Description:
We start in the village centre (at the primary school) and walk westwards. We keep to the left and follow the side road past some farm houses through the cultured landscape. At the last farm the road merges into a gravel road and meanders its way downhill through the forest until we get to Exlau/Donau (rest stop, Viking’s Village). Now we follow the road along the Danube and keep the direction by following the course of Große Mühl River. We follow the course of the river and hike past Partenstein power station. At Ebenmühle we keep to the left and hike uphill. Through the cultured landscape we get back to Kirchberg.

Directions:
Wir starten im Ortszentrum (bei Volksschule) und gehen Richtung Westen. Wir halten uns links und folgen der Nebenstraße durch die Kulturlandschaft vorbei an einigen Bauernhäusern. Beim letzten Bauernhof geht die Straße in einen Schotterweg über und führt in Schleifen nach unten durch den Wald und mündet in Exlau an der Donau (Einkehrmöglichkeit, Wikingerdorf). Wir folgen nun der Straße der Donau entlang und behalten die Richtung bei, wenn wir dem Verlauf der Großen Mühl folgen. Beim Kraftwerk Partenstein vorbei gehen wir weiter der Großen Mühl entlang. Bei der Ebenmühle halten wir uns links und gehen den Berg hinauf. Durch die Kulturlandschaft wandern wir zurück nach Kirchberg.

Tip:
Einen atemberaubenden Ausblick hat man vom Aussichtsturm (24m) aus. Das Aussichtsplateau am Burgstall ist ca. 10 Min. Gehzeit vom Ortsplatz entfernt.
