Kirchberg am Wechsel, Austria

5 June 2017

An easy hike from Kirchberg am Wechsel with a visit to the Hermannshöhle (limestone cave), then via Rams and the Kernstockwarte back to Kirchberg.

First a look around at the pretty (and very yellow) monastery in Kirchberg.

Then the tour through the Hermannshöhle. Always a treat, seeing one of those limestone caves...

Coming out of the cave again, and continuing on.

He'll make it, one day...

Wild strawberries!

A pretty blue house in the middle of nowhere.

A spider carrying its offspring along.

Then a last short but steep climb...

...up to the Kernstockwarte, on a hill above Kirchberg.

That's Kirchberg am Wechsel down there, with its yellow monastery.

A view of the Schneeberg and Raxalpe, which are mostly covered in clouds.

And then all the way back down to Kirchberg.

A panoramic view from the Kernstockwarte.
