The hike starts at the St. Johann church at the eastern entrance to the town with parking area and bus stop. From this old hospice church, a hiking trail leads up to St. Michael's Church (parish museum) and the parish church of St. Blaise. The hike continues along the Tellahöfe street, then turn left through the forest to St. Martins chapel.
