Corona: Please follow the recommendations of the alpine associations of Austria, English translation on ACV (Alpine Club Vienna)

Hike Leader: Class: 4

*Description:*Take an excursion along the Liechtenstein scenic road through the Föhrenberge Nature Park. Enjoy fine views of the Vienna Basin and see verdant Spring flowers and Barlach (wild garlic) that adorn the hillsides.

*Route:*Perchtoldsdorf Marktplatz (265m) – Parapluieberg (530) – Hinterer Föhrenberge Kammsteiner Hutte (582m) – Zum Salzstanglwirt (for lunch) – Hollenstein (645m) – Kreuzsattel (582m) – Kaltenleutgeben (370m). The first hour includes a moderate ascent of about 330m which levels off once we crest the top.

*Meet:*At 9:00 AM Wien Mitte near ticket counters. We will leave at 09:22 on the R train toward Payerbach-Reichenau Bahnhof. The routing takes us to Wien Liesing station where we transfer to Bus 256 taking us to Perchtoldsdorf Marktplatz, where we begin the hike.

*Return:*Around 16:00 at Kaltenleutgeben where we take Bus 255 back to our starting point at Wien Liesing. From here it is a short train ride back to Wien Mitte (21 min) and other Vienna stops.

*Cost:*Around 3 Euros for bus fares. Transport on train is about 5 Euros for a return ticket if you don’t have a Vienna transport pass. With a pass (Jahreskarte) then you don’t need to buy a train ticket since we do not leave zone 100 (departing at Liesing station).

*Registration:*By Thursday, 19 April to hike leader.

Note: We will stop for a leisurely lunch around noon at Zum Salzstanglwirt, and then a drink later to enjoy the views at Hollenstein. Bring snacks and drinks as needed. Clothing according to weather.
