The charmingly scenic tour of the Eschnerberg takes you around this mountain, through forests, marshland and hilly areas. Sometimes it leads along its sides and sometimes it seems almost distant.

It is possible to start the bike route at various points however the route passes over the Austrian border twice. Along with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains there are also numerous other sights such as the church on the hill in Bendern, the pilgrims church St Cornelli and the Vogelparadies (bird aviaries) Birka in Mauren.
