Lobmingtaler Höhenweg from Grosslobming to Kleinlobming

The Lobmingtaler Höhenweg connects the villages Groß- and Kleinlobmin (Tour Nr. 45e.) and can be described as a sporty, varied hike, with beautiful ascents and descents, along forest and meadow areas. 
The Lobmingtaler Höhenweg connects the villages of Großlobming and Kleinlobming and can be described as a sporty, varied hike, with beautiful ascents and descents, along woodland and meadow areas. The newly marked and signposted hiking trail impresses with magnificent views in between, e.g. after the Gföller farm you have a magnificent view of the largest inner-alpine basin of Styria (Judenburg-Knittelfelder Becken) and the Seetaler, Seckauer and Wölzer Alps rising behind it. At a mean sea level of about 1000 m, the path leads through forests with light, panoramic sections until you reach the sunny side of the Kleinlobming. Through the last section of this hike you will get to know the surroundings of Kleinlobming in slight ups and downs and can enjoy the view into the valley at a special, somewhat hidden resting place. Kleinlobming convinces with a small, fine village center with good middle-class and well-known inns and a grocery store.


CONCLUSION: Everything that an enjoyable hike needs: at the beginning and at the end very good places to stop for refreshments, perfectly marked and signposted paths and numerous viewpoints along the hike.

We start in the center or at the parking lot of the Raiffeisenbank in Großlobming (1), 641 m, and follow the yellow signs with the inscription "Lobmingtaler Höhenweg". It goes through the center of the village in the direction of Kleinlobming and then left into the Sulzbachgraben. At the end of the avenue trees, we turn right, past the houses, and now follow the signs to the Jägerkreuz at the Lobmingtaler-Rosenkogel (2), 1008 m, uphill through the forest, along sunken and forest paths, some of them steeper. After a leisurely break, the trail goes slightly downhill, at the farm vlg. Gföller (3), 920 m, past the farm and continue slightly uphill along the asphalt road. During the ascent we have a wonderful view of the largest inner-alpine basin of Styria and the Seetaler, Seckauer and Wölzer Tauern Alps rising behind it. At the next crossing we keep right and hike on forest roads, at the farmstead vlg. Schachner farm.   The path is well marked and signposted and leads mainly through the forest. With the farm vlg. Kahlbauer (4), 915 m, we now reach the populated area on the sunny side of the Kleinlobming. Here there would also be the possibility to shorten the hike a bit and take the direct way over the road to Kleinlobming. We turn left at the Kahlbauer farm and are now parallel to the sunny side circular hiking trail. We continue along the gravel road until we see the turn-off with the yellow signs after a right turn. We follow the forest path, which turns into a hiking trail and leads to a wooden footbridge and fountain. Afterwards we follow the forest road slightly downhill and soon we see the signpost to Jausn-Platzl (8), 835 m. A cosy Platzl to enjoy the view into the valley. After the break we follow the forest road downhill until we reach the asphalt road in the valley. Here we turn right and follow the road to the center of Kleinlobming (5), 759 m.ben. 
Visit the "herb man" at the Großlobming school - this extraordinary herb garden, that provides completely new insights into the world of herbs.
