With the alpannonia circular trail in the Joglland - Waldheimat region in eastern Styria, various feeders of the long-distance hiking trail can be connected. This creates a beautiful tour with numerous highlights, such as the fantastic view at the Rabl-Kreuz-Hütte or the unique Vorau Abbey. On different feeder paths you hike on the tracks of the alpannonia long-distance hiking trail and thus offer an optimal way for everyone who is looking for a 2-3 day tour.

From St. Jakob im Walde to the Rabl-Kreuz hut and on to Mönichwald and Vorau, follow the yellow alpannonia marking (feeder trail). From Vorau you hike on the Barbara-Sicharter path to Wenigzell. You then reach the starting point in St. Jakob im Walde via the so-called Kraftpfad.

Author’s recommendation

Equipment

  • Proper backpacking makes many things easier: pack heavy things first. The water bottle should always be within easy reach in a side pocket. All things that are often needed, such as sunglasses, camera or hiking map, belong on top.   
  • Before the start of the hike, check the opening times for refreshment stops and pack the appropriate food.   
  • An emergency kit (incl. blister plaster) belongs in every backpack!    It is always advisable to dress according to the "onion system"!   
  • A good hiking boot is a good companion and should never be missing on the mountain!
