Variant Neukirchen 2nd stage: As soon as the forest road joins the country road at Großalm, we follow it to the left for 100 m and turn left again into Moosbach-Forststraße.
After a further 3.5 km we come to the alternative junction.
Not left up to Hochkreut, but right down to Neukirchen.
At the beginning follow the road bends, then along meadow paths (old church paths) above the country road directly to the village centre, where there is a nice guesthouse for the overnight stay.
Please also reserve here! (with this variant the 2nd stage is extended by 5 km to a total of 23 km)3rd stage: The next morning there will be the opportunity to buy a snack (bakery, butcher, Spar market).
Then we take the direct way up to the former zoo Hochkreut.
At the 1st station of the Way of the Cross to Richtberg Taferl, we return to the path indicated from the Josefweg.
The total distance of the 3rd stage is shortened by 2.5 km to a total of 22.4 km.
