But also in winter it is wonderful to hike in the heart of the Waldheimat, as Rosegger also called his home. Not only the birthplace (hiking trail usually cleared), but also the small chapel not far from the forest school, the Lentkreuz on the way to St. Kathrein am Hauenstein or the paths from Alpl in the direction of Hauereck delight all nature lovers.

EquipmentProper backpacking makes a lot of things easier:
Pack heavy things first. The water bottle should always be within easy reach in a side pocket. All things that are often needed, such as sunglasses, camera or hiking map, belong on top. An emergency kit including blister plaster belongs in every backpack and a clothing according to the "onion system" is always recommended!
Always use good, ankle-high shoes for all hikes! In winter, snow shoes are recommended (area "Red Cross").
