Falkenstein Castle Trail Map

Description

A short but challenging loop up to the ruins at the top of Falkenstein and down some testing and technical single track.

From the Breitenbergbahn lift station parking, you cross the railway tracks and follow the track clockwise around to the North side of Falkenstein.

Join the road and follow this to the top of the mountain, where stunning views of the Allgäu Alps await. You can also check out the castle ruins here.

Head down the marked trail but be warned this is switchbacks, drops and roots all the way so an advanced riding level is needed.

Also watch out for walkers as they share this path!
