In addition to the cities mentioned above, the small town of Stanz in the Mürztal valley has also made a name for itself as an innovation center.
Whether it is the new village store with regional specialties, the wind turbines, the Stanzer E Mobil, the creation of a new village center with a correspondingly modern energy supply or even just the idea of the "Mitfahrbankerl" - the village at the foot of Stanglalm and Teufelstein is very active.
But in addition to all these innovative ideas, the tradition of the community, which was first mentioned in 1150, is not neglected. And so this time we hike to the traditional roast pork on the autumnal Stanglalm.

EquipmentProper backpacking makes a lot of things easier:
Pack heavy things first. The water bottle (ideally: 1 liter or more) should always be within easy reach. All things that are often needed such as sunglasses, camera, cell phone or hiking map belong on top.
An emergency equipment including blister plaster belongs in every backpack and a clothing according to the "onion system" is always recommended! Never forget rain protection on alpine tours!
In winter, when ski touring and snowshoeing, appropriate safety equipment (avalanche transceiver, avalanche shovel and probe) is mandatory! Before the tour always call up the avalanche situation report (www.lawine-steiermark.at).
