Destination

Access to the cross-country ski trail at the Schöneck roundabout

Turn-by-turn directions

The trail begins at the entrance to the trail at the roundabout in Schöneck. It leads through the Meilergebiet, where there is a direct opportunity to take a short break. It then continues straight for about 4km until it turns right from the Heuweg onto the "langer Brückenflügel" in the direction of Kottenheide. After another 4km, turn left onto "Neuer Weg". After about 3 km the "Kammloipe" turns towards Schneckenstein and we leave it to the right to get to Kottenheide. The trail leads a little off the beaten track over meadows and fields, before it then leads back into the forest to Schöneck.
