Description

 

 

From the tourist information office on the path to Wallhorn and the Allerseelenkapelle, then continue straight on, continuing via a country lane to Bobojach. After the bridge before the "Blaserhof" bear left, and then continue via route 31, through a short section of forest initially and then via a route which alternates between steep pasture and forest, heading back into the forest. The ravine which his now to be negotiated in front of the "Hohen Bank" has safety cables. Continue through the shaded, cool Stegach forest and on an overgrown path an area of pastureland you will come to a cross. Climb slightly on an old sunken road and come to the "Burgbühel", and then to the famous pilgrimage church in Obermauern, called the "Maria Schnee". There are lovely frescoes painted towards the end of the 15th century by Simon von Taisten.
