We hike along a chestnut alley that is a natural landmark. At the end of the alley we cross Mauthausener Straße road and the park and enjoy the view from the rondeau. We follow an alley back to Ennsegg Castle and cross the courtyard. Having arrived on the other side we take a left turn and follow Basteigasse road. We get back to the town square via Stiegengasse path.
