The " "Jakobsweg Weststeiermark was opened on 25 July 2010 and is divided into eight stages. These were chosen in such a way that they are manageable for average hikers. Overnight accommodation is available at the end of each stage. Particularly sporty pilgrims will probably be able to cope with a larger daily workload, while in bad weather or on sightseeing tours the mileage will be lower. Most of the path leads along existing hiking and pilgrim routes and some along asphalted municipal and country roads.
