Tour information

We start the tour at the Bike Info point at the P3 gravel car park in Hopfgarten. From there we follow the signs on the Kelchsau road into the valley for approx. 500m before we cross the Kelchsauer Ache river on the left over a bridge. On the other bank we cross the Elsbethen settlement. The Elsbethen church, which gives the village its name, lies on the edge of the settlement on a small hill at the foot of the Engelsberg castle ruins.
At the crossroads to Glantersberg, we follow the asphalt road uphill to Glantersberg. This is captivating with amazing views of the Hohe Salve and the many magnificent farms along the way. At the height of the Toif farm, you now branch off to the left. The route now becomes steeper and after a few hundred metres continues on gravel into the alpine pasture area high above Kelchsau - the most beautiful place in Tyrol 2020.
First you pass the front and back Ölbankalm before you can make a detour to the Lodronalm at a junction. From there you can walk the Lodron (from Lodronalm approx. 1 h) on the tracks of the KAT Walk.
The descent down to Kelchsau then leads along forest and alpine paths past the Demmelshütten and extensive alpine pastures.
Once in the valley, you can fortify yourself at the traditional Fuchswirt inn before finally returning to Hopfgarten on the Kelchsau road to the starting point.
 
TIP: The tour is particularly beautiful in early summer when the countless alpine roses along the route are in bloom.
