Short description

Hiking in Klausen is a lasting cultural experience.

Description

Säben Monastery was once known as the Acropolis of Tyrol and has stood on a prominent rocky hill above Klausen in the Eisacktal Valley for centuries. The monastery is still inhabited by a number of nuns and is not only a popular hiking destination, but also a place of refuge and peace for many.

Starting point of the tour

Klausen town centre

Destination of the tour

Säben Monastery

Route description

The hike starts in the centre of the Dürer town of Klausen on path no. 1, which is well-marked and hikers will certainly not miss it. You first reach Branzoll Castle via fairly steep stone steps. It is not accessible. A paved pilgrims' path leads up to the highest point of the hike, the Church of the Holy Cross.

Even though it is more of a walk than a hike, the path to the monastery is very rewarding. You can see the lovely little town of Klausen with the Eisack river running through it from above and get to know an impressive example of medieval monastic culture.
