Rambling routes to Leonberg
Starting from the place of birth, along the Inndamm to our lake. At the Dachlwand in the local recreation area the climb begins, through beautiful mixed forests, past historic sites such as the former location of the infamous robber baron's castle, high above the Inn valley and on to Leonberg. The beer garden at Leonberg invites you to have a snack. Freshly fortified, after another short stretch the Leonberg church of St. Sebastian can be visited. This little church is the former chapel of the Counts of Leonberg. The trail continues to a magnificent view over the entire Inn Valley and then back to Marktl.
Leaving from Marktl, the cycle tour starts to Bergham and Niedergottsau, to the Church of the Assumption (Mariä Himmelfahrt), the oldest pilgrimage church in the district. The route continues to Haiminger Innspitz, a well-known bird sanctuary. Here, many species of birds can be observed. The cycle tour returns to Niedergottsau and continues further along the Inn to Stammham, with its church of St. Lawrence. Particularly noteworthy are the newly restored stained glass windows. From there the route leads back to Marktl.
Beginning from Marktl, the cycle tour takes you over the Inn and through beautiful countryside, with farms and horse paddocks, to Dornitzen and the golf course at Oberpiesing. There, you can drop in for a coffee or a snack before returning to Marktl.
Setting off from Marktl, this cycle tour leads first to Bergham, to the beautifully restored church of St. Nicholas. This church, high above Marktl, is over 1,000 years and has Roman foundations. From there the cycle tour continues to Schützing, to a lime kiln. In days gone by calc was produced here from limestone in a three-day fire. The tour returns to Marktl via the Burghauser Forest.
We would be pleased to help you with the planning of extended rambling and cycling tours to Burghausen, Altoetting and Simbach.
