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.

Turn-by-turn directions

We will start our tour at Laaben town hall. Heading west, we will go over the Laabenbach and turn onto the second street on the right. We will follow the Laabentalradweg (“Laabental cycle route”) for 300 m. After that, we will turn left and follow a forest and meadow route to Rotte Pirath. In the middle of the forest, we will join Long-Distance Hiking Route No. 04 and follow it for a short distance until shortly after passing a farm. From a paved service road, we will rejoin the country road. We will follow this for around 400 m, before turning right at a signpost and onto a meadow path. Passing the tennis courts and St Florian Monastery (a great rest point), a beautiful, shaded route along the banks of the stream will take us back to the village.
