Set out from 4-star Bike Hotel Leonhard in the direction of Schwarzleotal and the Knappenstube / Unterberghaus. Here you will also find the starting point
for tours of the historical mine. Along Schwarzleo stream, 500 m uphill to the valley head, followed by a short 500 m stage (about 150 vertical meters) where you will need to get off and push. Now via a brief patch of forest and a meadow path, you will come to the Lindlalm on the Spielberg.
The ride takes about 2 hrs. - Schwarzleotal is definitely a "cool" touring tip, especially on those hot summer days - guaranteed to appeal to
all mountain bikers.
On August 15th of every year - which is a holiday - the Spielberg serves as the venue for the annual "Ranggeln" and "Boahaggln" wrestling tournaments.
Sports fans from Hotel Leonhard have also been a part of all the fun, so we hope that next year, we'll be able to welcome you to the event's "Guest Division" as well.
