The hiking trail through the Heiligengeistklamm takes you from the starting point at on the Wine Road (southern Styria, Austria) through the Spitzmühle [a mill] to the church of Sveti Duh na Ostrem Vrhu / Holy Ghost at Osterberg in Selnica ob Dravi in Slovenia. In the immediate vicinity of the Spitzmühle in Schlossberg (a show water mill reconstructed according to old plans) is the entry to the gorge, which is also one of the lowest points of the hike at 390 m.

In total, a good 500 metres of altitude is overcome over about 4 km on the way to the church of Sveti Duh.
