This circular trail connects the springs and fountains around Heilbrunn in the Almenland Nature Park in Styria. Beautiful places invite you to reflect and enjoy the view.
The path goes back to an initiative of the local development association "herzlich begegnen, Heilbrunn- Brandlucken" and was implemented together with the Heilbrunn parish council.
Starting from the salvific well in front of the pilgrimage church, the springs and wells around Heilbrunn were connected and 13 stations were designed - for pausing and resting. Large stones mark each station, and panels provide food for thought that invite visitors to embark on an "inner journey" from which they can draw strength. The corresponding spiritual stories can be found at www.hbweg.at, and the accompanying booklet is available free of charge at the innkeepers and in the parish church.
The path is also a beautiful family hiking trail with beautifully designed rest areas and refreshment stops on the Brandlucken and at the Heilbrunn church.
