From St. Sebastian over the Habertheuersattel to the Bürgeralpe

Open
Hike to the Mariazell Bürgeralpe - this time we start in St. Sebastian and hike via the Habertheuersattel to the Bürgeralpe.
We start in St. Sebastian and hike through the Habertheuer past the settlement to the Mitterbach/Mariazell turnoff. Here straight on in the direction of Habertheuersattel, there keep right and follow the signpost. Along the Drei-Seenblick hiking trail we reach the Kristallsee and the Edelweißhütte and a little further on the mountain inn.

In winter, this hike is recommended as a snowshoe hike!

Return on the same path or along the FIS bypass to St. Sebastian.

More information

via the Westautobahn (A1 from Salzburg or Vienna) to the exit Ybbs or St. Pölten/Süd, then B 20 to Mariazeller Land

from the south to Bruck/Mur - Kapfenberg, then B 20 over the Seebergpass into Mariazeller Land

From the parking lot of the chairlift in St. Sebastian (you can also park at the parking lot of the supermarket), turn right after the Dietl inn into Habertheuerstraße. Follow this road until you reach the Mitterbach/Mariazell turn-off and follow the signpost 692 along a forest road until you reach the Habertheuer saddle (1015m). Here, turn right onto trail 694 and walk a short distance along the Drei-Seen-Blick trail to the Edelweißhütte and then to the mountain inn.

We reach the valley either by foot (on trail 694 directly to Mariazell) or we keep to the right after the mountain inn and hike along the forest road (in winter bypass FIS 1, in summer mountain bike trail to the Bürgeralpe) down to the valley again to St. Sebastian. Or we take the cable car to Mariazell and then hike along the Rosary Trail out to St. Sebastian.

Erzherzog Johann Warte - the ascent with the many steps is rewarded with a wonderful panoramic view of the surrounding mountains!
