Destination

Maria Neustift/church

Turn-by-turn directions

From the church square in Maria Neustift, the E31 leads up the Freithofberg. At the beginning, the hiking trail runs up the mountain on an asphalt road. It continues over a meadow ridge, then on a gravel path, over a meadow and through a short section of forest. Even during the hike and when you arrive at your destination, you are rewarded with magnificent panoramas.

Variants:

  • Freithofberg circular route from the church square to the Weger farmhouse, the route is on asphalt and from there the mountain is circled on the left, past the turn-off to Konradsheim, at the Moosgraben fire station. After a short stretch on the main road, you leave it on the right, walk past some farmhouses and soon have the pilgrimage church of Maria Neustift in view again.
  • Panorama trail Freithofberg on the asphalt road to the Krendlberg farmhouse and from there on the gravel road and hiking trail to the Freithofbergalm.
