Memorial Stone

Grünau im Almtal, Oberösterreich , Österreich

NOW SAY YOU! - A behavioral challenge from person to person! - Take a minute's silence on the way to the Hochberghaus - at exactly 1000 m above sea level.

Because according to alpine custom, you can address people you meet higher up with "you"! So that you do not overlook this 1000 m mark (and mistakenly remain formal), we have erected a monument - the world's only DU STONE on the mountain road Farrenau.

Via the mountain road Farrenau to the Kasberg - area for hikers and summiteers Approx. 3 km you drive from Grünau towards Schindlbach to the mountain road driveway. The slope (approx. 12%) leads over pastureland, through high forest, larch meadows and beech valleys, with valley and distant views, until you arrive at the Hochberg car park after 6 km and 12 switchbacks. The mountain inn Hochberghaus awaits you here at 1200 m above sea level - a base for hikers, mountaineers and those seeking relaxation, as well as the starting point for beautiful hikes to the Kasberg, to the Sepp-Huber-Hütte u. a.Toll fee: Please pay the toll fee before returning to the Hochberghaus or at the coin machine when returning. (Free tickets are also available in the house next to the toll booth.) The toll fee is only paid when you leave the mountain road Farrenau.
