View of Klausen and the Eisack river from the Dürerstein Stone


Dürerstein stone

From Albrecht Dürer’s feather to chalcography: Along the walking path with beautiful views you can walk in the footsteps of the artist.

One wrote the year 1494 as the young artist Albrecht Dürer made a stop in Klausen during his Italy journey.
Today a beautiful walk leads to these slopes from Klausen. From this promising place the painter drew the city of Klausen. The result of its feather was lost later, but a copper engraving Das große Glück (the great fortune) is delivered. Klausen calls itself also the Small Dürer Town. Who wants to visit this place, goes today to the Dürerstein.

Hike to Dürerstein stone
Dürerstein stone
Start at the parish church of Klausen (parking possibility at the northern city entrance or next to the fire station), cross the Andreas bridge and follow the hiking sign No. 5 in the direction of Albions. Go through the Seebegg underpass, where the Dürerstein is signposted for the first time. The path branches off to the right and after a few hundred meters you reach the Dürerstein stone lookout point with seating, which invites you to linger and enjoy. The way back is the same as on the way there.
Walking time: about 30 minutes

Hiking suggestion: to Lajen or via Albions to Ansitz Lusenegg
