Well fortified and in a good mood, you continue along the Hohenfeld. As the name suggests, it is a leisurely section of the tour and you have the opportunity to enjoy the magnificent view over the Schilcherland. In every season, this special region has its own charm. But when the vine blossoms in spring or the Schilcher grapevines shine in colourful hues in autumn, you know you have chosen the right season for your tour.
After about 650 metres, the trail continues in the forest, which provides the necessary cooling, especially on hot summer days. The next two kilometres on your hike take you past typical farmhouses with their beautiful balcony flowers, which make a great photo motif.
Via Greim and the Siggerigraben you hike back to Bad Gams. Take the opportunity to stop at one of the typical wine taverns (Buschenschank) to chat about the wonderful hike over a glass of Schilcher and a hearty snack.
The unique experiences on this day will remind you of this excursion many times and make you want to return soon.
