Stroll between Rosenhain and Mariagrün
Castles and villas: the idyllic path between Rosenhain and Mariagrün invites you to take a look around while enjoying a leisurely stroll.
Another jewel in the middle of the lush greenery is the pilgrimage church of Mariagrün. Not far from the church, where, by the way, the famous Austrian writer Peter Rosegger married his first wife, a memorial path was donated to the poet.
Arrival by car:
Via the A2 or A9 freeway you can get directly to the provincial capital Graz.
Leave Quellenweg at the fork in the road heading towards Schwarzbauerweg. You pass “Rosenschlössl”, which was planned in 1912 by the city architects Burgstaller and Zauner, and other villas until an inconspicuous little path appears on the left (with prams continue on Schwarzbauerweg, then turn sharp left into Mariagrüner Straße). This leads to the picturesque pilgrimage church of Mariagrün, whose history dates back to the 17th century. The well-known Styrian poet Peter Rosegger married here in 1873, which is commemorated by the Peter Rosegger Memorial Trail that starts there. Take the Gedächtnisweg memorial trail or walk along Mariagrüner Straße to get to the crossroads at Mariatroster Straße. Here, tram line 1 returns to the city centre in the direction of Eggenberg.
