Through the winter forests of Fischbach

Closed
Wonderful snowshoe hike through the glittering forests of the Fischbach Alps.
Known in summer as the moss and fern trail, we hike here with snowshoes on mossy ground and along snow-covered ferns and herbs.

We start (here still without snowshoes) at the village square in Fischbach and walk first towards the church, past the school and on towards Birkfeld until we turn right towards Elmleiten. There, trail no. 13 - the so-called Moosweg - branches off. Here we change to our snowshoes and take a pleasant walk on mossy ground until we reach trail no. 14 - the fern path. We hike back along this path in a snow-covered forest. Then we take the country road back to the starting point in Fischbach.
Timetables and travel information can be found at Österreichische Bundesbahnen (ÖBB) or at Verkehrsauskunft Verbundlinie. For local transportation we recommend the SAM-Sammeltaxi Oststeiermark.
There are plenty of parking spaces available at our starting point - the village square in Fischbach.
