Three peaks in one day - one of the most popular bike tours in our Altenberg holiday region.

From Altenberg it goes over the Dippoldiswalderstrasse and the Neustadtstrasse in the direction of Geisingberg. Passing the Altenberger Pinge, through the mountain meadows you will reach the 824 m high mountain. In addition to the mountain chalet, the watchtower Louisenturm awaits you here, offering you a view of the Altenberg  region. Then it goes steeply downhill towards Geising. Along the historic streets and the Hüttenteich natural pool, you ride up to the Kohlhaukuppe (786 m) - now known as the Knoblauchkuppe ( Knoblauch = garlic ) due to the garlic delicacies in the mountain hut. Along the German-Czech border (Sommerweg) you drive towards Zinnwald-Georgenfeld and cross this small mining village towards the "Lugsteine". From there, the Schneise  30 takes you to the Kahleberg -  905 m above sea level, the highest point in the Eastern Ore Mountains. Here you can enjoy breathtaking panoramic views. After a short rest, continue along I-Flügel and Alten Zaunshäuser Weg, back to Altenberg.
