On the 22-kilometre hop tour, we can enjoy the magnificent view along the high road. The energy self-sufficient organic brewery TONI-Bräu is an experience.
The tour through the Kaindorf ecoregion is named after a private brewery on the route. We can also visit this brewery (guided tour and tasting). There is also an organic fruit farm on the route, as well as Obermayerhofen Castle. As the circular route runs mostly off the main road, it is characterised by a quiet and pleasant route that is also ideally suited for families. Numerous refreshment stops and supermarkets are located on the tour.
A short stop for a cold beer at the private organic brewery Toni Bräu, which gives the circuit its name, is almost part of the hop tour!

There is the possibility to taste the organic beers and also to take part in a guided tour of the brewery. A beautiful descent then leads on to Ebersdorf and as far as Sebersdorf you just glide along on the plains.
