Quality of experience: ****
- Summit route
From the starting point of the hike (parking lot a municipal park/kindergarten) we walk through Kirchengasse Alley to St. Stephen`s parish church. Here begins the way of the cross, lined with sculptures made of steel and granite, running along almost the entire mountain settlement. After the last station, a circle of 13 stone pillars, we follow a field and forest path uphill to the right. Through beautiful Steyregger Forest with its old beech trees, we continue uphill along a moderate gradient, from the left Alpine Association Trail No. 51 comes up, after 3 km or 1 hour and a short distance along the forest edge we get to Brauner Farm at just under 500 m above sea level. We follow the sealed road, past the hiking trail crossing with benches and after just over a kilometre once again enter the forest at a freestanding oak tree. The last 15 minutes require some effort, the forest trail is steep! We get now to the 616 m -high summit of Pfenningberg.
The hiking trail was established in 2019 as the result of an Agenda 2000 project in Steyregg municipality. The Steyregg hikes are typical "Mühlviertel" and very easy to get to by public transport.
