The Nordic trail starts at Gasthof Brückenwirt and takes you to Zwieselstein‘s sportsfield.

There you cross a bridge and follow the Venter Ache in a classic or skating variant to Bodenegg.

From the Bodenegg Jausenstation you cross the river with the help of a wide wooden bridge and follow the trail to the sports field to Zwieselstein.

During longer and colder periods of fine weather, you can often admire beautiful hoarfrost.
