Schlosspark Pöllau - Hinterbrühl - Hotel Restaurant Gruber

  • Starting in the Schlosspark at the signposts (east of the Parkcafe), the trail leads us across the Aupark past the open-air swimming pool in a northerly direction to the blue house of the mill and bakery Almbauer, where we keep to the left and meet the signposts for the Naturpark Erlebnisrundweg (yellow dot), among others.
  • We follow the course of the water channel (Brühlbach). Shortly after the outdoor grill, we reach the natural bathing pond of the ***Superior Hotel Restaurant Gruber.

Hotel Restaurant Gruber - Gut Lehenshofen - Halthansl

  • At the upper edge of the bathing pond at the marking with the yellow dots of the adventure circular trail heading south, the trail leads us past the eastern part of the Hinterbrühl recreation paradise to the detached house where we now turn right and thus meet the Haas farm and the municipal road, where we then keep to the right.
  • The Lehenshofen estate is on the left. Immediately after the water basin, the path branches off to the left in a cul-de-sac and passes through the farm of the Pöltl family into a wooded area until it reaches the L 432 main road.

Halthansl - Schweighofer wine tavern - Pöllau castle park

  • We cross the main road and after about 50 m (direction Pöllau) we turn right. Now we follow the slightly descending road and come to a junction where we continue to the left - or we take a break at the Buschenschank Schweighofer, Ziagl`s Laube, (note opening times!).
  • The path continues partly winding downhill through a wood, leads across a meadow, and after crossing a stream ("Mausbach") over a small bridge, we come to the asphalted country road and pass the Gleichweit nursery.
  • On the pavement, follow the yellow dot markings back to Pöllau to the castle park.

Here we experience the scenic diversity of the Pöllauer Tal Nature Park and enjoy the culinary delights of the region.
