Turn-by-turn directions

At the sports area in Laion (1,085m) route no. 5 offers a lovely walk descending slightly northwards through meadows to Albions (857 m, refreshments served). Turnig south, follow the road to Hof Mair am Bach farm and there, take the signposted field path (Vogelweider Rundweg signs - trail is also called "Eselsteig" trail). Starting off in fields, the trail continues for a longer stretch through forest parhts, then you will reach the hamlet of Novale (740 m, Törggele tavern open in autumn ) with St. Katharina church and the Vogelweider Hof farm (810m). Now follow route no. 35, witch ascends alongside the farmsteads on the sunny slopes, after crossing an asphalt road, and then leads to Laion.
