Leaving Klopeiner See past Klein See you reach the L118 and head towards the bridge over the Drau at Gallizien.

After then reaching Grafenstein you take a network of small country roads passing through local villages and farmland before reaching St. Michael am Zollfeld. A little later you turn right at St. Donat and take a short climb behind Magdalensberg.
Passing the castle of Hochosterwitz you then head east along the B82 to Brückl before turning south a short time on the cycle way along the B92. Then turning left you are once again back on very quiet roads through the small villages to St. Margarethen.
Please take care on the short crossing of the B70 main road before riding to Tainach, across the Drau and a final short climb back to St. Kanzian.
