Already in the early 19th century, Archduke Johann discovered the magic of the Ausseerland for himself and vividly described it in his "autograph notes" ("Der Brandhofer und seine Hausfrau") in 1810:

The Archduke had his chamber painters Jakob Alt, Jakob Gauermann and Matthäus Loder capture the beauty of this landscape and striking incidents during his multiple stays in many watercolors and drawings.These artists were followed by countless others in the following decades up to the present day: Not only painters and sculptors, musicians and composers, but above all poets and writers, but also scientists and scholars.

Following the same road you find station III at the hotel "Hotel Seevilla".

From the hotel leads the path passing the tennis courts along the lake, called "Brahms-Weg", in direction to the church. From the church follow the promenade around the lake, which is called "Adrian-Werburg-Promenade", until you reach station IV.

 

Station IV to station V:

1.500 meters, about 45 minutes

After station number IV you have to carry on this promenade passing the restaurant "Kalßeneck" until a turn to the left. This path leads to the path "Arneth-Weg" in the forest. In particular for this part of the route firm footwear is recommended. After about 1500 meters you will reach station V dedicated to "Christl Kerry".

Before there is a turn to a place called "Kleiner Künstlerblick" at the chaple "Kalvarienbergkapelle" and leads after 100 meters again at the church back to the park.

The other version leads you above the chaple through the forest and than along the edge of the wood to station number 5. After this station the road takes you back to the park passing houses and country residences of the area "Posern" back to the starting point.

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. An emergency kit including blister plaster belongs in every backpack and a clothing according to the "onion system" is always recommended!
