Brief description

Small circuit around the village via Unternberg, a district of St. Corona, which is accessible throughout the year and is a captivating winter landscape.

Description

The village circuit via Unternberg, a district of St. Corona, provides slow-paced walks throughout the year and is appropriate for a winter walk. Starting point of the walk is the valley station of the family area near to the Gruber-Liszt holiday house that is also available for romantic overnight stays. Whilst the children are practising their first snow sports in the winter sport school, parents could explore the surroundings of this wonderful path. The route runs over maintained roads via the chapel to the field boxes and a way up to the so-called Sonnenplatzl and back into the centre. You can manage this walk at a comfortable pace within a good half hour. You also have the opportunity for a bite to eat at the Landgasthof Fahrner on the way. You also pass many farms which offer you a ‘holiday on the farm’ for your next holiday, such as for example, the Ofnerhof, Lehnerhof or Bauernhof Dissauer.

Safety information

Make sure that your choice of route matches your hiking experience and your physical condition. Check the weather forecast. In the mountains, the weather can change surprisingly quickly. For this reason, make sure you are well-equipped.

Check that the huts and refreshment stations that you want to visit along the way will be open. Tell someone which route you have chosen, and when you hope to return, before you set off.
