The historic pilgrimage route from St. Wolfgang via Falkenstein and Ried to St. Gilgen is a unique experience. With 24 stops along the route, you can experience prehistoric places of worship, the role of the Christian missionary St. Wolfgang and the beginnings of modern tourism.

The route is, apart from a relatively steep hike to Falkenstein (about 200m difference in altitude), very comfortable for families, with picturesque and ever-changing sceneries.
