Location and landscape

The Wieserhöhe belongs to the most easterly pre-alpine ridge of the Mostviertel , a foothill of the Ybbstal Alps . It is located 8 kilometers southwest of St. Peter in der Au and 9 kilometers southeast of the city of Steyr . The ridge leads eastwards over the Kürnberg  ( 711  m above sea level ), with the place of the same name, to the Plattenberg  ( 750  m above sea level , with the Elisabethwarte). The ridge runs north-west via Badhof to the Daxberg (approx.  530  m ) and then out into the Alpine foothills.

The Zaucha rises to the northeast at Grub and flows over the Url to the Ybbs . To the southwest lies the Kleinramingtal , in which the Ramingbach , a tributary of the Enns , forms the border with Upper Austria. In the north, the Erla rises near Badhof , like the Ybbs and Enns, a tributary of the Danube . The triple point of these three catchment areas ( ) is on the western hill of the Wieserhöhe.


The farms on the Wieserhöhe belong to Kürnberg (KG Kirnberg).

The mountain offers a delightful view. The high road Behamberg - Kürnberg (L 6258) is part of the Moststraße tourist route , which runs right through the Mostviertel.
