Continue on #305 toward Ruhpolding and Reit im Winkl.

At 27 km is an open meadowland scattered with large farm buildings. To your right is a small lake.

At 29.9 km is a turnout offering great views of the valley. Between late October and late April snow here is a possibility. The road begins to descend.

At 32.4 km we turned right for a short auto tour of Ruhpolding, a typically well-groomed Bavarian town with many traditionally painted houses. Near the Rathaus is a model train exposition.

At 41 km we were back on the road to Reit im Winkl. This portion of the drive is quite scenic and from Seehaus to Seegätterl the road is flanked by lakes and dams.

At 61.5 bear right into Reit im Winkl, staying right toward Marquartstein. If the model train exhibit was for the kids, the town's Schnapps Museum is for adults.

As you leave Reit im Winkl the road rises and to your right will be some ski jumps. The Maserer Pass at 793 meters (2600 feet) is crossed at 67 km.

Next are three small villages; Oberwössen, Brem and Unterwössen just before Marquartstein at 77 km. You are now on the Chiemsee plain with the mountains in your rearview mirror.
