Description:
From the starting place in Oberlandshaag we hike downstream towards Unterlandshaag. We walk under the Danube bridge to Aschach (We take a right turn at the bike information point, bike storage.) and hike past farms and houses. From there we continue straight until we take a left turn at the last farm house. Before we get to Feldkirchen we take a left turn and follow the country lane to Bergheim Castle, where the Agricultural Technical College is accommodated. From there we hike into the centre of Feldkirchen. We cross the village and keep the direction. Before we get to the Danube the trail makes a left-hand bend and leads to the bathing lakes of Feldkirchen. These are five artificial lakes with a total surface of 630,000m². The water of the lakes is ground water of the Danube. Sports activities: swimming including nudist area, fishing, surfing, water skiing, diving; there is also a campsite. After the lake on which one can enjoy water skiing, we take a left turn and follow the trail until we leave the lakes on the road. We keep to the right and pass the golf course. After passing another lake we take a left turn towards Mühldorf. Once more we meet the golf course area before we get to Mühldorf Castle. From Mühldorf Castle we hike to Pesenbach and cross the village. We cross the federal road and take a left turn towards Bad Mühllacken. From there we hike into Pesenbachtal Nature Reserve. We do not cross the valley completely, but climb down to the left to Prälatensteig Path. We follow Donausteig Trail from there and soon get past Fausschlössl to our starting point.

Directions:
Vom Startplatz in Oberlandshaag wandern wir nach Unterlandshaag unter der Donaubrücke hindurch (bei der Radinfo rechts abbiegen) vorbei an kleineren Siedlungen. Geradeaus weiter und beim letzten Bauernhaus biegen wir links ab. Entlang des Feldweges vorbei am Schloss Bergheim kommen wir in das Zentrum Feldkirchens. Wir durchqueren den Ort und bevor wir zur Donau gelangen geht’s links zu den Feldkirchner Badeseen mit Tauchstation, Wakeboard- und Wasserskilift sowie dem Motorikpark. Nach dem Wasserskiliftsee biegen wir links ab und lassen das Seengelände hinter uns. Wir halten uns rechts, vorbei am Golfclub und nach einem weiteren See links in Richtung Mühldorf. Von Schloss Mühldorf wandern wir nach Pesenbach überqueren die Bundesstrasse und biegen links nach Bad Mühllacken ab. In Bad Mühllacken steigen wir ins Naturschutzgebiet Pesenbachtal ein und erklimmen den Prälatensteig vorbei am Faustschlössl zurück zum Ausgangspunkt.

Tip:

Der Kerzenstein befindet sich im wildromantischen und sagenreichen Pesenbachtal und ist das Wahrzeichen des Naturschutzgebietes.
Abenteuer und Aktion finden Sie rund um die 4 Feldkirchner Badeseen.
