Beautiful hike with wonderful views of the Bohemian Forest vacation area. Not a round trip.
Starting point Rohrbach-Berg parish church: 
The trail leads parallel to the chapel path until shortly before the Maria Trost pilgrimage church. The starting point is at the Rohrbach-Berg parish church. We cross the church square and follow Berggasse up to Grimshof, the former Meierhof of Berg Castle. Above this courtyard was once the castle of the Counts of Rödern, as the castle walls and the castle gate still remind us. At Mitterweg we turn right and after approx. 30 metres left onto Bergweg. Soon afterwards, at the Holzstadl, continue left uphill across the meadow. Pass the Schenkkapelle, the Kriegnerkapelle and the "Schickanus" at the top. Walk uphill along the edge of the forest over the exposed, historic stone steps (presumably, like the Schikanus, from 1730) and you will soon reach the road leading up to the pilgrimage church.
Here you leave the chapel path and continue left parallel to the panoramic path. Enjoy the beautiful views on the mountain road. At Pfaffenberg you pass the plague column and shortly afterwards the liberation cross. Immediately afterwards, the meadow path branches off at a right angle across the meadow. You cross the railway track downhill and come to the point where it joins the Kirsteig trail from the starting point at the Mosthütte snack station. *From here, the route description is shared  

Starting point Jausenstation Mosthütte, Stifterstraße: 
From the cosy Mosthütte hut, walk westwards towards the forest and cross it. At the end of the forest, the path turns into an asphalt road. Shortly afterwards, we cross the railway track. We continue the hike along the slope along a beautiful field path and reach the point where it joins the Kirsteig trail from the starting point at Rohrbach parish church. 
 
*) From here, we share the route description 
*) The Kirsteig trail takes you through the forest. A beautiful field path begins. At the tarmac road, turn right into Molkereistraße and continue in the direction of Sexling. Before you reach Sexling, leave the road and turn left onto the meadow and field path. Walk past the farms and join the road that takes you up the Fürlingerberg on the right. Shortly before the road leads into the forest again, turn left and continue alongside the houses. Take a look back from time to time and enjoy the beautiful view. In fine weather, you can see as far as the Alps and the Berger pilgrimage church. At the very top, when you reach the last house, immerse yourself in the Fürlinger Holz. Before the Perwolfing elevated reservoir, the forest briefly opens up and a beautiful meadow extends to the edge of the forest. From the bench on the right at the edge of the forest, you can enjoy the wonderful views.
At the back of the forest, sometimes downhill, sometimes uphill and mostly flat, keep to the red-white-red tree markings and the yellow signposts until you reach the hiking golf trail.
Now always downhill, past some golf stations, you emerge from the forest and head directly uphill on the tarmac road towards the houses and the Wirtshaus Kollonödt. If you continue along Schlägler Rundweg trail no. 45, you will reach Aigen-Schlägl, which is why it is also a connecting trail between Rohrbach-Berg and Aigen-Schlägl. 

Starting point Wirtshaus Kollonödt: 
You walk parallel to the former hiking golf trail and Jakobsweg trail briefly downhill and then towards the forest. Initially, the forest path leads steeply uphill. Once you reach the top of the forest ridge, you leave the hiking golf trail. Follow the red-white-red tree markings and the yellow hiking trail signs.
You walk through the Fürlinger Holz, sometimes downhill, sometimes uphill and mostly on flat forest paths and tracks. After the Perwolfing elevated reservoir, a beautiful meadow stretches right up to the edge of the forest. A wonderful view opens up and the bench on the left-hand edge of the forest is an inviting place to take a break.
You continue along the forest path and reach the Fürling settlement houses, where you can see the Alpine chain on clear days. The Maria Trost pilgrimage church in Berger is also getting closer. Now head downhill on the tarmac road. Just after the sharp right-hand bend on the left, don't miss the turn-off to the farms.
A beautiful field and meadow path leads you to the road towards Sexling continue right. Just after the Berger building yard, you leave the dairy road, turn left and continue the hike along the field path.
You cross the forest and come to the point where the paths now divide and you have to decide whether to take the path to the Mosthütte snack station (1.4 km) or to the Rohrbach-Berg parish church (also 1.4 km). The Jakobsweg leads uphill to the Pfaffenberg and via the Wallfahrtskirche Maria Trost to the Stadtpfarrkirche Rohrbach-Berg and the town square. You can reach the Mosthütte snack station in about ½ hour along the mountain and parallel to the Psalmenweg.

Vis-à-vis users

1. The tours presented for hiking, walking, biking and road biking, mountain biking, motorbiking, horseback riding, climbing, cross-country skiing, and going on skiing and snowshoe tours etc. are to be considered non-paid tour recommendations and only serve as non-binding information. We have no intention of concluding a contract with the users of this website. The utilisation of the data does not lead to the establishment of a contract with us.

 

The data may only be used for private use; any commercial use is prohibited. In particular, it is not permissible to offer the data on commercially run websites, file-sharing platforms etc. or to use it to develop commercial products. Downloading data does not imply that users are granted rights to the data concerned.

 

The tour recommendations posted were created with utmost care; nevertheless, we assume no liability for the correctness and completeness of the information.

