This stroll takes about an hour and starts at the Tourist Office in Seefeld. The Pfarrhügel hill in Seefeld is an attraction for young and old: this is where Seefeld’s newly built Stations of the Cross trail (open since 2000) begins, with its 14 stations. It starts at St. Oswald’s Church, just across from the Tourist Office, and leads over the Pfarrhügel, where at the stone circle it comes to an end. With the help of these 23-ton boulders placed in a certain arrangement reflecting a constellation of stars, the Last Supper is symbolically depicted. According to an idea of the writer Winfried Werner Linde, this power spot at the highest point of the Pfarrhügel is meant to be a peaceful meeting place for people of all world religions. Information panels on the hill provide details. This hill is a special experience for kids - they love to climb up on the boulders or pick flowers from the dense flora on the hill, or simply tumble about as the urge takes them, while the adults sit on a bench and enjoy nature in its gentlest form. Anyone interested can also take part in the cultural stroll (see description below). From the Pfarrhügel hill, the stroll continues to Seefeld’s Lake Wildsee, which can be seen from above. We walk down the hill on the lake side and take the path on the right shore of the lake. At Café Sonja, on the left shore, we enter a tiny wood, a favourite playground for squirrels and birds. A nut vending machine there enables children to feed the animals and observe them from close up. On the other side of the lake, you arrive at Restaurant Strandperle and a children’s playground, inviting the kids to play on the swings, slide, etc. Walk past Hotel Seespitz, back to the pedestrian zone, and to the point of departure, Seefeld’s Tourist Office.
