On this path, one learns interesting information about Barbara Sicharter, the founder of the order of St. Mary's Hospital Vorau. On the information boards along the way at the rest stops, selected Bible passages are designated, which invite you to reflect, linger and enjoy.The starting point of this trail is also well worth seeing: the Augustinian canons' monastery in Vorau is the only canons' monastery still active in Styria. Vorau Abbey delights visitors especially with its unique library and sacristy. This is also where the trail starts, also the first marking of the Barbara Sicharter Trail: yellow panels with inscription can be found here.Once you arrive in Wenigzell, there are numerous places to stop for refreshments. Widely known, for example, are the giant buns from the Buchtelbar.

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!
