Short via ferrata (C / D) near Seebenstein. The parking lot is located in Gleißenfeld. Somewhat exposed route guidance and therefore recommended as a practice trail for advanced beginners who want to venture into loftier heights. Evening climbers will be rewarded with a fantastic sunset when the weather is right. A worthwhile alternative for the descent is over the Sollgraben. The path leads over a forest road in a leisurely slope to the parking lot and can also be used.

The legend of the fall of the Turks.
It was on a late summer evening in 1683 when someone knocked very violently on the front door of one of the vineyard houses on the Hochrieß. A girl opened the door and saw a group of Turkish soldiers in front of her. Pale with horror, the girl ran across the courtyard into the stable and out the stable door onto the Hochrieß. There was thick fog there. A Turk had spotted the fleeing girl and was rushing after him on his horse. He almost got there. Then, in fear of death, the girl slipped into a bush near the steep slope near the Hochrieß and had disappeared from the Turkish rider. He continued to blast on his horse in the fog and fell over the steep slope into the depths. Since then, this place has been called the “Turks Fall”. The “person” that the Turks chased up to the fall of the Turks was on the farm Weinberg 3, Sturmlechner, Dirn.Taken from the Purgstaller themed trail folder, published by Gerhard Punz, 2009
