Stage 23 From Glacier to Wine North Route Fischbach - Am Straßegg

Open
This stage of the hiking route "From Glacier to Wine" takes us from Fischbach, the highest mountain village in Eastern Styria, through beautiful forests and small alpine pastures in the direction of the Almenland Nature Park. A large part of the tour is identical with the Mariazell pilgrimage route - therefore we will also repeatedly encounter pilgrims on the way to Mariazell, the largest Marian pilgrimage site in Central Europe.
In Styria, hiking has a long tradition. Here, with 8 of a total of 10 long-distance hiking trails of the Austrian Alpine Association, you will find the most in Austria and weave one of the densest trail networks in the Alpine region. On this stage of the hiking route "From Glacier to Wine" we even move on two of these mentioned long-distance hiking trails, the Mariazell Trail 06 and the Central Alpine Trail 02, which leads from Hainburg on the Danube to Vorarlberg. The landscape of the stage: shady forest as promised by the name of the region - Waldheimat - and in between again and again small alpine pastures or clearings that tempt you to really let your soul dangle.
