We start the tour in the Kurpark Bad Gams at the overview board and opposite the former municipal office. From here we follow the trail marker 26 and turn left towards the Kurhotel Kipper. At the Kurhotel Kipper
we find something quite unusual - a drinking hall. Here we can taste three different medicinal springs. We find detailed information about the healing springs right there. Strengthened and full of energy, we continue our walk. We follow the soothing ripples of the torrent. At the transformer station we turn left until we reach the village of Furth. Here our first pleasure stop awaits us, the Farmer Rabensteiner oil mill
. In the Farmer Rabensteiner family's world of enjoyment, we can not only learn a lot of interesting facts about the black gold of Styria, pumpkin seed oil, but also be fascinated by the diversity of the farm-gate sale. Definitely worth a break.
Our path leads us further along the village street to the Strunz weaving mill. In this weaving mill, modern carpets have been designed and also made to measure for 50 years using traditional handicraft techniques. If you book in advance, you can take a closer look at the workshop and you will be introduced to the art of weaving. Very interesting and recommendable.
Our hike takes us to the next village, Gersdorf. Our path climbs slightly through the fragrant mixed forest. Arriving at the hill, we follow a paved road for about 200 m until we can enter the cool forest again.
Our next highlight on this hike is also an absolute resting place. The fairytale lake welcomes us with its mystical atmosphere and some places to sit. Sit down, enjoy the peace and observe the carp and tench in their home. The Märchensee is filled by groundwater from the adjacent slopes and by natural precipitation and offers a unique natural spectacle at any time of year. That's why the locals like to call it Heavenly Pond - a truly beautiful name for this place.
Through the tranquillity of the forest, we return to a paved road towards Rassach. From afar, we are greeted by the cute alpacas of the Alpaca Ranch En Colores. This ranch also has a farm sale for all alpaca wool products. If you book in advance, you can also take part in a tour of the farm. Shortly before you reach the houses in Rassach, you have to climb a small hill and you are then directly on the B76. The village of Rassach is known for its many small shops with rural arts and crafts.
"In Rassach, the restaurant "Das Ursprung" invites you to a fine dining menu. Our path follows the B76 in the direction of Stainz. Here you can take a break at the Wia'z Haus Putzer. Our last pleasure stop on our way is the Steinbauer family's farm distillery on their fruit farm. 80 tempting apple varieties are grown and processed here.
Following marker 26, we turn left to the houses of the Hart district. Our path leads us through the mixed forest to a crossroads in the middle of the forest. Here we meet the Bad Gams-Vochera connecting road. The path leads to the left past the Horvarth agricultural machinery shop and then immediately to the right towards the centre of Bad Gams. Back at the starting point, today's hike ends on forest and meadow paths.
