Winter hikes along the illuminated Bachweg in Forstau

The illuminated Bachweg

From approximately 15 December, the romantic "Bachweg" is lit up daily all winter long (from nightfall until 10:30 p.m.). The path leads from the town center of Forstau to the Lourdes Chapel, across the bridge next to the sawmill, along the road to the Bachweg, then along the romantic Bachweg as far as the Rohrmoser memorial plaque (former mine building) – which is where the illuminations stop. (Distance: ca. 2 km)
If you wish, you can hike farther to Jugendgästehaus Dachsteinblick, briefly along the road, then return via Himmelreichweg back to the town center of Forstau. (Total distance of the entire tour: ca. 5 km)
