station. Now we turn left, staying along a beautiful Alpine path to the Gasthof Rigi. This is the perfect place for a comfortable, well-deserved stop. Connection possibilities to tours 268 and 269.
Please note: this tour is permanently on south-facing slopes - therefore often very hot and sunny!
