The MTB Tour Zwölferhorn in St. Gilgen on the Salzkammergut lake Wolfgangsee start in Brunn. She is a very well-marked official mountain bike tour in the state of Salzburg. The small village Brunn is located between Abersee and Gschwandt near the Wolfgangsee south bank. The best parking you can find about 1km off the main road to St. Gilgen.

To start a little away will not hurt because the bike tour starts with an average slope of 10% on the first 1.5 km (max. 15%). The single-lane toll road is paved on the first 1.2 km and then a dirt road leads up to the pasture Illingeralm. Past Meindlalm and after Steingrabenalm there are 2 easier sections. In addition to the first kilometer, the 3.2 km section of the Stübleralm and up to the Illingeralm is with an average gradient of 13% very tiring. After 8 kilometers there is with the inn Illingerberg the first possibility for a little break. But you should not eat so much, as already some hundred meters further you have to push up your bike 200m from the Illingeralm to the level before the Pillsteinhöhe (red line in the Google Map). From the Illingeralm you’ll have a great view of the Pillsteinhöhe and peak Zwölferhorn. Also to the mountain Schafberg on the other side of Lake Wolfgang, including the gear train is clearly visible.

Now you’ll bike on a 300m long narrow, not to steep meadow path  that only interrupted once by a 10m long slide path. Back on the forest road you drive with your bike uphill in the west past the mountain Pillsteinhöhe. Then follows a 30 altimeters downhill. Right in the hollow between Pillsteinhöhe and Zwölferhorn is the intersection where we return again after the Zwölferhorn top station. Up to the mountain station also on the west past the not managed hut Arnikahütte you’ll reach the Zwölferhorn mountain station after 800m. Next to the terrace of the restaurant at the top station there is the cabin Franzl's Hütte to enjoy the fantastic views and gain strength before the upcoming downhill. On Zwölferhorn there is a small winter ski resort. Who will not leave alone his bike during the very short hike to the summit on Zwölferhorn 1.522m (approx. 50 meters) can push it up without difficulty on the wide track (green line in the Google Map). On the other side of the summit Zwölferhorn, the hiking trail leads down to the Arnikahütte. This road is not suitable for bikes.

At the beginning of the downhill you pass on a nice dirt road Arnikahütte and Stubneralm. At the big parking lot for cars on the Saustallalm turn right and then you’ll bike 600m and 55 altimeters up to the managed hut Sausteigalm. Immediately after the Sausteigalm starts a very interesting 1,2km long single track. In the beginning you bike through a narrow road with no major technical requirements uphill. This is followed by a very interesting steep descent. Who will not risk too much must push his bike only twice about 100m. After the Farchbachalm you’ll reach the toll road again. The last section down to the starting point in Brunn is very comfortable. For all mountain bikers that this trip is too short, I recommend the bike tour Wolfgang. This is also very nice tour that leads around the mountain Schafberg and Lake Wolfgangsee.
