Teams must fly to Munich, Germany. Upon arrival, teams must drive themselves to Ruhpolding and take a cable car to the top of Rauschberg, where they would find their next clue.

"Who's ready to fly like an eagle?"

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must choose an instructor and, in tandem, paraglide off Rauschberg 6,000 feet below to a landing area, where their partner would be waiting. In the event of unfavorable winds, they have a choice between waiting an undetermined amount of time for optimal weather conditions or taking a 60-minute hike down the mountain to the landing area. Once at the landing area, they would find their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Everyone except Mel opted to hike down the mountain due to unfavorable wind conditions.

Teams must drive themselves to Schönau am Königssee and find the bobsled track, where they would find their next clue.

Choice A: Balancing Dolly
Teams must ride Segways over a 2-mile road obstacle course to receive their next clue.

Jaime & Cara, Kisha & Jen, Mark & Michael, and Mel & Mike chose this task.

Choice B: Austrian Folly
Teams must enter a party tent and take turns throwing Bavarian pies at their partner's face until they have found one with cherry filling. Once they have found a pie with cherry filling, they would receive their next clue.

Amanda & Kris, Brad & Victoria, Christie & Jodi, Margie & Luke, Steve & Linda, and Tammy & Victor chose this task.

Teams must make their way on foot to Holzsäger and wait for the Tyrolean woodcutters to cut a piece of wood. Once teams have their piece of wood, it would be stamped with their next destination.
