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

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to choose an instructor and, in tandem, paraglide off a mountain 6,000 feet below to a landing area, where their partner is 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 receive their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

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

Teams must drive themselves to Schönau am Königsee and find their next clue.

Choice A: Balancing Dolly
Teams would have to 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 would have to enter a party tent and throw Bavarian pies on the target, which is their partner's face. Once they've found the one with cherry filling, they'll receive their next clue.

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

Teams travel on foot to a woodcutter workshop and wait for the Tyrolean woodcutters to cut a piece of wood. Once teams have their wood, it would be stamped on their next clue.

Teams must drive themselves to Salzburg, Austria and find Schloss Hellbrunn to check in.

For coming in first place, Tammy & Victor each won a hybrid go-kart.
