The extensive circular hike leads from Vorau Abbey down to the Brühl and leads up to the Erzherzog Johann Höhe and back again via the Amtmann Höhe. The viewing platform on the Erzherzog Johann Höhe invites you to linger. The platform offers a resting place and a telescope, for a wonderful panoramic view. The leisurely hiking tour runs mostly on well paved forest and forest paths.

Author’s recommendation

Visit the only Styrian canonical monastery in Vorau. Here you will also find the world-famous library.

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.

Emergency equipment (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!

Do not forget a blister plaster just in case!
