Silber circuit in Übelbach

Where once silver was mined, you can now jog, hike and stroll – and quench your thirst with some golden “barley juice”. Übelbach has changed from mining silver to brewing gold.

The Übelbach Silberweg – the name recalls the importance of silver mining in the past – is a leisurely walk around the town. You can also walk just parts of the Silberweg as it can be joined from Alter Markt (old market) at several points.

Location plan

Our starting point is at the S-Bahn (S11) railway station in Übelbach. From there, the trail is marked throughout with silver-grey arrows. Go north to the old market and up the Kalvarienbergstrasse. Turn left just before the end of the road onto the hiking trail. After a short climb, turn left again, following the arrows, past the “Sängerplatzl” over the small bridge and into the Schörgleitengraben.

Going down, the trail leads you under the L385, over the bridge that crosses the Übelbach stream, and into the Sperbergraben. Go briefly uphill, turn left and pass under the motorway bridge. Follow the gravel road to the Vinzenz promenade turnoff and continue through the forest to the Niesengraben.

After crossing the municipal road, follow the trail along the slope to the motorway bridge and enjoy the magnificent view over the whole valley. Continue to the small Warthkogel housing estate. At the end of the estate turn left onto the little road, then left again and over the motorway bridge. Now the trail goes uphill a bit before you bear left and walk along the edge of the forest in the direction of Köppelgraben. Then simply go on to the old market, where you’ll find several places to eat as well as the train station, the starting point of the tour.
