Route description

From Passail, the route goes along the Raab River to the old mining town of Arzberg, where you can still visit the old silver mine. Arzberg is also the home of the Almenland Stollen cheese. Here the Raab also "disappears" into the gorge and forms the Great Raab Gorge between Arzberg and Mortantsch/Weiz. Arzberg is therefore also the starting point and destination for hikes through the Raabklamm.

Immediately after leaving Arzberg, you will pass the Stubegg ruins, which unfortunately can no longer be visited today. The village of Burgstall or the Burgstaller Höhe lies idyllically between the Raabklamm and the Schöckl and offers wonderful views of the Passailer Kessel. The rest of the way leads in a southerly direction - always with a view of the Schöckl.

On the way back you pass a few inns, especially the "Bachwirt" in Wölling is a good place to stop for a bite to eat before heading back to Passail via the golf course.

This tour has a nice incline and is therefore only recommended for sporty cyclists or e-bike owners!
