FATMAP difficulty grade
The Schachtenbach tour starts and ends at the Zwiesel railway station.
You start clockwise and cycle along cycle paths and side roads to Klautzenbach.
From Rabenstein it gets noticeably steeper.
Now follow the signs to Schachtenbach.
The tour is now mainly in the forest, except for a short open space near the Hennenkobel.
The dreamy hamlet of Schachtenbach, situated in the middle of the forest, invites you to linger and relax after this effort.
About 130 years ago, a very famous glassworks stood here, whose products still have collector's value today.
A long descent follows until you reach Rabenstein, where you meet the route from the way there again.
This leads back to the starting point at Zwiesel railway station.