 

We point out that neither the tour recommendations included on this website nor the associated data and information were posted by us, but rather by third parties (Art. 16 Austrian E-Commerce Act). We have no influence on whether the details provided (e.g. distance, level of difficulty, change in altitude, description etc.) are authentic, correct and complete. We do not review these third-party contents. For this reason, we assume no liability for the authenticity, correctness and completeness of the information.

 

Construction-related measures or other influences (e.g. landslides and similar occurrences) can lead to temporary or permanent changes in a route (e.g. loss of a bridge and similar occurrences). Such occurrences can lead to part of the route or the entire route becoming impassable.

 

The use of the data as well as undertaking (riding, walking, taking etc.) the recommended tours or using the network of paths occurs at users’ own risk and on their authority. In particular, users themselves are responsible for the choice of route, outdoor orientation, adherence to traffic rules, supplies and equipment for tours listed in Point 1 (e.g. bicycle etc.), wearing a helmet, estimating their own fitness, recognising dangers and maintaining an appropriate velocity. We exclude ourselves from any liability whatsoever for damages, in particular accidents, that occur whilst taking part in the recommended tours.

 

2.Some of the tours lead over roads with normal traffic conditions. Please observe that there is an increased risk which can be avoided by means of appropriate attention and proper estimation and implementation of one’s own abilities. For this reason, please travel a route that is unfamiliar to you slowly and with special care. Pay constant attention to potential dangers and always observe traffic. Do not leave the routes featured in descriptions.

 

The potential use of private roads, in particular forestry roads and agricultural transport roads, can be subject to legal restrictions, which must be observed and adhered to.

 

The normal traffic rules apply. Each user (e.g. biker, motorbiker) is responsible for adhering to these rules and maintaining his/her bike/vehicle and its equipment (lights, brakes etc.) in good working order. Each user is also responsible for ensuring that he/she rides at a velocity that is appropriate for the conditions and his/her skill level and for maintaining sufficient distance to the rider in front. We explicitly recommend adjusting velocity to correspond to the respective field of vision, wearing a helmet, using reflective clothing (or similar) and employing bicycle lights in line with regulations.

 

3.Each tour requires good physical fitness as well as detailed planning. We explicitly recommend only taking the tours in the case of optimal healthiness.

 

We recommend that you conclude an accident and liability insurance policy. Use an onboard computer that displays the respective kilometres travelled per day and is calibrated for the front wheel.

 

4.Special for mountain bikers – Fair-play rules:

 

Mountain biking is one of the most wonderful outdoor leisure-time activities. Whilst biking or on a mountain biking tour, mountains and lakes, meadows and cabins are re-discovered in new ways. A couple of rules for fair play in the forest help to avoid conflicts whilst mountain biking.

 

a.Pedestrians have the right of way: We are accommodating and friendly to pedestrians and hikers. Upon encountering these fellow travellers, we alert them by using the bicycle bell and slowly overtake them. We avoid paths with heavy pedestrian traffic altogether. Take nature into account: We do not leave refuse behind.

b.The braking distance should be half of the total distance visible: We ride at a controlled pace, are ready to brake and maintain a braking distance half as long as the total distance visible, especially in curves, because we always have to count on obstacles on the path. Damage to the path, stones, branches, wood piles, grazing livestock, cattle grids, barriers, tractor-type forestry machines and authorised vehicles pose dangers that we need to be ready for.

c.Don’t drink and drive!: Do not drink alcohol when mountain biking. Take care at stop-off points (dealing with bike racks, dirty shoes or clothing).

It is obligatory to provide first aid!

d.Marked routes, closed paths and blockades: Keep to the marked routes, observe the blockades and accept that these roads are primarily for agricultural and forestry use!

Blockades can often not be avoided and are in your own interest. Biking beyond the intended path and outside of opening times is punishable and turns us into illegal bikers.

e.We are guests in the forest and behave accordingly, including vis-à-vis forestry and hunting staff. Whilst mountain biking, mobile telephones and music players are forbidden! Biking requires your full attention.

f.Avoid unnecessary noise. Out of consideration to the animals living in the wild, we only bike during full daylight. As a principle, we always wear our helmet (even when riding uphill)! Don’t forget emergency supplies: We always have a repair set and bandages along.

g.Don’t overestimate your skills: We should not overdo it when it comes to biking technique and physical fitness. Take the level of difficulty posed by the route into consideration and make a precise estimate of your experience and skills as a biker (braking, bell, lights)!

h.Close gates: We approach grazing livestock at a walking pace and close every gate behind us. We should avoid causing escape and panic reactions in the animals. Nothing stands in the way of the fun and athletic challenge in the mountains and forests!

i.Traffic rules: The general traffic rules (StVO) apply for all the mountain biking routes and we adhere to them. Our bike therefore needs to be in perfect technical condition and equipped in line with the traffic rules, including brakes, a bell and lights. We inspect and service our mountain bikes regularly anyway.

Moreover, we have no influence on the design or contents of the websites to which hyperlinks on guide.oberoesterreich.at lead or from which hyperlinks lead to guide.oberoesterreich.at.
