The starting point of this hiking trail is the Josef Scharl wine farm. You start directly at the Dreibauernweg and turn right after about 80 m at the first T-junction. After about 400m you come to a juntion, where you turn right again and stay on the path. After about 180m you can turn left into the fields and walk straight ahead until you reach the large forest. There is a fork where you have to turn sharp right. If you now follow the path including the signs continuously in the forest, you can soon see the special attraction - the Brodlsulz!

Now it goes on! From the Brodlsulz, the path leads you out of the forest onto the "Plesch-Risola-Klapping Weg". At this you have to turn right and follow it until the next fork, where you turn left. After the fork, a path leads you to a crossroads where you also have to turn left. Then follow the Klappingweg and turn left again at the next junction after the Lipp'n Sepp guesthouse. After about 300m there is another crossing where you turn right again onto the "Plesch-Risola-Klapping Weg". Walk along this path, on the right side you will find the vineyard Frühwith, where you have to turn left at the next crossing. Furthermore, there are some houses on the left side, about 20m after the last house you also have to turn left into the fields. Now just follow the signs until you reach the guesthouse "Wein und Wohnen - Palz". One house further is the cheese store "Milchmädchen - Ziegenhof/Käserei", where you turn left. After about 50m you have to turn left again and then follow the path of the signposting to the starting point.

Take your time and watch the spectacle of brodlsulz!
