From the landing stage you walk underneath the railroad and highway to Freyenthurn Castle. You reach a beautiful vantage point with a view over the vineyards to the eastern shore of Lake Wörthersee. Continue along trail no. 7 to the Zillhöhe at 536 m. An idyllic resting place with a magnificent view. Continue to Krumpendorf, past the natural monument Gletschertöpfe, Hornstein Castle and Drasing Castle. After Pirk you will reach the highest point of the hike, the Pirker Kogel with 666 m. A short but steep ascent. At Hoher Gaisrücken the path branches off to Pörtschach. Passing the Buschenschenke Brock, it goes below the highway to the center. In Pörtschach, on the way to the landing stage, you will find old villas from the Wörthersee architecture.
