Long-distance hiking trail along the Große Mühl.
0 km  Start at the church in Klaffer. Walk past the herb garden (well worth a visit) and you are immediately on the Sonnenweg. Continue left here. Immediately afterwards, leave the road and turn right downhill onto the meadow path and cross the footbridge over the Große Mühl river in the valley. The path leads you uphill through the Torfau nature reserve.
Before the village of Seitelschlag, continue left along the field path. You are accompanied by a wonderful view over the wide Mühl valley. The beautiful blackwood chapel invites you to pause for a moment (bench).
At the tarmac road, turn left and you will soon reach the Resch construction company. Here you can take a detour of about 800 metres to the Ulrichsberg market. However, turn right towards Stangl. Before the first farmstead, don't overlook the turn-off to the left.
A beautiful field path follows to

6 km  Naturflussbad, where you cross the river again. Here you can take a 700m detour to Ulrichsberg market. However, you march downstream on the northern bank along the Wiesensteig to Erlet. Cross the bridge here. Immediately afterwards, you continue along the romantic river on the southern bank. Cross the bridge at Bruckhäuseln and walk back along the northern bank to the Aigen-Schlägl outdoor pool. Pass the outdoor pool. Turn right into Mühlstraße (if you are taking a detour to Aigen, then turn left).
Immediately afterwards, turn left into the Schlägl-Ödenkirchen road and continue along the pavement, crossing the next roundabout. You will soon arrive at

13 km  Schlägl Abbey (well worth a visit). Continue along the road, which turns into an old tree-lined avenue. You will soon cross the Mühlkreisbahn railway track 
At the lovingly renovated Steinbloßhaus, the so-called Bruckmühle, turn left and soon turn right onto the meadow path, which leads you towards the forest. Follow the signs W1 through the forest. You will emerge from the forest.
The former pepper mill is located on the opposite bank. The path now leads away from the Große Mühl and you come to the small village of Minihof. Here you turn right again down to the river and cross it over the bridge. To the left, the hiking trail initially continues along a little-used access road before leading downhill into the beautiful meadow and forest path, which accompanies you to the idyllically situated

20 km  Furtmühle (bridge). Old trade routes crossed here. One led here from Aigen along the Große Mühl, the more important one was a salt route, the connection between Rohrbach and South Bohemia. A toll station was set up at the Furtmühle mill.
The hiking trail signposting W1 ends at the Furtmühle mill. If you would like to continue to Haslach, follow the Große Runde steep-step trail, trail no. 78.
On the southern bank along the river, continue along the road to Gattergaßling. Turn left in the village and shortly turn slightly right onto the meadow path. At the forest entrance after the access road, continue left to the Große Mühl. Along the banks of the Große Mühl downstream to the

24.1 km  Kranzling leisure centre and on to the

25 km  Haslach marketplace. Bus connection from Haslach via Rohrbach to Aigen-Schlägl, Ulrichsberg and Klaffer possible. If you would like to continue to Haslach railway station, follow the Michlweg trail no. 76 from Haslach market square towards the parish church. The Church of St Nicholas is the most impressive late Gothic church in the Upper Mühlviertel. The presbytery with ribbed vaulting dates from around 1350 and the tower, which today stands free and was built as a defence tower, is a landmark of Haslach.
Pass the church on the left, cross the steps and then turn right towards Stegmühle. After the bridge, turn right along the Steinerne Mühl. From here you have a beautiful view of the ring wall and the corner tower.

25.6 km  Shortly before the next bridge, turn left towards Haslach railway station. Before doing so, it is worth making a detour to the right over the bridge to the Mühlviertler Ölmühle and the Manufaktur Haslach. Linseed oil has been pressed in the Mühlviertel oil mill for more than 500 years. (Visits by appointment). The Haslach manufactory can also be visited by appointment.
You can see the various processing methods step by step, from the raw wool to the finished product. From here you have a very good view of the imposing building of the former Vonwiller weaving mill, where the Mechanical Sound Factory Museum has been open to the public since 2007. You can also see the largest iron (the mangle with a length of 12 metres) in its own glass building in the garden with dyer's plants. The trail leads along the Mühl on meadow and forest paths as well as the last section on an asphalt road to the

27.9 km  Magerl Bridge. Cross the bridge and continue left and after 300 metres you will reach

28.1 km  Haslach station. Here you can take the Mühlkreisbahn railway to Aigen-Schlägl. From there you can take the Postbus to the starting point in Klaffer.

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.
