Description:
Starting from the Pfaffenlehen guesthouse (family Unterbuchschachner), the trail leads to the Durchlaufner Höhe. There you can decide for the shorter or the longer variant. The two trails come together again shortly before the Tichlberg chapel and after the Katzberg farmhouse, the trail goes left over a ridge of meadows down to the Pfaffenlehen campsite and back to the starting point.

Trail number: E34, E34a, E34b



Directions:
Passing the Scholler farmhouse, a narrow goods road leads to the "Schollerreit", where a resting bench invites you to linger and offers a beautiful view of the pilgrimage church of Maria Neustift. Continuing along the goods path, past the Glasnerhäusl, you reach a crossroads after about 45 minutes. The hiking trail leads to the left to the farmhouse Durchlauf and to the Durchlaufner Chapel from 1926. On a farm road you continue up to the Durchlaufner Sattel and then left to the next crossroads.

The shorter variant leads over the Arthofberg (E34a).


The longer variant swings right across a pasture to Loidlhäusl. After 100 meters of asphalt road you meet the Knappenweg, which leads up from Pechgraben (Großraming). Following the Knappenweg, you reach a saddle, which you leave at this point by turning left. Having reached the highest point of this hike (750m), a wonderful panorama over the municipal area of Maria Neustift including the village center opens up to the hiker.


Passing the Dichlberg farmhouse, you will once again encounter the short variant of the hiking trail.


Keep to the right and continue downhill on the asphalt road to the Dichlberg chapel, whose history of origins can be read inside.


The road in the direction of the Katzberg farmhouse is partially blasted out of the rock, which on closer inspection makes many a mineralogically ticking heart beat faster. Passing the Katzberg farmhouse, turn left and walk along a meadow ridge, past the Pölzlehen house down to the campsite. Turn left uphill to reach the starting point again.
