Schlossberg is great and all, but not really a hike, right? Austria is full of beautiful mountains waiting for you to explore them. Why not start with the closest one, conveniently located north of Graz - Schöckl! Almost as close as Schlossberg, but a real hike!

Join us on Sunday, October 24th, as we embark on a one-day hiking trip to Schöckl and enjoy the nature and beautiful view over Graz. The journey starts in the city where we meet up and take the tram and bus to the hike's starting point. It won't be the toughest hike but certainly not a walk in the park. Therefore don't forget to wear sturdy shoes (waterproof hiking/tracking shoes) and warm clothes (we have nearly winter and there might already be snow, also for sitting outside during the breaks). Due to the Corona situation, we will not organize a lunch or visit any hut. We recommend you bring your own lunch and enough to drink!

IMPORTANT: Participation in the event is only possible by presenting one of the 3-G rules (vaccinated, tested or recovered). Bring a FFP2-mask for public transportation. If you are feeling sick or changed your mind after signing up and don't want to go any more - no problem. Just write us a short notice that you want to cancel. Most importantly, don't forget to bring a big smile and motivation. We can't wait to meet you guys and enjoy an awesome hiking day together!


P.S. Please note that the event can be cancelled due to bad weather. We will inform you via email. So make sure to check your emails regularly. We will send out a confirmation and the exact meeting point the day before.

PP.S. We reserve the right to exclude any participant showing up at the meeting point with unsuitable equipment (especially shoes) due to the risk of injury!
