From Leutschach, the route first heads north, slightly uphill out of town, and then along the Eichbergbach stream towards Kreuzberg, where one of the most beautiful lookout points in the region is located. A short detour to the lookout point, which is not directly on the route, is definitely worthwhile. Just before the lookout point, in the area of the Reitermacher settlement, our hiking trail turns to the right in an easterly direction and soon reaches the Adam and Adam-Lieleg wineries. Here we keep to the left to continue north through pleasantly shaded woods and reach wineries such as that of Peter Skoff, the Trabos family or that of Hannes Sabathi, which lies only a few meters off the tour.
With a view of these beautifully situated vineyards and wineries, which invite you to stop and taste, our hike leads over the Sauberg towards Schönegg. At the end of the settlement, just before Rettenbach, we keep to the left to tackle a last, but very easy, ascent to the Seggauberg. On this beautiful hill to the west of the wine town of Leibnitz, you will find the Frauenberg Temple Museum, which is dedicated to the sanctuaries of the mountain and gives us an insight into over 6,500 years of settlement history in Styria. Just a short distance further on, Seggau Castle awaits us on the left, which houses a hotel as well as a beautiful wine cellar. The bishop's wine cellar, which is over 300 years old, is one of the oldest and largest in the country.
Our descent takes place along a fairly leisurely path that leads directly to Leibnitz with its charming main square just before the castle.
