Tour information

We start this hiking tour at the tourist information office in Hopfgarten. We walk left across the lift parking lot and downhill towards the pedestrian underpass. Then we turn left and walk past the old leather factory and continue along the main road for a short bit before we cross the bridge Steger Brücke on the right. We turn left after the bridge and follow the road to Kelchsau for about 300 m. Then we turn left and cross the bridge” Elsbethenbrücke”. Directly after the bridge we turn right and walk along the river for about 500 m. Then we turn left and follow the sign directing us to” Elsbethen Kirche”. 
Now the route leads us past the farm house ”Unterrain” and Elsbethen Chapel through a part of the district “Elsbethen” to the cross-roads “Glantersberg” and “Gruberberg”. We take the road towards “Gruberberg” which leads us straight ahead uphill. From now on we keep following the sign “Lend” for about 1,2 km. At the first crossing we turn left and walk in the direction of Lend until we get to a junction right above the farmstead “Oberau”. From there we follow the sign “KAT Walk Winter”. From here the path leads downhill again. Follow the cleared road for about 2 km. Once in the valley, cross the bridge and after about 40 metres out of the valley, at Lendwirt, turn right onto the road towards Westendorf. This takes you about 80 metres in altitude uphill through the snow-covered winter forest
When you reach the plateau of Westendorf, you walk past the golf course, the Waldhäusl chapel and the Windau Lounge towards the village center.
The destination, the Hotel Post, is on the left, about 50 m after the church.
