Tschakathurn round

Open
A moderately difficult hiking route, with wonderful landscape scenery and one or two viewing points that invite you to linger.
This is a 6.5km long tour through Scheifling.

This short hike leads through the Lower Feßnach past the old gravel pit via Tschakathurn (Schachenthurn) to St. Lorenzen and back to the main square. The path does not lead directly to the Tschakathurn castle ruins. The old ruin can be admired from some distance above.
