7 Bacherl Weg- "Over 7 bridges you must go..."

Open
"Over 7 bridges you must go..."

The 7-Bacherl-Weg takes you at the beginning along the rushing Feistritz into the picturesque Freienberger Klamm. Afterwards, the trail leads through beech forests along an ancient cart path up to the majestic towering Neuhaus Castle. The effort of the climb is rewarded with a magnificent view.

The hike first begins comfortably through the Freienberger Klamm gorge to the power plant. Here you cross the main road and from now on it's uphill. You cross on this charming, beautiful hiking trail to do justice to the name of course also 7 Bacherl.
