Starting point: Mittenwald
Stations (sorry, only in German): Lautersee (1014m)  -  Ferchenseehöhe (1100m)  -  Ferchensee (1059m)

Synopsis: Visit Mittenwald's most lovely lake for swimming and bathing on a hot summer day. Also possible with a normal crossbike. If necessary, you may push your bike at the final short steeper step for the length of about 150 m.

Variants: Extend the trip to Elmau and Kranzbach, or hike around the lake. Also a paddle boat trip is an experience.


At the  southwest end of Mittenwald we go up the road leading to Leutasch . We leave this road in the first sharp curve and go straight on following the signs to Lautersee / Ferchensee.

At the Lautersee the surface of the road changes and we ride on a well maintained gravelled forest road. The view back to the Lautersee below us and to the Karwendel is often photographed for calendar pictures. Take a deep breath here, before the road becomes steeper.

The last 150 metres uphill we can also push our bikes until we reach the Ferchenseehöhe. But now quickly back into the saddle and ride down to the picturesque Ferchensee
