Description:
From Kirchenplatz square we hike along Hauptstraße and take a right turn into Schulweg road. We hike past the secondary school and continue on a country lane. We hike northwards and get to Etzing, where there is also a Donausteig resting place. After Etzing we take a right turn and hike down towards the Danube. We leave the road at the last farm house and continue on a country lane and then through the forest down to Schlögen. We hike past Hotel Donauschlinge and up to Schlögener Blick vantage point. Then we continue on Ciconia Trail for a bit. We follow Donausteig Trail until we leave Haibach. In the Donauleiten hills we take a turn towards Wiesing and after a downhill section we cross the Nibelungen federal road. On the other side of the road we hike uphill again on a ski piste. We leave the forest at Dunzing and continue to hike through the cultured landscape. We pass the Fadinger monument and two guesthouses before we get back to St. Agatha.

Directions:
Vom Kirchenplatz wandern wir die Hauptstraße entlang und biegen rechts in den Schulweg ein. Vorbei an der Hauptschule geht es über einen Feldweg weiter. Wir halten uns weiter in Richtung Norden und gelangen nach Etzing, wo sich auch ein Donausteigrastplatz befindet. Nach Etzing biegen wir rechts ab und wandern nach unten Richtung Donau. Beim letzten Bauernhof verlassen wir die Straße und gehen erst über einen Feldweg, dann durch den Wald hinunter nach Schlögen. Vorbei am Hotel Donauschlinge wandern wir den Weg hinauf zum Schlögener Blick und folgen danach ein Stück dem Ciconia Weg. Bis nach Haibach folgen wir dem Verlauf des Donausteiges. In den Donauleiten biegen wir aber Richtung Wiesing ab und queren nach einem Abstieg die Nibelungen Bundesstraße. Auf der anderen Seite steigen wir vorbei an einer Schipiste wieder auf. Wir folgen dem Wanderweg, gehen aber nicht bis zur Ruine Stauff, sonder biegen vorher rechts ab. Bei Dunzing verlassen wir den Wald und wandern sodann wieder durch die Kulturlandschaft. Wir kommen am Fadingerdenkmal und zwei Wirtshäusern vorbei, bevor wir wieder in St. Agatha ankommen.
