Hike to the Katharinenstein

Open
The hike leads to a legendary place in honor of the parish patron saint St. Catherine in St. Kathrein am Hauenstein.
The route leads from the center of St. Kathrein am Hauenstein via the so-called mining settlement to the Katharinenstein. According to legend, the parish patroness protected the inhabitants here from being taken over by the Turks in 1529. A footprint of St. Catherine reminds us of the appearance of the parish patroness. The water that collects there is said to have a healing effect.
