Description:
Starting point for the hike is at the hiking info-point at the Donaulände. The well signpostet family hiking trail No. 9 initially leads through the little Danube town of Grein, past the gallery in granite, across Kreuzleiten hill to Werfensteinblick viewpoint. Continue to the gorge entrance at Gießenbachmühle. Now walk uphill through the gorge, past the spectacular granite formations to the highlight of the hike, the "Quiet rock". Here the stream flows underground for a bit. Then the trail continues, first through the forest, then across meadows to Aumühle Inn. High route No. 7 leads through the gentle Mühlviertel hillscape, first along a forest trail, later on agricultural roads back to the little Danube town of Grein.

Tip:
On the way back, a detour from hiking trail No. 7 to Marienstein, a rock formation of granite with a statue of the Virgin Mary - wonderful views of Grein and the Danube Valley all the way to the Alps! To stop off for lunch, we recommend Aumühle country inn for a short break and to recharge your batteries, before climbing up through the gorge to Gießenbachmühle snack-bar.

Safety guidelines:
Accessible all year round at your own risk. Not recommended in wet and snowy conditions, be careful!

Equipment:
good footwear is essential
