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

Our hiking route starts at the “Klein-Mariazell Abzweigung” bus stop. From the bus stop, we will head north and follow the signs for the Klein-Mariazell Basilica, before turning right onto Leopoldpfad. We will follow the path, and head

to the basilica. We will bear right as we head to the basilica, passing the car park and following the signs for Via Sacra uphill. We will head along the panoramic circular route (right) and then past the Hüber-Kreuz and onto the red route towards Hafnerberg. After a short rest at the druid stones, we will follow Kreuzweg to the church on the Hafnerberg. From there, we will follow the signs for Neuhaus, until we pass the “Zum Kleinen Semmering” inn, and turn off down the first lane on the right. At the end of the lane, we will come to a forest path, which we will follow to the left and then straight downhill (red route). When we reach the main road in Nöstach, we will cross it and follow the signs to make our way to Altenmarkt an der Triesting.
