R2 Ulrichsbrunn circular trail
A path for personal fitness, as well as a supposedly healing contribution to your own health thanks to the Ulrichsbrunn water. You walk from Semriach parish church up to the 950 m high Windhofkogel and back via Anger and Karl am Stein to Semriach.
You start at the pilgrims' fountain of the late Gothic parish church and then walk downhill past the Raiffeisenbank to the right-hand Marktbach stream. Now uphill past the new secondary school and along a forest path you finally reach the panorama trail. You walk through the small hamlet there and along a farm track leading uphill to the edge of the forest. A bench set up here invites you to linger, because from here you have an excellent distant view of the West Styrian mountains, even as far as the Koralpe. The trail then continues along a forest path to Windhofstraße, from where the path leads up to the idyllically situated Ulrichsbrunn Chapel. The constantly flowing water there offers soothing refreshment and is also said to have healing properties. The Ulrichsbrunn Chapel, built in the 18th century, invites you to linger and enjoy a moment of reflection. The trail leads back over the Windhofkogel with panoramic views of the Almenland. You now descend to Windhofstraße and cross it. The route then leads through forest and meadow paths to the "Karl am Stein" farm. You should not miss out on a rest at the local bench and an invitation to taste the farm's own produce before continuing towards Semriach. In the forest, you come across the educational hiking trail and you can also follow the very informative information boards on the educational hiking trail. Once you come out of the forest again, you can enjoy a wonderful panoramic view of Semriach, where your hike began.
