From the Weinebene with the Gösler Hut (Tel. +43 664 3024510), this stage of the hiking route "From Glacier to Wine" first goes over the Moserkogel and the Glashüttenkogel. There we keep to the right to hike past the two crossroads at Brendeltaferl and Mörtlkreuz in the direction of Trahütten. The path continues through a pleasantly shady forest to Trahütten. Off the road, a small path leads us to this small, romantically situated village above Deutschlandsberg.
In Trahütten we hike past the Villa Alban Berg, where we keep to the right immediately afterwards to reach the Jägersteig on trail no. 14. This also leads us directly to Deutschlandsberg Castle, where we also encounter the Natura 2000 Europe protected area Deutschlandsberger Klause. In the immediate vicinity of the castle we find several wine taverns, which not only invite us to stop for refreshments, but also, like the Stöcklpeter, to spend the night in one of the winegrowers' rooms. Now it becomes clear to us: We have arrived in wine country, because where there are wine taverns, there is also a wine route - in this case the Schilcher Wine Route. But also the historic center of Deutschlandsberg with its beautiful houses and narrow streets invites us to stroll and linger before we continue on our long-distance hiking trail the next day. Or perhaps we will add one or more days to explore the Schilcher capital and its surroundings. There would be enough occasions before we continue on the next stage to Schwanberg.

EquipmentProper backpack packing makes many things easier: Pack heavy things first. The water bottle should always be within reach in a side pocket. All the things that are often needed, such as sunglasses, camera or hiking map, belong on top. An emergency kit, including blister plasters, belongs in every rucksack and it is always advisable to dress in layers.
