Krieglach and Alpl are the central municipalities in Peter Rosegger's Waldheimat - his wooded homeland.

The museums connected with Peter Rosegger, the Rosegger museum in Krieglach, the Waldschule (forest school) and the house in Alpl where he was born invite to visit them and lead us back into the past.

The annual Rosegger week and the play 'Jakob der Letzte' in the open air theatre on the area of Rosegger's birthplace, or the atmospheric Advent gala honouring the famous author, establish a connection with Peter Rosegger and are well-known far beyond the border.

Numerous trails lead to the most beautiful summits of the region Waldheimat. The water- and nature adventure land with its gravel pond and natural lake are pure joy for sporting activities.
In winter, Waldheimat offers skiing areas for families, with ideal conditions for beginners, but also enjoyable for experienced skiers.
