Path of the labyrinths, Birkfeld

An ideal themed and adventure circular hiking trail for the whole family in the Joglland - Waldheimat region, with many adventure stations that invite us to join in.
The path of the labyrinths in the municipality of Birkfeld (Waisenegg district) invites children to enjoy the fun through the labyrinths and us adults to unwind and slow down. The trail leads us from the center of Waisenegg downhill to the Feistritz river, on the bike path past the Jausenstation-Seehütte, further in the direction of Birkfeld, over forest and meadow paths uphill to the Gallbrunner inn and along the municipal road back to the starting point.

A barefoot trail and six different labyrinths provide variety and entertainment. Text panels invite us to inner contemplation.

The yellow marker boards with the inscription "Weg der Labyrinthe" show us the way from the pavilion at the former Waisenegg municipal office through the entire loop!
