Forecast

On Thursday we will be in a meteorological no man’s land! Neither high pressure nor low pressure will influence our weather and the air will be moderately humid. For our weather here this will mean a calm mix of sunshine and cloud.

Tendency

The weather situation will become more exciting from Friday! A strong, stormy low will form over the northern Atlantic and will reach us in the course of the day causing very humid and unsettled weather for the next few days. A lasting improvement in the weather is expected for Monday.

Take the 8-seater gondola up to Stiglreith. Alternatively, you can choose to walk up the mountain by following the Haggenweg trail gently uphill through the forest for 1.5 hours until you reach the Stiglreith car park. Please note: fees apply to park in the car park and a driving ban prohibits driving there between 1 November and 30 April.

Below the Gästehaus Kofler guesthouse, you will find the Chapel of the Visitation, which was built by the Kofler Family to fulfil a promise. The chapel was consecrated in 1992. A mountain church service (Almsegen) accompanied by a small celebration takes place here every year on the Sunday after the Visitation (2 July). The site of the chapel was formerly home to a stone cross built to ask God for good weather. 

Head down to the curve in the road below the Stiglreith car park and follow the Sonnenweg trail south to the highest district of Oberperfuss: Gfas at an altitude of 1,517 metres above sea level. The chapel in Gfas is a Chapel of Our Lady and was originally made of wood. In 1941, Franz Leitner replaced the wooden construction with a brick-built chapel, which was consecrated in 1987 following renovation work. The distinctive Rosskogel mountain towers up behind the chapel. 

Hike along the road towards Sulzstich (reservoir) and then follow either the Geisterwanderweg (Ghost Trail) or the road back to Stiglreith. From there, continue down the mountain along the panoramic road towards the Egghöfe district, which is home to the Notburga Chapel, built in 2003. The chapel’s altar is adorned with a beautiful carved figure of Saint Notburga by Mathias Resch from St. Ulrich.

The hike now leads down the mountain to Oberperfuss. Follow the signposts along the Wiesensteig trail no. 9b and the Waldsteig trail no. 6b until you reach the edge of the forest. From there, continue west to the Haggenweg and back to the car park at the Bergbahnen Oberperfuss lift station.

This relaxed chapel hike is an excellent opportunity to get to know both the landscape and culture of Oberperfuss in more detail. A number of friendly and welcoming cafés, guesthouses and mountain huts invite you to stop off for a rest and a bite to eat along the way.

Sources and literature: “Gemeindebuch Oberperfuss” (Oberperfuss Parish Chronicle) 
Rest stops: Restaurant Sulzstich (only open when the Bergbahnen Oberperfuss lift is operating), Rosskogelhütte (open from mid-May to the end of October) and the Panoramarestaurant Stiglreith.
