Marterlweg in Kaindorf

Open
Discover the 10 km circular hiking trail around Kaindorf, dotted with field and small monuments (Materl), which serve as religious companions along the way.

Experience an approx. three-hour circular hike from Kaindorf via Altenberg to St. Stefan and back to Kaindorf, which will immerse you in the rich history of the region. There are numerous "Materl", small memorials, along the way. Some were erected to mark the fulfillment of vows, to commemorate family events or tragic events such as wars and plague epidemics. Others mark the sites of accidents or crimes, commemorate the deceased or invite people to pray. These small monuments often bear the names of their builders or caring families, and some are named after the surrounding landscape. They are fascinating witnesses to an eventful history and adorn the beautiful landscape of Hartbergerland in Eastern Styria.
