Niederung - Tal LN 9a

This tour is also suitable for sporty families, leads through the adventure region ERZBERG LEOBEN and can be understood as a supplement to LN 9.
Complement to LN 9 with descent through the "valley" to Donawitz and special view of the blast furnaces of the steel mill.

Classic family route with around 500 meters of elevation gain and numerous viewpoints of Leoben, the Donawitz steelworks, the Liesingtal valley and the Trofaiach basin as well as the surrounding mountains. The route runs entirely off the main road and offers a mix of forest sections, rural settlements, industrial plants and agricultural areas. The cultural highlights can be found in St. Peter Freienstein, a tour of the Donawitz steelworks requires advance reservation and the lowland is considered an excellent vantage point.

More information

The starting point of this tour is at the parking lot of the Billa supermarket in St. Peter Freienstein.
The starting point of this tour is at the parking lot of the Billa supermarket in St. Peter Freienstein and, after crossing the railroad line, leads northward along the railroad line past Friedhofen Castle and Freiensteinerhof to the left on the Traidersberg. The long ascent winds first in open fields with magnificent views of the Reiting massif and Trofaiach basin and later in the forest to the lowlands. This section offers a magnificent panoramic view also into the Liesing valley, the Gleinalpe and to Leoben with the Donawitz steelworks. The descent leads through the "valley" back to Donawitz, and here, too, it is worthwhile to make regular stops to take a look at the enormous dimensions of the voestalpine plant with its steelworks - the blast furnaces dominate the picture here - and the rail rolling mill. From Donawitz, the route now leads back along the plant via Neuwerk and the Schörglhof settlement to the starting point.

The route is 2% on bike paths and 98% on secondary roads. The condition of these roads and paths is divided into 60% asphalt and 40% gravel.
