The hike starts in Vorau at the Griesplatz. This is the center of the market town with several stores, cafes and inns in the area. A short walk up to Vorau Abbey, the outdoor swimming pool or the town hall also invite you to explore the market town.  Especially the Augustinian canons' monastery Vorau convinces with a very special flair, during guided tours you can discover the impressive library and the sacristy. For families, a visit to the Urkraft Arena is especially recommended, here you can let off steam as you please.

The Village path itself leads along short stretches of road, through forests and across meadows to wonderful vantage points and back to Griesplatz, the center of Vorau.

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.
