Rosary Walking Trail
Under the command of Capt. Friedl Berger, the village of Reith’s 'Schützenkompanie', a traditional,
historical rifleman’s association, created the rosary walking trail as a piece of cultural heritage to
mark the commemorative year 2009. Created with great diligence and care by the men of the
'Schützen' association, the rosary walking trail, with its five wayside shrines and resting benches
of larch wood, is intended to inspire prayer and reflection. Created using Lafarge cement, the 15
relief plaques, which depict the joyous, sorrowful and glorious mysteries of the rosary, were designed
and painted by local artist Annemarie Beiler from Inzing. Starting to the east of Reith parish
church, the rosary trail branches off into the woods at Bichlweg and follows a bubbling brook past
the wayside shrines up to the Frau Häusl Chapel. If you continue on past the little waterfall just
after the chapel, the path takes you back to the starting point. Sturdy footwear is recommended.
