The blue Katzenbachsee round

The blue Katzenbachsee round is a more challenging 15-km track


  • Length: 14.7km
  • Height difference: 229m
  • Terrain: hilly
  • Characteristics: asphalted roads, gravel roads
  • Difficulty: slightly challenging


The track leads from the INSPO through the Büsnauer Wiesental to the Max Planck Institute. From there it trespasses the Büsnauer Wald, past the Katzenbacher Hof, over the Bernhardshöhe (Stuttgart's highest elevation) and the Katzenbachsee.

The course mainly leads through the forest making it the perfect track on sunny and warm days. Half of the paths consist of asphalt and the other half of gravel. There are several steep ramps and slightly longer but flatter climbs, so the course is rather demanding. Leading down the Bernhardshöhe is a narrow unpaved path and therefore technically demanding as well.
