Martin Zeiller Trail

The Martin Zeiller Trail was opened in 1989 to honour the 400th birthday of the author Martin Zeiller. It was designed by the sculptor Alfred Schlösser from Krottendorf - Gaisfeld.


The Martin Zeiller Trail is freely accessible to all. The German-language pamphlet Fidus Achates, oder GETREUER REISGEFERT and the book Martin Zeiller, Ein Gelehrtenleben (Martin Zeiller: Life of a Scholar) are available from the town hall in Ranten. In 2003, Schlösser went on to create Ranten’s town fountain, which can be admired at the Martin Zeiller Garten.
