Greibrunnweg No. 12

Open
This hike leads up to the Flamberg. Along the ridge you walk along forest and municipal paths to Flamhof Castle and finally via Forst back to St. Nikolai im Sausal.
The local municipality was established as an autonomous body in 1850. After the annexation of Austria in 1938, the municipality became part of the Reichsgau Steiermark, and from 1945 to 1955 it was part of the English occupation zone in Austria. Anyone who has ever been to St. Nikolai i. S. is struck by the unique landscape. From the Flamberg, a lovely valley with gentle, picturesque hills opens up to the astonished visitor. The Celts began cultivating land and wine here thousands of years ago. Many burial mounds from this and later times bear witness to this unique history. It was the magic of this spot of earth that moved many nomadic peoples to settle here over the course of time.
