Buchensteinwand Mountain – Jakobskreuz Cross

From the trailhead at Flecken, this route of intermediate difficulty weaves past historic farmsteads and climbs the gentle ridge of Buchensteinwand. Standing 30 meters tall atop the summit of Buchensteinwand Mountain, Jakobskreuz is a multi-storey building in the shape of a cross. The most exciting feature of this outstanding building, which can be seen from afar, is the glorious 360-degree views above Pillerseetal Valley. In immediate vicinity to the Jakobskreuz Cross, you will find the Buchensteinwand Alpine Inn, where you can gather new strength over hearty delicacies. For electric bikes, there is a charging station available. Each year in September, Buchensteinwand is the finish of a mountain bike race.
