Franz Scheikl climbing trail

This well-known climbing trail with a difficulty of A/B leads to the summit of the Hochlantsch, the highest peak in the mountains of Graz. Some sections are more difficult but these can be bypassed. Since the renovation in 2017, the climbing trail is now also accessible to sporty families.
