BergZeitReise Tagestourentipp Kindberger Suppenberg

A hike over the Suppenberg and through the Mürztal in the heart of Hochsteiermark. A cultural - culinary round around Kindberg. Also ideal as a day tour to get a taste of the High Styrian BergZeitReise or the Styria-wide multi-day tour "from glacier to wine".
The circular hike takes us over the historic Calvary, one of the most beautiful of its kind in Austria and over the "beautiful view" with a magnificent view of the Mürztal to the Ochnerbauer cross with a panoramic view of Rax and Schneealm to Hochschwab and the Eisenerzer Alps. In addition, there are culinary delights at the GH Ochnerbauer or also in Kindberg itself.

More information

Today we embark on an easy and not too long, but very scenic circular hike along the High Styrian mountain time travel high above the Mürztal.In addition, this tour can be ideally combined with a few cultural and historical interesting destinations, including a visit to one of the most beautiful Calvary Mountains in Austria.

From the guild tree over the Calvary to the "beautiful view".

We start our circular walk in the center of Kindberg, directly under the prominent guild tree, the town's landmark. We walk in a westerly direction along Stanzer Straße to the clearly visible Kalvarienberg, which we ascend via a steep wooden staircase.

At the viewing level we look out over the town of Kindberg and a large part of the Mürz valley. Now we continue, first along a path at the edge of the forest and, turning sharply left at an old wooden house and two large cherry trees, along a forest path to the start of the climb in the direction of the "beautiful view" (sign). Now in numerous hairpin bends, sometimes a bit steeper, to this "beautiful view" (small shelter).

Now we climb the Suppenberg

From this small shelter, we continue upwards across open meadows, past a hut, to a bend in the road. Here immediately to the right and again over a large meadow uphill to a prominent weather cross with a resting bench.

Now we have reached the marked path in the direction of Stanglalm and follow it uphill over forest tracks and short stretches of road to the so-called Suppenberg (farmstead "Simmerl im Eck", beautiful view into the Stanzertal). Continue on the marked path until you reach the junction of a mountain bike trail after a few minutes. If you want to shorten the tour here, you can now walk left downhill directly to the Ochnerbauer inn (partly asphalted road sections). But we follow, keeping slightly to the right, the markings further uphill to the so-called "Wolfsbrünndl".

Here, almost exactly 100 years ago, the last wolf in the region is said to have been killed - a small poem on a memorial stone here commemorates this event.

It goes downhill in the direction of Mürztal

Our path now turns sharply to the left and follows a forest road and later a forest trail downhill to the beautifully situated GH Ochnerbauer. Not far from there is also a prominent summit cross with one of the most beautiful viewpoints of the Mürztal. So we can now combine a culinary rest with a mountain panorama. From GH Ochnerbauer we now go, keeping slightly to the right over a hiking trail marked with red - white circle markings, partly quite steeply downhill in the direction of Kindberg.Thus we reach the Mürztal and cross the Mürz at Friedau Castle. Keeping to the left, we now follow the road and return to our starting point in Kindberg town center.

Along the hike or with short detours, nature experience and culture can be perfectly combined. For example, when visiting the Calvary, the Georgiberg Church (somewhat off the described route), the Kindberg Parish Church and the Kopfallee Oberkindberg.
