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.
