A little bit of everything: The Lengenfeld - Stratzing stage offers pure variety with cultural, scenic and sporting features.
The hike from Lengenfeld to Stratzing is full of variety. Cultural and historical facets are already evident at the starting point in the centre of Lengenfeld: The 15th-century Biri Gate, the 16th-century Lengenfeld Castle and the magnificent parish church with Gothic elements. Passing the natural vineyards of Sand, Kremsfeld, Satzen and Loiserweg, the route then leads to the Stratzinger Kellergasse. Along this path, the route finally ends in the centre of Stratzing, where wine taverns invite you to a cosy end to the hike. However, the tour does not have to end at this point. For all hiking enthusiasts, there are also local routes as an extension of the stage. Especially for the Eiszeitweg (Ice Age Trail), it is worth extending the tour - including interesting facts about past times and cultures.
Those who have the time and inclination can also explore the local hiking trails here, such as the Eiszeitweg.
Please note the following tips and advice to ensure that your hiking holiday is a beautiful experience:
- Stay on the marked trails and wear mountain/hiking boots.
- Please do not leave your rubbish along the path.
- Carry enough food (water/snacks) with you.
- Take the hiking map with you or use the free hiking app.
- Respect the sensitive habitats of flora and fauna.

A short stage awaits us here. Starting from the centre of the village, we cross the Lengenfelder Bach stream and walk up to the parish church of St. Pancras (originally a fortified Romanesque church) and on to Kremser Straße. Stay on this road for 100 m in a southerly direction and then branch off into Blauensteinstraße. After approx. 150 m, turn left up Weidengasse through the new settlement area. At the top, at the wayside shrine, we cross the main road towards Kittmannsberg. From now on, we constantly hike through vineyards and the Sand, Kremsfeld, Riedl, Satzen and Loiserweg vineyards.
The following subway of the B37 helps us to cross it safely. Via the Stratzinger Kellergasse, we reach the municipal office in the centre of the village. As with many places along our route, there is also the option of stopping off at a wine tavern.
