Loop to the smaller monuments of Spital am Pyhrn. On this path, you will come across the old scythe makers’ guild, which was important for the economic and cultural development of our valley.

This hiking tour begins with a visit to the former Baroque abbey church of Spital am Pyhrn, the “Cathedral on the Pyhrn”.

Afterwards, you will exit the abbey through the abbey’s inner courtyard and head left at the parking lot then right to the abbey pond and onto the Anzwiesenallee. At the end of the lane, you will make a right over the bridge and continue to the left of the road.

After ca. 250 m, you will come to the pillar of Mary on the right side.
The pillar of Mary was donated in 1727 by the couple who owned the scythe-making works, Georg and Susanna Clara Hirzenberger.

You will now continue along the road past the transformer station and come to the five linden trees. They are hard to overlook: on the left side of the road, the five linden trees stand alone, and underneath them is a pillar altar built in 1845.

Continue following the street, and past the Edthofer cross, you will reach the Schlagedl. Across from Ferienhof Schlagedl is the wayside chapel restored in 1985, the so-called Schlagedl chapel. This is where 35 farmers were supposedly buried during the Thirty Years’ War.

Now, take the road behind you towards the Gleinkersee, under the autobahn, and left up to the intersection. At this crossing, you will head in the direction of Roßleithen, and you will come to the Erler chapel. This chapel, built in 1834, is also called the Pyhrnerkogel chapel.

Now, instead of hiking downhill on the road to Roßleithen, you will go right to Ferienhof Pyhrnerkogel. Hike along this road to its end and then continue on the farm road until you come to the street again, which you will follow straight to the Seebachhof bus stop. Here, you will find the Reitbauern chapel, built shortly before 1860.

Make a right on the main road, past the saw mill and the bridge, but before the autobahn bridge, go right to the end of the street and follow the country path alongside the brook. Once you come to the road again, turn left and then left again under the autobahn and right towards DANA.

At the next farm is the “Tischler in der Au” wayside altar. You will now continue to the DANA door factory. Go left directly in front of this and at the end of the factory make a right, then follow the road via Garstner Eck to the railway underpass. Turn right through the underpass and then right again. After ca. 500 m, you come to the main road and will head right towards Spital am Pyhrn.

Shortly afterwards, you will find the Hufeisen chapel on the main road. If you keep going, you will shortly come to Hofbauer chapel across from Gasthaus Grundner.

Now you will go alongside highway 138 to the town center of Spital am Pyhrn and back to your starting point.

Vis-à-vis users

1. The tours presented for hiking, walking, biking and road biking, mountain biking, motorbiking, horseback riding, climbing, cross-country skiing, and going on skiing and snowshoe tours etc. are to be considered non-paid tour recommendations and only serve as non-binding information. We have no intention of concluding a contract with the users of this website. The utilisation of the data does not lead to the establishment of a contract with us.


The data may only be used for private use; any commercial use is prohibited. In particular, it is not permissible to offer the data on commercially run websites, file-sharing platforms etc. or to use it to develop commercial products. Downloading data does not imply that users are granted rights to the data concerned.


The tour recommendations posted were created with utmost care; nevertheless, we assume no liability for the correctness and completeness of the information.


We point out that neither the tour recommendations included on this website nor the associated data and information were posted by us, but rather by third parties (Art. 16 Austrian E-Commerce Act). We have no influence on whether the details provided (e.g. distance, level of difficulty, change in altitude, description etc.) are authentic, correct and complete. We do not review these third-party contents. For this reason, we assume no liability for the authenticity, correctness and completeness of the information.


Construction-related measures or other influences (e.g. landslides and similar occurrences) can lead to temporary or permanent changes in a route (e.g. loss of a bridge and similar occurrences). Such occurrences can lead to part of the route or the entire route becoming impassable.


