The market square in Painten is the starting point for the Peaceful Forests Tour, which leads first of all along a tarred forest road into the Paintner Forst. The hilly route sweeps round in a wide arc, taking the cyclist deeper and deeper into the shady forest. The first clearing is reached at the former forester’s house at Irlbrunn. Here, a link road offers the option of making a detour to the Frauenhäusl, a popular bar/restaurant in a picturesque setting. The route continues through the Frauenforst to the highway, which you cross. Carry on along a cycle track, passing a former glassworks, and so back to Painten.
