Tour information

The circular hike in the beautiful pilgrimage town of Mariastein starts at the Hotel Mariasteinerhof and leads in a south-westerly direction through the forest to a fork in the path. On the right hand side, the trail goes downhill through a beautiful, quite steep section along the forest path to the Schneerosental valley. Cross the main road and pass the Hotel Schlossblick (refreshment stop) and walk north - always keeping the Buchacker in view.
At the next fork, the winter hike leads right along the mountainside, past farms and a chapel back to the starting point. The pilgrimage church of Mariastein is a constant companion on this enchanting hike. 
150 steps have to be conquered to reach the church room at the top of the tower. The castle with its 42 m high keep once served to secure the old Roman road. The residential tower (42 m), which stands on a rock and dates from the 14th century, became a place of pilgrimage in the 18th century after a miracle of the Virgin Mary. 
The Hotel Mariastein then also offers well-deserved refreshments at the end of the hike.
