In the Pielachtal, the Dirndltal (valley), is Rabenstein an der Pielach an ideal starting point for many leisure activities, such as mountain biking. With a mountain bike, the circular surrounding peaks can be excellently reach, as also the Kaiserkogel.
Past the Pielach wooden bridge, the Kaiserkogel-trail runs along the Deutschbang up to the Güterweg (trade route) “Kaisergrub“. Continue through the "Etzhof", where a sophisticated ascent leads to the Kaiserkogel-Hütte. The descent is accomplished in the direction "Hagelbauer" up to the Meiselhöhe. Continue on to Plambacheck to the mouth of the B39. Turn right in the direction of Hofstetten-Grünau and before the "Pielachtaler Sehnsucht" turn left towards Pielachtal cycle path. Then on this turn left back to the train station at Rabenstein.
As cultural attractions lure the culture historical ruins, the late Gothic Parish and at the same time Church of Dr. Franz Cardinal König and the nature gardens around the hotel "Stenschalerhof" and a "NatUr" wood in our "Climate Alliance"-(since 1997) and Fairtrade (2010–present) village on the Mariazellerbahn.
