Wonderful cross-country ski trail with a circuit of the Spechtensee lake, which is idyllic whatever the season.

Safety information

Available GPS data are - like maps - only a guide, as they can never represent an exact image or the richness of detail of a cross-country ski trail in reality. Of course, trails also depend on the snow conditions and can therefore only be shortened or prepared with an alternative route.
