In Elz stands as an archway the largest apple in the world, in Harl the "cathedral of the apple", the large fruit warehouse. In the "House of the Apple" the history of fruit-growing is presented, and here you can taste the fruit in liquid form and as a juicy pastry. The gravestone of Ignaz Weberhofer, Peter Rosegger's forest schoolmaster, is right next door. When the great poet visited him, it was for him "A journey to paradise".
Turn right at the Hoadnbauerkapelle and continue uphill past the Hofersiedlung.
After the forest turn left and follow the forest road, past the Hoader homestead, on to Hinterkulm. On the hill we follow the markings to the Sattelwirt.
From the Sattelwirt we walk in the direction of Kulmstraße and after about 50 m we turn into the forest road. This is marked with the No.9 green-white-green.
We follow the signs and so we go back in the direction of Apfeldorf Puch.
