Description:
This hike up to Gobelwarte observation deck starts at the Red Cross by Donaubundesstraße State Road. Initially through Am Hofberg district, then along a well-developed hiking trail gently uphill with beautiful views of Grein, to Labegger farm. Continue on a farm track to the "Plank" and on the road to "Gobelwarte rest area". Opposite the St. Hubert`s Chapel uphill on the right to Gobelwarte observation deck, built in 2018. At 484 m above sea level, the spectacular 21 m high steel construction offers fabulous 360° views, in the north of the hill lands of Mühlviertel, in the south of the Alps, in the west of Machland and in the east of Grein and Strudengau. The way back to leads along "Nombergersteig" track (No. 2). From the chapel follow the road to the right to "Nomberger" farm, then follow the signs through the forest back to Grein.

Tip:
Another option for the way back is Gobel agricultural road, past "Kren" farm and continuing along Groißgraben agricultural road, then left to Binderalm Inn, beckoning to put in a nice break with views of Grein. Continue for a short bit through woodlands back downhill again, heading for the centre.
