Detaily pre: “Bakabu” adventure hiking trail in Hochneukirchen

Krátky opis

The circular trail with the Bakabu listening stations leads from Hochneukirchen to the Hutwischwarte and back again.


There are many listening experience stations for children and the young at heart along the route. A story for children is told over 9 stations (book & audio), in which “Bakabu” and his best friend, Charlie Gru, the clay pigeon, set off in search of the highest point in Austria’s “Bucklige Welt” – that place where the wind whistles more beautifully than anywhere else. On their way, they meet a different animal at each stop, which brings them a little closer to their goal. They learn the story of the bearded Gretel (“boardate Gretl”) and unravel the mystery of the legendary “Schimmel ohne Schädel”.

In between, recreation spots in the forest invite you to kick back and relax.

Opis trasy “Bakabu” adventure hiking trail in Hochneukirchen

The tour starts at the car park with large information board in Hochneukirchen. You can stock up on regional specialities at the information and refreshment point in the village, so that you are prepared for a rest along the way. The path is marked with birdhouses, which lead all the way to the observation point and back again.

The loop then starts via Brunnenplatz, then left via Panoramastraße and Kurzen Weg. From there, keep to the right (always following the bird houses) until you reach the “Hutwischwarte”. There you can climb steps to the platform, from where you have a 360° view of 5 different states in good weather. The newly erected rest benches are ideal for a short break. The circular trail continues opposite the observation point and leads in a beautiful sweeping curve back to the starting point in Hochneukirchen. There, the Beiglböck pastry shop awaits to satisfying even the biggest hunger.
