Event information

This hike takes us along the Stations of the Cross trail to the Weeping Virgin Mary hermitage. The trail features a series of wooden sculptures that were made by the local artist Horst Pali. The hermitage is Tirol’s last occupied hermitage and has been providing shelter to Christian hermits for the last 300 years. From the hermitage we walk through meadows, forests and pastures to friendly Bacherlam. Along the way we will learn about the flora and fauna found on Niederkaiser Ridge. The dairy woman at Bacheralm is a certified herbalist. Over a cup of homemade herbal infusion she will teach us about the use of local herbs.


From Bacheralm we head down to Gasteig where we catch a cab back to St. Johann in Tirol.


Walking time: 4 h


400 m elevation gain


Difficulty: ## Suitable for beginners who are comfortable on narrow trails.
