Wildwiesen round, Miesenbach

Enjoy the panoramic view of the Joglland-Waldheimat region from the 36 m high Wildwiesenwarte at cloud level, so to speak.
The Wildwiesenwarte is the "landmark" of Miesenbach, the power donor village. The hike to the Wildwiese, one of the most beautiful pleasure spots in Styria, never ceases to amaze: whether it's the mighty lime tree with its girth, the elaborate replica of the Waldhauser chapel as a photo motif or the Jägersteig trail in the direction of Floisenkogel. A stop at the Wildwiesenhütte, for example on "Hüttenschnitzel Monday", rounds off the tour before returning to the village.

  • We start right in the center of Miesenbach and follow the signposts in the direction of Kreuzwirt (trail no. 6)

  • We keep to the right and follow trail no. 9 towards the Wildwiese viewing platform
  • Initially along the edge of the forest and further through the forest, we always walk along the wide main path to the weather cross on the Floisenkogel, 1,217 m
  • We continue slightly downhill to the signpost "Wildwiese Aussichtswarte" and soon reach the Wildwiesenwarte with the Wildwiesenhütte and the Waldhauser chapel
