Description:
The loop tour starts at the hiking information point and leads along Donausteig Trail. We keep to the left though and unlike Donausteig Trail we do not turn into Weinerweg. After some 300m we take a left turn (Mayrhoferweg). After another left-hand bend we continue down to the centre. The road merges into Friedhofstraße road where we take a right turn and underpass the trainline and continue to the cemetery. At the end of the cemetery we take a left turn and after another 200m a right turn. We follow this road until we meet Donausteig Trail again (from Bad Kreuzen). We follow the trail to Grein, but do then turn into the access road to Greinburg Castle. From there we take the footpath down to the centre. Past Stadtplatz square and Donaugasse we get back to our starting point.

Directions:
 Die Rundroute startet beim Wanderinfopoint an der Donaulände. Wir folgen dem Donausteig bis zum Rastplatz am Kalvarienberg und der Galerie in Granit. Nach diesem Abstecher mit herrlichem Ausblick auf die Donau und die Stadt Grein geht es weiter in die Jubiläumstraße (links, der Donausteig führt rechts weiter in den Wienerweg). Nach 300 m biegen wir links ab (Mayrhoferweg). Nach einer weiteren Linkskurve geht es wieder hinunter Richtung Zentrum. Die Straße mündet in die Friedhofstraße, wo wir rechts abbiegen und unter der Bahn hindurch gehen. Am Ende der Straße biegen wir links ab (Grillparzerstraße) und nach etwa 200 m wieder rechts ab (Stifterstraße). Dieser Straße folgen wir nun, bis wir wieder auf den Donausteig treffen. Diesem folgen wir über den Mühlberg (Rastplatz) nach Grein, durch die Kreuznerstraße und über den Schlosspark geht es ins Zentrum. Über den Stadtplatz und die Donaugasse erreichen wir unseren Ausgangspunkt.
