Hartelsgraben Theme Trail

Hartelsgraben Theme Trail

500 metres of elevation – that’s the hurdle you’ll have to take if you want to get to know the oldest forest road in Styria. Of course, there are far worse things than hiking the Hartelsgraben Notch and marvelling at the cascading waterfalls.

Why is there a theme trail about the forest located in Hartelsgraben Notch? Because this place has been closely linked to the wood industry for many years. The old road along which charcoal was transported already existed 500 years ago. By reading the charts along the way and by lighting up the charcoal pile you’ll discover the history of logging and the importance of charcoal for the ‘Ore Mountain’. So, hiking and gaining new knowledge go hand in hand at Hartelsgraben Notch!

Perfect for hot days

Hartelsgraben Notch is simply made for those hot summer days. The cool and wet hill sides have become the home of an entire maple and ash forest, where water appears in the most impressive forms – cascading down the river bed. So the atmosphere and the temperatures in Hartelsgraben Notch are simply perfect for hot summer days.

Take me to the top

At the top of Hartelsgraben Notch the beautiful Sulzkaralm pasture with the only lake in the National Park is waiting. If you get lucky, a marmot might appear right next to a cow or a free-range pig might even show up in the picture. Once you are able to take your eyes off all the lovely creatures you can even continue your way to Hesshütte Lodge.

A house near the rock face.

Sulzkaralm Hut

Sulzkaralm Hut

To be called the most beautiful pasture of a National Park must mean something, right? But how come? Probably because the pasture boasts a lovely lake, a cosy hut and lots of animals, such as marmots, cows and chamois. Or is it because it is conveniently located between Hesshütte Lodge and Hartelsgraben Notch? It doesn’t really matter, all you need to know is that this is a place where you can put up your feet, close your eyes and simply… enjoy!
