Route description

Starting point of the hiking tour is the church in Medraz. From there you'll head via a steep asphalted road to the settlement Medrazer Stille, where the Talersteig is immediately adjacent. It leads through a forest to the Blutschwitzerkapelle (engl. sweating blood chapel). It continues towards the Sonnenstein Inn, which offers an opportunity to rest and have a meal. Further on the way you keep following the signs on the forest path, which will take the hiker to the monastery Maria Waldrast.
