Route: Leutasch – Buchen – (Mösern)
Walking time: approx. 45 minutes (Leutasch - Buchen), approx. 1.5 hours from Leutasch to Mösern
This walk takes you along a small stretch of the Way of St. James. Starting at the carpark Rauthhütte, it takes you in just about three quarters of an hour out of the Leutasch Valley via the picturesque little 'Katzenloch' valley to Buchen, where you are rewarded by a beautiful view down into the Upper Inn Valley. After crossing the main road, head 250 m towards inn Gasthaus Ropferstub’m and you will find the nature-orientated Kneipp area near the Olympic cross-country ski trail. Known as the Buchener Kneippbadl (Buchen’s little Kneipp bath), its walk-though water way is filled with dextrorotatory drinking water from the Ropferstub’m’s own natural water supply. Three stone basins, a round wooden water-treading bowl, 2 wooden arm basins, detailed information
on Kneipp applications and a simple barefoot trail invite you for a spot of 'Kneipping' in a pleasant sunny spot amidst a mixed native forest of beech trees, spruce trees and fir trees. St. James Way hikers can pray in the Ropferstub’m restaurant’s little private chapel and families will enjoy the mountain farming museum, the deer park and the nice sunny playground with views down into the valley. A special feature is the 'forest amphitheatre', where recorded classical music is played three times a week, inviting you to enjoy an hour of reflection with views across to the Hohe Munde mountain and down into the valley.
Tip for hikers: a beautiful hiking path takes you along The Way of St. James to Mösern and to the Möserer See lake via the golf course and the Lottensee lake (approx. 1.5 hours) or via the holiday camp and the lake Wildmoossee to Seefeld (approx. 2 hours).
