More information

The district capital of Weiz is located in eastern Styria and is very easy to reach via the A2 from Vienna (approx. 2 hrs) and Graz from Graz (approx. 30 min). Arrival from Vienna and Graz: On the A2 from Vienna, take motorway exit 161/ Gleisdorf West in the direction of the B 54/B64. Follow the B65 / Gleisdorf federal road until you reach the B54 / Wechselbundesstraße. At the roundabout take the second exit to the B64 / Rechberg-Bundesstraße. After about 15 km you will reach the district capital Weiz.

Arriving from Graz via the main road: take Kaiser-Franz-Josef-Kai and Wickenburggasse to Jahngasse / B67a. Follow the B72 to Weiz and take the exit towards Weiz-West.

  • From the main square in Weiz we reach the Weizberg and on to the castle tavern in Thannhausen.
  • The Franziskusweg ("root and dew symbol") first leads over the Büchlberg to Trennstein to the milk collection point at the Hirzer homestead (no. 25).
  • Here the trail branches off to the right and we reach the Grubbründl Chapel via meadow and forest paths and continue via Trog and the Bründlberg to Anger.