The use of the data as well as undertaking (riding, walking, taking etc.) the recommended tours or using the network of paths occurs at users’ own risk and on their authority. In particular, users themselves are responsible for the choice of route, outdoor orientation, adherence to traffic rules, supplies and equipment for tours listed in Point 1 (e.g. bicycle etc.), wearing a helmet, estimating their own fitness, recognising dangers and maintaining an appropriate velocity. We exclude ourselves from any liability whatsoever for damages, in particular accidents, that occur whilst taking part in the recommended tours.


2.Some of the tours lead over roads with normal traffic conditions. Please observe that there is an increased risk which can be avoided by means of appropriate attention and proper estimation and implementation of one’s own abilities. For this reason, please travel a route that is unfamiliar to you slowly and with special care. Pay constant attention to potential dangers and always observe traffic. Do not leave the routes featured in descriptions.


The potential use of private roads, in particular forestry roads and agricultural transport roads, can be subject to legal restrictions, which must be observed and adhered to.


The normal traffic rules apply. Each user (e.g. biker, motorbiker) is responsible for adhering to these rules and maintaining his/her bike/vehicle and its equipment (lights, brakes etc.) in good working order. Each user is also responsible for ensuring that he/she rides at a velocity that is appropriate for the conditions and his/her skill level and for maintaining sufficient distance to the rider in front. We explicitly recommend adjusting velocity to correspond to the respective field of vision, wearing a helmet, using reflective clothing (or similar) and employing bicycle lights in line with regulations.


3.Each tour requires good physical fitness as well as detailed planning. We explicitly recommend only taking the tours in the case of optimal healthiness.


We recommend that you conclude an accident and liability insurance policy. Use an onboard computer that displays the respective kilometres travelled per day and is calibrated for the front wheel.


4.Special for mountain bikers – Fair-play rules:


Mountain biking is one of the most wonderful outdoor leisure-time activities. Whilst biking or on a mountain biking tour, mountains and lakes, meadows and cabins are re-discovered in new ways. A couple of rules for fair play in the forest help to avoid conflicts whilst mountain biking.


a.Pedestrians have the right of way: We are accommodating and friendly to pedestrians and hikers. Upon encountering these fellow travellers, we alert them by using the bicycle bell and slowly overtake them. We avoid paths with heavy pedestrian traffic altogether. Take nature into account: We do not leave refuse behind.

b.The braking distance should be half of the total distance visible: We ride at a controlled pace, are ready to brake and maintain a braking distance half as long as the total distance visible, especially in curves, because we always have to count on obstacles on the path. Damage to the path, stones, branches, wood piles, grazing livestock, cattle grids, barriers, tractor-type forestry machines and authorised vehicles pose dangers that we need to be ready for.

c.Don’t drink and drive!: Do not drink alcohol when mountain biking. Take care at stop-off points (dealing with bike racks, dirty shoes or clothing).

It is obligatory to provide first aid!

d.Marked routes, closed paths and blockades: Keep to the marked routes, observe the blockades and accept that these roads are primarily for agricultural and forestry use!

Blockades can often not be avoided and are in your own interest. Biking beyond the intended path and outside of opening times is punishable and turns us into illegal bikers.

e.We are guests in the forest and behave accordingly, including vis-à-vis forestry and hunting staff. Whilst mountain biking, mobile telephones and music players are forbidden! Biking requires your full attention.

f.Avoid unnecessary noise. Out of consideration to the animals living in the wild, we only bike during full daylight. As a principle, we always wear our helmet (even when riding uphill)! Don’t forget emergency supplies: We always have a repair set and bandages along.

g.Don’t overestimate your skills: We should not overdo it when it comes to biking technique and physical fitness. Take the level of difficulty posed by the route into consideration and make a precise estimate of your experience and skills as a biker (braking, bell, lights)!

h.Close gates: We approach grazing livestock at a walking pace and close every gate behind us. We should avoid causing escape and panic reactions in the animals. Nothing stands in the way of the fun and athletic challenge in the mountains and forests!

i.Traffic rules: The general traffic rules (StVO) apply for all the mountain biking routes and we adhere to them. Our bike therefore needs to be in perfect technical condition and equipped in line with the traffic rules, including brakes, a bell and lights. We inspect and service our mountain bikes regularly anyway.
