The Hensle Inn in St. Gallen is both the starting and finishing point. What makes the tour so special is the accommodation, which is geared towards mountain bikers (e.g. they offer luggage transport) and the amazing panoramas of the National Park and the Nature Park. While marvelling at the peaks perched high above the valleys and the crystal-clear water, don’t forget to have a look at the signs every once in awhile.
At the end of day 1 you will reach Stiegenwirt Inn in Palfau, where you can enjoy a comfy bed and prepare yourself for day 2. On day 2 you will come across the Hochscheibenalm Tour in the National Park, before reaching the Kölblwirt Inn in Johnsbach, where you will spend the second night. On day 3 a pleasant surprise – the Johnsbacher Almenrunde Tour – is waiting for you, before your return to St. Gallen. Having finished the Buchstein Tour you can take a shower at the Hensle Inn if you fancy it.
Three days, 4700 m of vertical ascent and descent to get your calves working and many amazing views to help clear your head – that’s the Buchstein Tour. Get yourself the brochure and start pedalling. There’s also a package that you can book beforehand in case you don’t want to organise the tour yourself.
