Tour of Bavaria at the opening stage on Tyrolean soil and were rewarded with the mountain classification Tannheimer Tal and the mountain classification Jungholz And even professionals noticed the scenic charms of the "probably most beautiful high valley in Europe". Lush green meadows, the Haldensee and a beautiful mountain scenery accompanied the cycling pros on their competition kilometres. And thus the Tannheimer Tal has also advertised itself as an ideal region for specific training or extended tours. "The Tannheimer Tal is an ideal starting point for long racing bike tours to the surrounding regions such as Lake Constance or the Arlberg", says Michael Keller, managing director of the tourism association Tannheimer Tal and former national mountain bike coach of Austria.
