Tip/Fun-Fact: At 893 metres, the Schöpfl is the highest mountain in the Vienna Woods. From the Matraswarte lookout post at the summit, the surrounding hills look like waves in the ocean.

From the viewing platform of the Matras-Warte at the highest point of Schöpfl, an impressive view of the Laabental valley, the Wein- and Waldviertel, the Quiet Mountains, the Peilstein, Leithagebirge, the Gutensteiner and Türnitzer Alps, Schneeberg, Rax, Ötscher, yes, on clear days even Hochschwab and Totes Gebirge can be seen.

Safety information

Trotz sorgfältigster Recherche kann es bei den Strecken zu unvorhergesehenen kurz-, mittel- oder gar längerfristigen Sperren (z.B. wegen forstlicher Sperrgebiete durch Grundbesitzer) kommen. Von uns empfohlene Parkmöglichkeiten können teils privat oder gebührenpflichtig sein – bitte auf die Beschilderung vor Ort achten. Manche Wege können abschnittsweise oder zur Gänze durch gebührenpflichtige Betriebe/Gebiete führen (z.B. Naturparke oder Klammen). Darauf wird aber in der Regel explizit in der Beschreibung hingewiesen. Alle Angaben erfolgen ohne Gewähr und die Benützung der Wege erfolgt auf eigene Gefahr. Etwaige Wegesperren sowie Hinweise von Jagd- und Grundbesitzer sind zu beachten.

Destination

Laaben

Turn-by-turn directions

Starting at Laaben town hall, we will head east. At the first turn-off, we will turn right (onto Sackgasse) and follow the red route (WWW 04). We will continue for approx. 700 m through a meadow, until we reach the first farm yard, and walk down the goods road to the Icelandic horse farm. Once there, we will turn right. At the edge of the forest, we will go up the “Heinrich-Gith-Steig” or the “Pensionisten-Steig”. We will pass the Schöpfl-Schutzhaus inn and the Matras-Warte lookout post, and continue along the ridge of the Schöpfl (red & blue routes), down to the country road, and walk approx. 900 m to Café Klammhöhe. Our route will now take us up through the forest, to the Gföhlberghütte inn (on the Juneberry Trail), and then up to the Gföhlberg summit. At the next turn-off, we will turn left and follow the blue route to the end of the Juneberry Trail. Further on, the route (blue, No. 622) joins WWW 04, which leads back onto the country road. We will follow it for a while, before turning right after the castle, passing the black cross (on the green route) and finding ourselves back in Laaben.
