The great industrialist Arthur Krupp (1856 - 1938, Berndorfer Metallwarenwerk) was the lord of the hunt in the Walstern from 1894 to 1938. The Walstern Valley owes its high cultural and scenic value and fame to him. He had some important buildings and monuments erected, e.g. Emperor Franz Josef statue, Christophorus picture, Morzin fountain, Tyrolean cross, the Walstern power station (Krupp'sche Klause), Margaret statue in memory of Krupp's wife, Bülow memorial stone, Hubertus chapel, Antonius column, Czedik monument and many more.

EquipmentProper 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 including blister plaster belongs in every backpack and a clothing according to the "onion system" is always recommended!
