Description

We start this tour at the church square in the centre of Unterach.

Cross the bridge at the kindergarten and turn right up the Wiesenweg.

After having crossed the bypass road, we follow the markings in the direction of "Jubiläumsbaum".

Afterwards we walk on the forest nature trail through the chestnut forest.

This is unique because nowhere else north of the Alps do the sweet chestnuts reach their full maturity.

In the forest you have the possibility to hike to the Hochplettspitz or to the Egelsee.

The goal of this tour is the anniversary tree.

It was planted in 1908 for the 60th anniversary of the reign of Emperor Franz Josef.

After a rest in the shade of the mighty branches we return to the starting point on the same path.
