The path of deceleration leads you along the Große Mühl over the peaks on the Böhmerwald ridge. The start and finish of the tour, which is just under 71 kilometers long, is Stift Schlägl in Aigen-Schlägl. The first day serves as a relaxed introduction to the summit adventure. On the following three days, you will hike to a new peak every day: the Plöckenstein, the Stinglfelsen and the Bärenstein.
