Gösser and Lärchsattel

Open
Circular hike with starting point at the Dürntalwirt inn to the Gössersattel with connection to the Lärchsattel. Fantastic views guaranteed.
On the circular hike on the Gösser- und Lärchsattel, every nature lover gets their money's worth due to the dreamlike views. Only a few minutes by car from Weiz, the Gösser- und Lärchsattel is perfect for short hikes with the whole family. You start at the Dürntalwirt inn and after a few minutes you enter the first section of forest.

The region is known for its cave systems. In particular, the Katerloch and the Grasslhöhle, which our trail passes, are enjoyed by numerous guests and are a source of amazement. The Naas Cave Trail, whose signs we encounter several times on our tour, connects these cave systems. The view along the tour in the direction of the Almenland Nature Park as well as the hilly landscape of Eastern Styria and the city of Weiz is beautiful.
