 The route is considered to be particularly selective; after all, the forest road to the Werbutz Alm runs very steeply and is considered to be particularly challenging.

From the Vorderberg adventure natural swimming pool, the route first heads towards the Maria im Graben pilgrimage church. After 1.5 km you pass the turnoff towards Koutschitzalm - keep left here. Shortly after the pilgrimage church the gravel road towards Werbutzalm begins, which you reach at KM 7.7. Descent on the same route Due to the steepness of the route, the tour by E-MTB is recommended.

Author’s recommendation

On the way back, at km 14.0, a visit to the church of Maria im Graben is recommended. The church is a building from the 15th century to the late 17th century and is considered particularly worth seeing.

Tips and hints

The village Vorderberg was first mentioned in a document in 1212. However, the local castle Vorderberg is already documented in 1205. It probably also served as a loan from the diocese of BAMBERG to ANDECHSER, but by 1480 only one ruin remained
