A) Waldschule Alpl

In 1902, Peter Rosegger launched a donation campaign to found the Waldschule in Alpl and to counteract the rural exodus. In 1975, the school was discontinued. After the renovation of the building, it has been run since 1982 as a school museum, in which the school room and the "Roseggerzimmer" can be visited in their original state.

B) Rosegger exhibit in St. Kathrein am Hauenstein

The Church of St. Kathrein was the nearest church to Kluppeneggerhof and part of Peter Rosegger's numerous childhood memories.

C) Rosegger's tomb

Peter Rosegger's tomb is located in the cemetery in Krieglach. His wish was: "I want a simple grave, like every farmer from Alpl. A wooden cross with the name on it. If, after fifty years, you still know who that is, that is enough; if not, then leave me in peace. "

D) Rosegger park & memorial

In 1937, the "Roseggerbund Waldheimat" and the market town of Krieglach built this park with the sculpture "When I was still a Waldbauernbub ..." by the artist Paul Kassecker. The park was completely refurbished in 2007-2008 and offers quiet seating and a children's playground.
