    The water pipe route follows the high spring water pipe, which has supplied the city of Vienna with fresh tap water since the 19th century. The hike through the wild and romantic Höllental is also suitable for children. The starting point is at the train station in Hirschwang an der Rax. From there it goes over the Schwarza and past the Henriettenkapelle into the forest.The rest of the way runs in the shade of large trees and steadily along the water, so you can walk the 1st Vienna Water Pipeline Path even on hot summer days. Over time, smaller and larger caves have formed in the rugged rock faces, which you can explore - ideally equipped with a headlamp. You make your way through the idyllic Höllental via ladders and stairs. Alongside the path, rest areas and pebble beaches invite you to take a break or cool off.Still further north you hike along the crystal clear water of the Schwarza and enjoy great views of the Rax. After a good five kilometers you will reach your destination in Kaiserbrunn, where you can finally visit the flood pipe museum. From Kaiserbrunn you either hike the same way back to the starting point or you take the bus to Hirschwang.
