Pilgrimages on the Chapel Path
Pertill Chapel

Hiking on the Chapel Path is all about fitness: for the body, mind and soul. From the parish church in Grossarl, this pilgrimage path takes you via trails and footpaths in the direction to Hüttschlag, then on to the valley head (ca. 17 km in total).

As you make your way towards Hüttschlag, you will pass the Laireiting, Bichl, Figler, Griesbichl, Neuhof and Schappach chapels, finally coming to the church in Hüttschlag. Then continue towards to the valley head itself, this time passing the Wolfau, Karteis, Maurach and Hubertus chapels. Your pilgrimage ends at Pertill chapel, located at the valley head of Hüttschlag.

Hubertus Chapel
At the first 10 chapels along this hiking path, each of the 10 commandments has been reformulated into a good wish intended to accompany you along your (life’s) journey. Which is the reason this path has also been nicknamed the “Path of God Wishes”. Your hike concludes at the Pertill chapel at the valley head of Hüttschlag. This chapel was built in thanks for the fortunate return of soldiers from World War II. It is also intended to inspire hikers to be thankful.

Aside from the “Path of Good Wishes”, which was actually created by the owner of Hotel Almrösl Helga Zraunig in reference to Christianity’s “10 Commandments”, you will also walk along the “Path of Contemplation”. In addition to the good wishes, Thomas Schwarzenberger (at that time the parson in Grossarl and Hüttschlag) formulated short texts intended to stimulate and incite people to think.

Tip: Even you will presumably follow both “paths” at once, we suggest dividing your thoughts between the two different theme areas. Our personal tip: First meditate in the chapel itself, then take each good wish with you on the way to the next.

Informationen Chapel Path

The Chapel Path extends for a total distance of ca. 17.5 km. The description contained in our brochure “Chapel Hiking Path in the Valley of Mountain Huts” takes you from Grossarl to Hüttschlag and the valley head there; in other words, in a north-to-south direction. Naturally, you can also take this pilgrimage in the opposite direction. You can set out from Hüttschlag and hike half of the path in the direction of Grossarl, then the second half towards the valley head. Signs for the Chapel Path feature a chapel set in green countryside with the rising sun in the background. You will find this symbol close to major trail junctions, insuring you stay on the right path.
