A grotto, a spring, a waterfall … Peggau is unique when it comes to natural beauty.

The highlights of this short circular hike can be enjoyed in any season. The Peggau Märchenweg (fairy tale path), which runs along the same route, is an exciting attraction for children.

Location plan

Starting at Peggau–Deutschfeistritz railway station, walk in the direction of the Peggauer Wand rock face, turn right into Alte Landstrasse and continue in a southerly direction to the foot of the ruins of Peggau Castle. The route is well signposted. Below the castle hill, experience the impressive natural spectacle of the Mitterbach waterfall, a landmark of natural beauty that radiates peace. Along the way you’ll also pass the Marienbründl spring, whose water has been attributed healing powers since time immemorial and which also has a splendid wayside tabernacle shrine. Peggau Castle, now a ruin and in private hands, is one of the oldest fortified castles in Styria.
