The tour

From the starting point, we will follow the path into the forest. Keeping left at the clearance, we will once again go through the beautiful mixed forest. Afterwards, we will cross the street and keep following the path until we go past Matzling. We will have reached the village’s last houses after walking a few metres along the road. There, will follow path no. M1 or M4 west into the forest again until reaching the next settlement. After passing the houses, we will head to the left towards the edge of the forest and follow path no. M1 or M5 down to Tipschern. Now comes the tour’s steepest climb - up towards the mountain and onwards to Pürcherhof. From there, we will continue to Gersdorf, Dorf and Kaindorf, cross the town centre, and proceed west back to the starting point.
