Autumn Event "Desire for hiking"
ORF Radio OÖ, Oberbank and the province of Upper Austria are once again organising the 4-part autumn hiking series "On the Most Beautiful Hiking Routes in Upper Austria." The inauguration on Sunday, 23 rd September 2018, takes place this year on the occasion of the jubilee year "100 years Spring Bad Schallerbach". For the first time in co-operation with the Eurotherme in the holiday region Vitalwelt Bad Schallerbach.
Starting at the Atrium Bad Schallerbach at the Europaplatz, the family-friendly route leads from 10:00 am through the center over the Magdalena mountain with its "landmark", the Magdalena church as the first stop, further along, the ridge overlooking the thermal bath and past the Hubertus chapel. After approx. 6 km you pass the Hofbühne Tegernbach. The originally baroque farm has been used as a cultural center since 1995. Later you look from a hill to the district capital Grieskirchen. At its two castles, the moated castle Parz, which houses the gallery Schloss Parz (Galerie Schloss Parz) with impressive predominantly contemporary art, as well as the country castle Parz (Landschloss Parz), famous for the most important (outer) fresco wall north of the Alps and the Renaissance garden, which also represent the second station, you will hike on the way over the parish church, the Karbrunnen (fountain) and the brewery Grieskirchen (Pilsnerei) over, before at noon rest on the sports field Grieskirchen Gottfried Würcher of the Nockalm quintet will play.
Then it continues to the train station, which connects the cities Linz and Passau, and the companies Fröling and Pöttinger. The next village in the Trattnach valley is Schlüßlberg, before the way along the Trattnach back to Bad Schallerbach is hit. Through the Botanica-Park, the former spa park, which was redesigned on the occasion of the Upper Austria county garden show 2009 and since then a special recreational oasis, you hike along the flower axis direction EurothermenResort and the newly arranged for this year anniversary thermal spa promenade back to the starting point.
Let the hiking day with its varied 21 kilometers through the natural landscapes of the beautiful Hausruck county with surprises after about 3,5 to 4 hours walking time (without breaks!) end in the Atrium at the Europaplatz.
