Distance Travelled

Approximately 12½ km (8 miles)


I walked southwards out of Linz, revisiting the Church dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus on the way. I mostly followed the path next to the trainline through the southern suburbs of Linz, stopping to visit a Evangelical Methodist Church and the “Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter in Linz”, which is also a Community Centre named after Saint Florian, the patron saint of Linz.

I carried on through the Ebelsberg to my accommodation on the outskirts of the small town of Asten, where I discovered a small chapel as I walked through the Ipfdorf industrial estate.
