Tip/Fun-Fact: Dry grasslands are habitats which are especially worthy of protection. The association “Freunde der Perchtoldsdorfer Heide” (Friends of Perchtoldsdorger Heide) ensure their preservation. They are assisted by the sheep of Sonnleitner organic farm, who graze in the grasslands.

Safety information

Trotz sorgfältigster Recherche kann es bei den Strecken zu unvorhergesehenen kurz-, mittel- oder gar längerfristigen Sperren (z.B. wegen forstlicher Sperrgebiete durch Grundbesitzer) kommen. Von uns empfohlene Parkmöglichkeiten können teils privat oder gebührenpflichtig sein – bitte auf die Beschilderung vor Ort achten. Manche Wege können abschnittsweise oder zur Gänze durch gebührenpflichtige Betriebe/Gebiete führen (z.B. Naturparke oder Klammen). Darauf wird aber in der Regel explizit in der Beschreibung hingewiesen. Alle Angaben erfolgen ohne Gewähr und die Benützung der Wege erfolgt auf eigene Gefahr. Etwaige Wegesperren sowie Hinweise von Jagd- und Grundbesitzer sind zu beachten.

Destination

Parking Perchtoldsdorfer Heide

Turn-by-turn directions

We will start in the car park at Perchtoldsdorfer Heide and go straight on until we reach a T-junction. We will then bear left, and then right, and follow the blue route. At the next intersection, we will take a short detour to see the ruins of Kammerstein Castle. Back on the main route, we will follow the main route to the Franz-Ferdinand-Hütte inn, before heading along the red/purple hiking route to an intersection. Here we will bear left and take the lower path in the direction of Kaltenleutgeben. We will continue along Kaltenleutgebner Strasse to the Wiener Hütte inn. From there, we will enter the forest and bear right, following the blue route, before bearing left at the school sports field, and turning left soon after that. Passing the church, we will head down Willergasse, cross the railway line, and turn right onto Waldmühlgasse. At the fork in the road, we will bear left and head back to the Perchtoldsdorfer Heide nature reserve.
