Snowshoe Hike Hauereck, St. Kathrein am Hauenstein

Closed
  Snow hike in the footsteps of Peter Rosegger!
Even Peter Rosegger, the famous poet from the Waldheimat, appreciated the Joglland - Waldheimat region for its beautiful landscape: When I walk through my home regions, I am completely myself. I feel an unresolved unity between myself and the mountains, meadows, forests and streams that surround me, a unity that has been and must be with me all my life, that makes up my full wholeness, in which I fill myself out, in short, in which I am - I can't say it any other way ~Peter Rosegger.

A leisurely, almost meditative tour on the Kathreiner Alm to the Hauereck. This snowshoe tour is particularly suitable for all those who simply want to enjoy the landscape or who are just starting out with snowshoe hiking.
