Lois Steiner Weg

Open
The sunny hiking trail runs from St. Lambrecht to St. Blase along the 4th stage of the VIA NATURA, the 130 km long long-distance hiking trail.
This long-distance hiking trail extends in 10 stages, connecting all 3 nature park communities and encouraging people to learn from nature and get closer to it again. The 4th stage deals with the topic of “Sound in nature and architecture”. Part of the Lois Steiner Trail also runs along this beautiful section of the trail. The Lois Steiner Trail can also be hiked in WINTER.

The area of St. Lambrecht, St. Blase, Lassnitz, Murau and Ranten is very important in the area of folk culture: throughout Styria we are one of the regions that is home to an incredibly large treasure trove of songs that have been passed down through generations. Thanks to one man, Lois Steiner, this treasure trove of songs was preserved. He recorded around a thousand songs, one of his most famous and often sung is the Christmas carol “O Jubel, o Freud”.
