Way of the Senses No. 16
A beautiful hike through vineyards and beautiful woods up to the Ratzberg and finally, after a varied route, back to the starting point at Josefiplatz.
The first people settled in our community 5000 - 6000 years ago. From the Urnfield Period (1200 BC) and from the Hallstatt Period we have mound graves in the area of "Ehrenbichl". A small castle once stood there, called "Ansitz Ehrenbichl". At the "Gerichtkogl" there was an old place of execution and an old court house. The name of the village was first mentioned historically in the 11th century. The municipal coat of arms contains the most important features of our village: the Saggau, the fertile farmland and the sign of John the Baptist, the patron saint of the church and parish as well as the eponym of our municipality.
Coming from the south, north, west and east on the A9 Phyrnautobahn - exit Leibnitz - continue towards Kaindorf/S - Heimschuh - Großklein - St. Johann im Saggautal.
The Trail of the Senses begins at Josefiplatz next to the Jauk car dealership in St. Johann im Saggautal and leads first on municipal paths through the village area and finally along vineyards and through wooded areas up to the Ratzberg. From there, you return to the starting point on municipal and forest paths with a varied route. Numerous stops and wine taverns make the route, which was set up by the Landjugend Sankt Johann im Saggautal ( www.lj-stjohann.at ), a hiking experience.
Visit the enemy distillery Stelzl.
Parking spaces are available at the starting point.
