Archduke Johann path

Open
A great hike with a wonderful view over Vorau and the Joglland-Waldheimat region.
The extensive circular hike leads from Vorau Abbey down to the Brühl and leads up to the Erzherzog Johann Höhe and back again via the Amtmann Höhe. The viewing platform on the Erzherzog Johann Höhe invites you to linger. The platform offers a resting place and a telescope, for a wonderful panoramic view. The leisurely hiking tour runs mostly on well paved forest and forest paths.
