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.
