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®.

But it is also no problem if you want to start the trekking tour in the village of St. Kathrein am Hauenstein. From there the tour leads up to the Hauereck, where you can join the alpannonia trail. Also then you can call yourself an "alpannonier".

"I have seen the Cologne and Milan cathedrals and St. Peter's Church in Rome, but I have never found the sweet heavenly atmosphere as in the white, bright little church at Kathrein am Hauenstein" - this is what Peter Rosegger wrote about his favorite church in St. Kathrein am Hauenstein.This is exactly where the stage to the Hauereck starts, in the municipality of St. Kathrein am Hauenstein in Peter Rosegger's forest home. If you want to learn more about the life of the East Styrian poet, this is also the right place. In a great atmosphere in the culture house there is a permanent exhibition about Peter Rosegger.

Especially in winter St. Kathrein am Hauenstein is worth a visit, because the Christmettenweg leads from the Alpl to the village. Peter Rosegger also made his way along this path on the Holy Night to the Mette. Another winter highlight is the Hauereck ski resort. Here fun on the slopes is guaranteed for everyone.

Author’s recommendation

Visit the Peter Rosegger exhibition in St. Kathrein am Hauenstein or the favorite church of the local poet.For all long-distance hikers, the alpannonia trail also offers a 6-day tour from Fischbach to Köszeg.

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 makes a good companion and should never be missing on the mountain!
