The starting point for this circular walk is the free parking in the hamlet Winklen. At the beginning you walk the street direction Unterried. Immediately after the first houses turn right and follow the signs to Wurzberg-Alm. There, the flat hiking trail leads to the districts Unterried, Lehn, and Oberried. From far away already visible is the Pestkapelle which drones on a hill. The Pestkapelle is one of the power spots in Längenfeld. That's why we take the slightly ascending path there. After a short breather the way back leads along the floodplain (the Ache) back to Winklen.
Since the path is mostly flat, it is also suitable for children.

Tips, hints and links
POI - Pestkapelle
Since plague victims were not allowed to be buried on the other side of the river in the 17th century, in 1661 the small filial church of the Holy Trinity was built - locals call the church also Bichlkirche or Pestkapelle - in the middle of the forest on Kropfbühel.
