Teufelstein-Round, Fischbach

A circular hike along forest and woodland paths to the legendary Teufelstein at 1,498 m above sea level - a place of power with magical views of the Joglland-Waldheimat region.
The hike up to the legendary Teufelstein leads from the high-altitude climatic health resort via the Untere Halterhütte and Teufelsteinhütte up to the power place. The panorama from the Teufelstein extends from the Hochschwab across the Veitsch and Rax to the hilly landscape of Eastern Styria and Graz's local mountain, the Schöckl. Via the Alpengasthof Schanz, the Alpannonia long-distance hiking trail takes you back to Fischbach. On hot days, you can cool off in the cool water at Freizeitland Fischbach after the hike.
