Dear all Explorers,

We hope all of you passed through the COVID-19 crisis situation safely and securely.
As the COVID situation now a bit under control, at least in Austria, I thought of kick-starting the Vienna explorers group with a hiking event to Schöckl.

Schöckl is a mountain in the Austrian state of Styria. It is about 15 km north of Graz, the capital of Styria.

We will follow the hiking loop around Schöckl. Distance: Approx 9 km
Elevation: Protected content
Difficulty: Moderate

The specialty of the Schöckl lies in its exposed location on the southern edge of the Alps and its relative height to the adjoining Graz Basin and Leibnitzer Feld. It consists mainly of mica schist and limestone.

If you don't wish to hike, then there is also the possibility of going up in the mountain through the cable car.

We will meet at Protected content - lower station, easily reachable by car or Vienna Hbf-> Graz Hbf (Train), then Graz Hbf-> Schöckl cableway lower station (Tram 1, Bus Protected content .

I will be looking forward to seeing all the hiking enthusiast.

Thanks and regards
