The route leads from the center of St. Kathrein am Hauenstein via the so-called mining settlement to the Katharinenstein. According to legend, the parish patroness protected the inhabitants here from being taken over by the Turks in 1529. A footprint of St. Catherine reminds us of the appearance of the parish patroness. The water that collects there is said to have a healing effect.

Equipment

Proper backpacking makes many 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 belongs in every backpack!

A clothing according to the "onion system" is always recommended!

A good hiking boot is a good companion and should never be missing on the mountain!

Do not forget a blister plaster just in case!
