WEIßENBACH Kalvarienberg-Alm: Wandern für Alt und Jung in Feldbach

Under the motto "Active together" there are 8 leisurely hikes in the districts of Feldbach, which are accompanied by local hikers on fixed dates.
Accompanied joint hike
The tour is not signposted in the open countryside. Hiking is recommended with the hiking guide, with the Outdooractive app or the gpx data.
The joint hike is accompanied by Bernhard Stiasny (Tel.: 0664/9635628) and Manfred Promitzer (Tel.: 0664/5067914).
Dates: On the 4th Wednesday at 2 pm in the months of February, April, June, August, October and December (except on holidays).

What is special about guided walks?
The gentle, steady movement on the hikes focuses our attention on our immediate surroundings and shows us the treasures. Movement in nature strengthens our immune system, invigorates muscles, organs and circulation, and activates our brain. Each of the 8 hiking routes is accompanied by a person who knows the route and knows about the special features along the way and in the surrounding area. The conversations in the hiking group are an additional enrichment, according to the motto: "LIVE TOGETHER IN DIVERSITY!"

More information

Detailed information on how to get there can be found here.
The start is in the direction of the city of Feldbach, the route goes along the Alois-Gerstl-Weg, then follows the Schillerstraße to the left and turns left at the traffic circle, where it leads past the evangelic church and the LKH, to the ascent of the Kalvarienberg. Continue past the Stations of the Cross through an avenue of walnut trees to the Anna Church. There you have a panoramic view over the entire Raab Valley. Then comes the descent to the Kellerstöckl with Dursthäusl. This is followed by a leisurely hike through the forest, turn right on the gravel path and then keep left twice. In the open countryside you pass the osier willows until you reach the alpine pasture resting place with the statue of St. Francis and along the road back to the Kleinmeier inn.

Character of the path

Beautiful view from Calvary (St. Anne's Church - built around 1600), Christandl farm store, Alm rest area with St. Francis statue.

There is the possibility to follow the asphalt path to Dursthäusl instead of the Kreuzweg and thus avoid the climb.

Ample parking at the starting point.
Proper backpack packing makes many things easier: Pack heavy things first. The water bottle should always be within reach in a side pocket. All the things that are often needed, such as sunglasses, camera or hiking map, belong on top. An emergency kit, including blister plasters, belongs in every rucksack and it is always advisable to dress in layers.
