Tips for this tour

Once there was a woman who was surprised by a mudslide while hiking through the valley. In the legend about the origin of the Klobenstein rock we learn how she desperately prayed to the Mother of God when the stone is said to have split and thus saved her from death. A visit to the small pilgrimage church of Maria Klobenstein is worthwhile.
