Mariazell EYE VIEWS: Sauwand

Open
Hike from Mariazell to the Sauwand.

The tour promises us great views of the Mariazeller Land!

The Sauwand is one of the top 10 Mariazeller AUGENblicken:

Treat yourself to your personal time out and enjoy the unique panorama at the vantage points of the Mariazeller AUGENblicke. There is time to take a deep breath and let your gaze wander into the distance at the vantage points of Mariazell.

The Sauwand lies to the south as seen from Mariazell and is the mountain that is the background motif on many Mariazell postcards, along with the Zellerhüten.

More information

Detailed information about how to get there can be found here:
We start at the main square in Mariazell and hike out of town along Wiener Neustädterstraße to the parking lot P5. After the parking lot we turn right on to Erzherzog Johann Weg and then left along Riedheimerweg to the main road, past the Erzherzog Johann monument (AUGENblick), along the B20 and turn left to the settlement Annaburg. From there, at the end of the settlement, descend into the Salzaklamm.

After a stretch along the Salza, we cross the Salza and hike up to the Oberkogelbauern, then continue on trail 426 on forest roads and short climbs to the Pollerboden and further to the summit.

The Alpenrosen hut, which we pass, is not managed. For the tour you should be sure-footed and free from giddiness, as it goes down steeply shortly before the summit cross.

Variant for the way back: on the hiking trail 427 to the Mooshuben and on the pilgrims' path over the Kreuzberg to Mariazell.
