Wachau World Heritage Trail: From Maria Laach to Aggsbach Markt

The gothic pilgrimage church of Maria Laach marks the beginning of this stage. Passing „Litzendorfer Kreuzstöckerl“ (wayside shrine)you walk to hamlet Litzendorf. In a big curve the way leads via the Jauerling plateau to secluded „Schleinkhof“ (stamp satation). After a short rise the way leads just down to the Danube valley to Aggsbach Markt, the end of your tour.

Author’s recommendation

We recommend a visit at the farmers‘ market located in the „Kerblerhaus“ in the center of Maria Laach, open every Saturday from 9a.m. till 3p.m.
