Towards Bad Dürrenberg and Hallein the route follows the major roads - always straight ahead. Make sure you do not get distracted by the many narrow turns. In Hallain there is the next left-turn in direction Kuchl and Golling. We do not take the highway. Along the B 159 you reach Bischofshofen, where some more joy is waiting. 40 km amazing road takes you into the world of the Hochkönig. No toll, 8 turns, up to 1.357 m above sealevel.

TIPP by Milan - our motorcycling expert knows more:
This trip is an amazing round trip into our “neighborhood”. Amazing landscape varies with narrow roads and sporty road-sections. TAKE CARE - is the motto between Saalfelden and Lofer - the 100 km/h speed limit you should definitely keep in mind. New radar boxes wait for you.
Take your time and find your way to the Königssee. A variety of restaurants, cafes and ice-cream-shops are inviting during summer. On the road from Berchtesgaden over Bad Dürrenberg you must not speed. A few narrow turns are tricky and orientation is easily lost. But with our road-map on the website this route should not be any problem.
Whatever you plan or do, make sure you come back to the Hotel Lampenhäusl safely. The sauna is already hot and in the kitchen we prepare delicious meals for you. Even your bike deserves a rest after this long trip. In our Lampenhäusl-garage we offer everything you need, in order to care for your motorcycle.
See you on tour - we look forward to your visit!
