As well as taking you through lovely scenery, the trail also acts as a kind of exhibition, featuring sculptures and plaques commemorating all of the famous people who have visited Thumersbach, from the Von Trapp family to Paul Wittgenstein, and many many more.

Description

You walk in the direction of Grafleiten, enjoying wonderful views of Lake Zell all the way.
