Tour information

WaiWi Stage 1 "comfortable": Waidring - Pillersee - St. Jakob in Haus

For those who want to start cosily, a "comfortable" stage at the beginning! 

The first section is the same as in Stage 1. It leads from Waidring to the Hausberg mountain, the Weißbach canyon towards Oberweißbach. The Alpengasthof (restaurant) invites for a fist stop with a magnificent view to the Steinplatte mountain range. Then the path leads towards Rechensau chapel, where one takes the track to St. Adolari am Pillersee. The Gothic, small pilgrimage church is dedicated to Saint Adolar and goes back to the year 1407th. The traditional Gasthof St. Adolari invites to enjoy its Tyrolean cuisine! Cross the street and continue in the direction of Pillersee. The outlets of the lake can be seen from here, the whole splendor of our "eponym" reveals itself after a few minutes. The Pillersee shines green and with its great colour it reveals the rather "modest" water temperatures even in midsummer. Without getting wet it can be admired from a paddle boat or the small floating stage. The path continues towards the south. On the other side of the lake stands the church of St. Ulrich am Pillersee and on the Buchensteinwand you catch a sight of the Jokboskreuz for the first time. From the district Schwendt the route runs the same way as in stage 1.
