Pfenningberg – the Pfenning Mountain
Reaching a height of 616m, the Pfenningberg is the hiking and recreation centre of Steyregg. It is the most striking mountain in the Linz area, the local mountain of the Danube. It used to be called the “High Corner” because it forces the Danube to make a sharp turn. 80% of the Steyregg municipal area is on the Pfenningberg massif.
A number of myths surround the Pfenningberg. Dr E. Schiffkorn describes it as wreathed in legends and assumes that it was a centre for primaeval religious activities before the Christianization of the Danube area.
The Danube Hiking Trail “The Steyregger Loop”
Hardly any other region is as varied as the Danube region in Upper Austria. Ever-changing landscapes accompany the hiker on the Danube Trail from Passau to Linz to Grein and offer breathtaking views and insights into a spectacular country.
The trail leads from Passau to St. Nikola and past the northern boundary of Steyregg. Marked by numerous hills and shady forests, diversity and variety characterize the area. If you leave the Danube trail, you can walk through the entire municipality on the so-called “Steyregger Loop” before returning to the main trail.
