Description:
From the starting place in Engelhartszell (municipal office, Marktplatz 61) we follow Sauwald Straße road uphill and leave it again at the first serpentine. We hike through the forest towards St. Ägidi, but take a left turn at the edge of the forest briefly after having returned to Sauwal federal road. A short detour takes us to the Moarfelsen panorama vantage point. Having enjoyed the view we hike to St. Ägidi and leave it again on the road. After the junction at the edge of the forest we turn into a side road and pass Pamingerhof farm. We meet another road that we follow to the next forest section and take a right turn. We leave the forest and get to the trout circus ( http://www.danube.at/sixcms/detail.php?id=106053&_nav=61207 ). From there we hike through the cultured landscape and pass a panorama vantage point on the Sauwald panorama road (Throne). We hike downhill through the forest and get to another panorama place. We continue on Donausteig Trail to Engelhartszell.

Directions:
Vom Startplatz folgen wir der Sauwald Straße nach oben, verlassen sie aber bei der ersten Serpentine. Durch den Wald wandern wir hinauf Richtung St. Aegidi, biegen aber nachdem wir wieder kurz auf die Bundesstraße getroffen sind, an einem Waldrand links ab. (Abstecher zu Panoramablick Moarfelsen) Zurück zur Straße, queren wir sie und gehen auf der Nebenstraße weiter und kommen beim Pamingerhof vorbei. Am Waldrand vorbei treffen wir auf eine andere Straße. Dieser folgen wir bis zum nächsten Waldstück und biegen rechts ab. Beim Verlassen des Waldes kommen wir zum Forellenzirkus. Von dort wandern wir durch die Kulturlandschaft und kommen noch bei einem Panoramablick der Sauwald Panoramastraße vorbei (Thron). Durch den Wald wandern wir hinunter und treffen auf einen weiteren Panoramaplatz, an dem vorbei wir dem Donausteig nach Engelhartszell folgen
