The Cyrillusweg Trail follows the Europa-Besinnungsweg Meditation Path to the St. Cyrillus-Kirchlein Church. The eight meditation stops were established in order to commemorate the Christian saints and Christianity in Europe.

Author’s recommendation

The small church commemorating St. Cyrill lies perched on a solitary hill in the forest. The frescoes on the outer facade and inside are particularly noteworthy.
