- Suitable for families
- culturally interesting
On the way to the pilgrimage site to St. Sebald, visible from afar, high above Gaflenz
Quality of experience: ****
- Family friendly
- Cultural/historical value
- Botanical highlights
Actually a relatively short but very rewarding hike to the natur.bank, after the first car park is already very high up.
Coming from the car park, the nature trail leads partly on forest paths and partly on the access road to the Heiligenstein. The nature bench stands on the highest elevation of the trail and offers a magnificent view of the Lindau wall.
The hike up the Heiligenstein not only offers a magnificent view of Gaflenz and the peaks of the Almkogel, the Bodenwies, the Gesäuseberge and the Haller Mauern, but also leads to a traditional place of pilgrimage, the Sebalduskirche.
