Turn-by-turn directions

The route follows the regional road, passing by the Gasthof Simeter on Mount Wolfsberg (754 m) and the church of St. Wolfgang (15th c.). Continue on a lovely path through the wood, past the mystical Opferstein stone, to Lake Egelsee
nature reserve, which is an important wet zone. A dip in its waters has beneficial effects on the skin and joints.
