From the UNESCO World Heritage Site Semmering or from the high altitude health resort Fischbach to the edge of the Pannonian plain near Köszeg, a path full of variety and attractions of nature leads: alpannonia®.

Of course, you can also start the alpannonia trail at various feeder communities, for example in Rettenegg. From there, the "Planet Trail" leads up to the Stuhleck, from where you can join the main trail. During the hike, the size of the universe is made tangible to the visitor. For example, the light from the sun to Saturn takes about the same amount of time as a hiker covering this distance on the Planet Trail.

alpannonia and the "Planet Trail" - two unique projects come together here.  First, you hike along the Planet Trail, which presents the celestial bodies of the solar system in size and distance to each other on a scale of billions on the 6 km long stretch between Rettnegg and the Stuhleck in models. Once you have arrived at Stuhleck, you can spend a night in the Alois Günther House and the next morning you start the alpannonia trail to Köszeg refreshed.

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 Wanderakrte, 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!
