Open
This short variant of the 2 different route lengths is ideal for those who want to experience and learn about the history and stories of the region in a "short way".
The wayside crosses, shrines and chapels line this scenic path. Between vineyards you have time to enjoy the most beautiful view over the district of Stein on a suspended lounger.

Detailed information on how to get there can be found here.

Entrance vis á vis Hotel Stoiser into the forest. Initially forest path past the Leberkegeln (Roman tumuli from the 1st and 2nd century AD), then alternately over forest paths and hardly traveled municipal roads. The shorter route takes you along vineyards to the village of Stein and then rejoins the longer route in Kleinsteinberg. The longer route leads in ridge position finally to the Kögelberg (with 405 m highest point of the former district Fürstenfeld). Both routes take you from the Oberberg down to the village of Bad Loipersdorf. Then continue in the direction of Rehgraben and via the forest path back to the spa. An experience!
In addition to the interesting crossroads descriptions, the tour is also very scenic. For a long time, the route takes you along a ridge with beautiful views of the rolling hills of the thermal region.
