Kaumberg is the westernmost district in Triestingtal. It is situated just before the Gerichtsberg, which marks the border between Triestingtal and Gölsental. The difference between the rolling hills of the Vienna Woods and the foothills of the Alps is already clearly visible. Short hikes through the hilly landscapes to the north and east of the town of Kaumberg are possible.

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

Kaumberg, Marktplatz

Turn-by-turn directions

Our hike will start in the market place in Kaumberg. We will pass the war memorial with the barrel fountains, and the Heimatmuseum (Heritage Museum), before turning right and following the steps up to the parish church. From the cemetery just past the mountain settlement, we will leave the area by walking for approx. 1 km and then following a gently ascending meadow path towards Mayerhof. Now we will be able to see Araburg and – just below it – the car park of the Araburgstüberl inn. The ascent can be significantly shortened from there. We will head through the shady forest and directly to the castle. Approx. 400 m to the east of the Araburg ruins we will turn right to leave Long-Distance Hiking Route No. 04, and follow the red route to the village entrance (also marked in yellow from here). Back in the village, we will walk along Kollmannshof and Brennhof. Sonnenhangsiedlung will lead us back to the starting point.
