    Spirituality as far as the eye can see - this is what stage 5 of the Hemma pilgrimage route promises. And today you cover the shortest stage with 16 kilometers. This gives you time to sightsee and relax. You leave Murau and walk in the direction of Laßnitzbach. Then it goes first up to the Taler Eck at 1,642 meters and then - downhill - to St. Lambrecht in the Zirbitzkogel-Grebenzen Nature Park.The place St. Lambrecht was probably already settled by the Celts, later by the Romans and for a while also by Slavic peoples, until they were largely displaced by immigrants of German origin in the time of Charlemagne. In 1458 St. Lambrecht was promoted to market by Emperor Friedrich.The founding of the St. Lambrecht monastery by the family took place before 1076. A document from 1103 seals the extensive foundation. The building stock certainly goes back to the eleventh century. Due to frequent raids, the monastery was expanded as a fortress in the 15th century. The monastery building is a masterpiece by the Italian builder Domenico Sciassia and was built in the Renaissance style from 1640.Inside the building is the monastery museum with its art-historical and folklore exposita as well as the bird collection of Father Blasius Hanf. The collegiate church is the main church of the Benedictine monastery of St. Lambrecht. Originally the Karner served as a parish church in the cemetery, later the Peterskirche, which is located opposite on the bastion of the monastery courtyard.In St. Lambrechts you can end the evening comfortably and get in the moral mood for the penultimate day of your pilgrimage. Perhaps you will also find enough peace to briefly go into yourself and recapitulate the many experiences.
