You hike from chapel to chapel from Grossarl to Hüttschlag and further to the valleyend - this is a little different hike.

Hiking along the Chapel Path is not only a matter of hiking but also of relaxation for the mind and soul, as each of the chapels has one of the ten commandments reworded into a good wish, which should accompany each of us on our (path of) life)

For each chapel there is a short text and a good wish. The text should stimulate reflection in the chapel, the desire should be taken on the (path of) life. Thus, one actually goes two ways along the Chapel Path: The path "of reflection," which was designed by our former pastor Mag. Thomas Schwarzenberger, and the "Path of the 10 good wishes," which was designed by Helga Zraunig.

The last chapel was built as a thank you for a happy return from World War II.

Unfortunately, the wishes and the guide is in German.
