Directions

The pilgrimage trail leads from Gallizien via Abriach and an access road to the power plant house on the Drava River. The trail continues south of the Drava River along shady forest paths to Trieblach and St. Margareten im Rosental (Gallizien - St. Margareten: approx. 9.5 km), whereby the trail climbs steadily at the beginning and you cover several meters in altitude. From St. Margareten you hike over the farmsteads vulgo Bauch, Humer and the Gotschuchenweg to the campsite Rosental Roz and from there to the Drau river, where you follow the bike path along the dam to the west for the next kilometers to Glainach (St. Margareten - Glainach: approx. 10 km). From here, follow the Drau cycle path to Ferlach, where you first cross the Waidischbach stream and then reach the Grießbach stream, before which you turn left into the center of Ferlach and walk into the town (Glainach - Ferlach: approx. 5 km).

On this day's stage you should take enough food with you, as there is only one grocery store on the way in St. Margareten im Rosental (Attention: closed at noon) and northwest of the town at the Rosental Roz campsite, a possibility to stop for refreshments. The Kramer Inn in St. Margareten and the Antonitsch Inn in Glainach, both popular places to stop along this route, have closed in the meantime!

During high water, it is recommended to cross the Waidischbach at Ferlach on the road bridge. For this purpose, you have to leave the cycle path to the left, i.e. in a southerly direction, and walk about 400 m to the main road.
