Spiritual Path, Weiz

Open
Pause and come to rest in the energy city of Weiz - that's exactly what the Spiritual Path offers.

"At the 7 sources of strength" is the motto of this modern pilgrimage trail. Seven sources of strength invite you to pause and reflect, but above all to recharge your batteries.

There are seven stations along the three-kilometre-long path. They are intended to guide the modern pilgrim on the path of personal and spiritual experience. The path is designed so that it can be walked alone or in a group. The walking time is 30 minutes. The path is well signposted. On the signs you will also find concrete suggestions for the content.

Route planner 

  • From the main square, the path leads through Rathausgasse and, after a slight left turn at Café Weberhaus, past the Zur Goldenen Krone inn (on our right).
  • We continue straight on and after a right-left combination we pass a tall white tower and come to Siegfried-Esterl-Gasse. From there we continue straight until we reach the red tower. From this point there are two options for the rest of the tour:

Option 1:

  • We continue straight along Sigfried-Esterl-Gasse until we reach the intersection at Schillerstraße.
  • At this junction we continue straight on again and follow the signs to the stations until we finally reach the Weizberg.

Option 2:

  • We turn right at the junction with the red tower and are then on Kapruner Generator Straße. We follow this until we pass some shops (Intersport, H&M, etc.) and come to a large crossroads.
  • Here we turn left into Birkfelderstraße and follow this road until we come to the roundabout in front of the Evangelical Church in Weiz.
  • Passing the roundabout on the left, we turn into Schillerstraße and continue straight ahead until we reach the intersection of Siegfried-Esterl-Gasse and Schillerstraße. At this junction we turn right.
  • From here we follow the signs to the stations until we finally reach the Weizberg.
