Continue straight along the path in the direction of Westerhofen, until the path leads right to Schweineberg and the Wittelsbacher Höhe.

We continue to Schweineberg, where you have the opportunity to buy cheese directly from the new store of the alpine dairy (please note opening times). The Bauerngasthof Café Mayr invites you to relax, here you can enjoy tasty regional dishes in a cozy atmosphere. The Restaurant Waldhaus in the golf course at Muderbolz is also worth a visit with a noble alpine ambience and very good service and excellent cuisine. Follow the road in Schweineberg to the west towards Wielenberg and Muderbolz. When exiting Schweineberg, you will find on the left  the small cleared path taking you downwards along the Sonnenalp Resort as to the road, where you take the path right back to the golf course in Muderbolz.
