Mondweg cult hiking trail, Miesenbach

The Wildwiesenwarte in Joglland in northeastern Styria is one of the most popular hiking destinations for the entire family in the region. The panorama is impressive, the information that you can find on the boards and take home with you is exciting.
You should be careful with superlatives - but no one doubts that the Wildwiesenwarte offers the most beautiful panoramic view of Joglland over the forest home to our Hungarian neighbors. Fortunately, the control room is also open in winter and can be easily reached via the cult hiking trail from Miesenbach, but also from Wenigzell and Strallegg. The cult hiking trail is intended to create historical and ethnographic awareness among locals and guests using numerous information boards along the way.

Detailed information on how to get here can be found here.
  • From the Wildwiesenhof farm, we first walk in a westerly direction along a farm track through the Kulmbauer farmstead slightly uphill to a meadow
  • At the left edge of the meadow, the Mondweg branches off to the right and leads directly to the Wildwiese via a forest path
  • The view from the Wildwiese is a special experience: the 36-metre-high Wildwiesenwarte offers the most beautiful view of Eastern Styria, even as far as Hungary
  • The way back is either via the Floisenkogel with its weather cross in the middle of the forest or directly via the Mondweg back to the Wildwiesenhof
Due to the wonderful location, there is hardly any fog here, especially in autumn, and you can enjoy the wonderful view!
Timetables and travel information can be found at Österreichische Bundesbahnen (ÖBB) or at Verkehrsauskunft Verbundlinie. For local transportation we recommend the SAM-Sammeltaxi Oststeiermark.
