A beautiful walk through the market Vorau, which has a lot to offer for culture enthusiasts due to the two churches (Market Church and Cross Church).

The path leads through the beautiful market Vorau, along the sidewalk, past many benches, Materln and the unique Kreuzkirche. This pilgrimage trail is also recommended in winter.

Interesting to know: Vorau had 330 years the right and duty to be "blood plaintiff" and "blood judge" for intentional committed major crimes - remains of the gallows from this time can still be seen!

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!
