The Spitzer Graben panoramic hiking trail has a lot to offer. On Sunday, wines, juices and water are served at the Zornberg chalet in the Zornberg vineyard. However, there is no toilet to relieve oneself.

The association MariVino consists of vineyards, apricot orchards and dining establishments from the Spitzer Graben and supports the Spitzer Graben Panoramic Hiking Trail - From wine to apricot. Most of this hiking trail runs along the same route as the World Heritage Trail.

A special highlight awaits hiking visitors at the Zornberg chalet. Here, every Sunday, one of the association’s members serves wines, juices and water as refreshments. In this way, we are creating a rest area with refreshments for the many hikers that use both hiking trails as well as the possibility for marketing regional products.

The problem of this special offer is the lack of available toilets, which is why the guests wander off into the surrounding vineyards and countryside. For this reason, a composting WC should be purchased and installed. Doing so will upgrade this rest area and support the direct marketing of local products.
