Hiking trail "Biotop Schloss Rosenegg"

Start of the tour is at the municipal office in Bürs, past the Martinskirche and along the Obergasse to the turnoff into the Schassweg. Here the path branches off to the right. Via the forest road it now goes briefly uphill in the direction of Schasswiesen - small wooden huts - and further to the biotope. Follow the forest path back to Rosenegg Castle. In front of the entrance gate of the ruins, follow the forest path to the right and hike downhill for a short distance. At the bottom the path joins the Hinterburgweg and you return via the Werkstraße to the municipal office.

Alternative way back: Choose the same route as the ascent.
