Cycling this tour will take you from Lake Faaker See through the small villages of St. Niklas, Groß- and Kleinsattel towards Villach. From there you cycle back to the lake.

Author’s recommendation

Don´t forget to take a picture at the famous Egger Marterl - a wayside shrine in front of the beautiful scenerey!

The original start of the race in 1987 was in Maria Gail. However, there are not many parking spaces available there.
