This tranquil hike leads you from Pietralba/Weissenstein to the hermitage of St. Leonhard, a small church, situated in a lonely wood near the monastery of Pietralba. At this quiet place, and long time ago, Leonhard has found a small sculpture of the blessed virgin, after being saved from an extremely dangerous situation.
