Ruin Circular Hiking Trail

Tour 3d - 7,8km - 350hm - 2,30 hrs - easy historical tour for the whole family - Fohnsdorf: ruins, view

Enjoy this easy and panoramic hiking tour in the region Murtal. Near the ruin of Fohnsdorf (Fanesdorf) you find the "Styria Heart", built in 2020. Furthermore you can see the Fohnsdorfer reconciliation cross, which is a symbole for the community, openness and respect for all people. The castle was mentioned in a document in 1252 at the first time and was rebuilt after its destruction in 1292. The ruin is the rest of the rebuilt castle, which was further expanded in the middle of the 14th century. With 4 or 5 towers it throned mightily over Fohnsdorf. Today, the ruin is a popular destination for excursions, which you can reach also easily by car. If you like to find out more about the ruin and the surroundings in the north of Fohnsdorf, the ruin circular hiking trail is the right one for you. You hike mainly on gravel and forest roads. The ascent to the farm vlg. Gstättner is identical to the hiking trail that continues uphill to Hammerleck. Who likes can extend the tour from the crossing point Gstättner and continue to Hammerleck or the Gaaler Höhe in the Murtal in Styria. Author´s tip: The tour can be extended (about 2.5 km and 400 meters in altitude), if you hike from the farm vlg. Gstättner in the direction of Hammerleck (see hike Hammerleck via Gstättner Tour No. 2a).
