Heilkräuterweg Aflenz - Kräutermeilen

Open
A circular trail that points out the diversity of medicinal herbs (www.heilpflanzenwissen.at) at nine marked stations and offers some experience stations in between.
The medicinal herb trail is basically designed as a circular route. It starts and ends in the spa park Aflenz Kurort. Nevertheless, the trail can also be hiked in stages, for example

from the spa park up to the Pierergut 1 hr.the round around the Piererkogel 2 hrs. - can also be done with strollers (forest road)from Pierergut to the sound sculpture and back 40 min.from Pierergut via Lammerbauer to Aflenz 2 hrs.In between, the trail offers experience stations that invite you to a holistic experience of nature with all your senses - like the wood sound, the scent noses and the landscape frames. The starting point is at the herbal snail in the Kurpark Aflenz. At the barefoot trail with its question houses we can already learn many interesting things about the plants.
