Trail of reflection (Weg der Besinnung)

Open
The geomantic places along the trail invite you to recharge your batteries and spend time. Let's take the time and feel the energy along the path of reflection!
"The path of reflection leads us over the Kapfensteiner Kogel, into a wonderful landscape in the heart of the volcanic country of southeastern Styria. Selected places invite you to experience the diversity of nature and culture in their visible but also invisible qualities."

STATIONS along the way:
1.Hoher Stein - Flowing, the power of the earth rises and fills the space full of vitality.
2.Marienbründl - The source leads us to the origin of life.
3.Josefsbild - With the vastness opens the lightness of being.
4.Place of Fire - The inner fire inspires the spirit.
5.Sacred Heart Chapel - We encounter the essential with the heart.
6.Vital center - Everything is connected with everything.
7.Place of dance - Movement and rhythm carry life.
8.St. Nicholas Parish Church - The encounter with God is also an encounter with the landscape and with ourselves.
9.Place at the church - Communication promotes mutual understanding.

Nine geomantic places around the Kapfensteiner Kogel invite you to perceive the special qualities of energy resting places and the power of nature. Starting from the Kapfensteinerhof inn, this contemplation trail leads you on partly narrow paths through steep terrain and invites you to trace the four elements enjoy the charming atmosphere around the Herz-Jesu chapel, hike to the highest point of the Kapfensteiner Kogel and finally relax under a pear tree in front of the church.
