From Hotel Kongress to the Pogusch

Coach and group tour to the romantic Bründelweg

Located on the way from Leoben to Mariazell, the “Steirereck” inn on Pogusch is the starting point for one of the most beautiful themed hiking trails in the country. The romantic Bründelweg trail runs at an altitude of 1,000 to 1,200 meters above sea level for around 10 kilometers through the countryside above the Mürztal valley. Rustic refreshment stops and many attractions along the way guarantee an entertaining and relaxing hiking experience.

Relax and enjoy the "most beautiful themed hiking trail 2020"

The Bründelweg has been inspiring nature-loving people from near and far since 1999. With the involvement of all landowners, a project was created that has lost none of its fascination to this day.

Hiking from farm to farm, you can enjoy the tranquility and nature. At the refreshment stops you are served food and drinks. This combination of hiking and rural cuisine makes time fly by.

Regional delicacies at the Steirereck restaurant

The Steirereck am Pogusch is almost an excursion destination on its own thanks to its national fame. The produce from their own farm, coupled with the entrepreneurial and culinary visions of Birgit and Heinz Reitbauer, create a very special inn on the Pogusch. The Steirereck and the farmhouse inns along the romantic Bründelweg trail together cover the entire spectrum of Styrian cuisine. Cheers and bon appétit!

Hotel tip: Bus travel and combination options

The journey to the Pogusch via the S6 takes around 30-40 minutes. The trail starts directly opposite the Steirereck inn. The barefoot pond is the first attraction here! Buses can use the recently extended parking lot directly at the top of the pass.
