Alpine hut round

Enjoyable alpine hut round through the Swiss stone pine forest from the Waldheimhütte via the Türkenkreuz to the Rothaidenhütte in the Murtal adventure region styria.
A beautiful, leisurely circular hike through the stone pine forest in the Murtal adventure region. We start at the Waldheimhütte in St. Anna and hike past the Maria Zirbe memorial uphill to the Türkenkeuz. Afterwards we walk comfortably on the right hand side along the gravel path to the lovely Rothaidenhütte with a beautiful view to Obdach. Well strengthened, we go briefly steep (but not dangerous) over a meadow path and small stream to the hiking trail 48 back to the Waldheimhütte in the adventure region murtal styria.
