The Marterlweg in the municipality of Kammern im Liesingtal, Styria, is extremely interesting from both a scenic and a cultural point of view.

Each wayside shrine tells its own story and is usually located along the path or on private property. The wayside shrines are lovingly tended by their owners throughout the year.

Route 2 (blue) is a challenging stage and leads along the Panormaweg (the Panorama Trail is a forest trail) with magnificent views of the lower Liesing Valley. It passes by the Urlichskirche Seiz as well as the largest Marterl, the Anna Chapel (31), with strong roots in Kammerner's history and distinct historical association life.

On the route there is also a drinking fountain directly at the Rüsthaus in Seiz, under the Ulrichskirche (25).

Author’s recommendation

Travelling to Kammern by train or by bike (Rastlandradweg R15) is the environmentally friendly and stress-free alternative to travelling by car.

Turn-by-turn directions

Under the title "Marterlweg", we find a 52-kilometre-long hiking trail that leads past 48 wayside shrines, crosses and wayside shrines and is divided into 4 individual tours.

Each of the wayside shrines tells its own story and is usually located at the edge of the path or on private property. The wayside shrines are lovingly cared for by their owners all year round.

Route 2 (blue) is a challenging stage and leads along the Panormaweg (the Panorama Trail is a forest trail) with magnificent views of the lower Liesing Valley. It passes by the Urlichskirche Seiz as well as the largest Marterl, the Anna Chapel (31), with strong roots in Kammern's history and its distinct historical association life.

From the market square, you can already see the first wayside shrine hidden on the ascent of the Kalvarienbergweg on the house wall (14). Via the Kalvarienbergweg past the war memorial (16) on the Kalvarienbergweg, which invites you to a beautiful view into the centre of Kammern, you continue towards Thorman-Etz (20). Here there is a wonderful view into the lower Liesing valley towards Traboch. Continue along the path, past green meadows, through Dirnsdorf - another district of Kammern - and then leisurely down towards Seiz. When you reach the B113 main road, turn left in the direction of Rüsthaus Seiz. There is also a drinking fountain here and you can refill your water supply.

A detailed description of the wayside shrines/crosses can be found in the Marterlweg map, which is also available online or can be taken free of charge at the market square.

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 including blister plasters belongs in every rucksack and it is always advisable to put on different layers of clothing.
