From the Brandis Waalweg in Oberlana take trail no. 1 a (above the Church of St. Margarethen) or from the Brandis Waalweg in Niederlana take trail no. 1 (above the Museum of Fruit Cultivation) towards Foiana, along Brünnlerweg through deciduous woodland and fruit plantations past the Aicholz and Mair am Gatter farms. Starting from the center of the village of Foiana the route continues towards Badlweg (access behind Foiana Farming Museum) along the shady forest trail no. 10 to the Völlaner Badl hotel.

The route runs downhill to the Wittmer Hof farm and then continues down the slope to the Obermayrhof farm, then along trail no. 8 a to the foot of St. Hippolyt hill with wonderful views of the Narauner Weiher pond. To reach the unique viewing point and the Romanesque church we have to overcome a somewhat strenuous last few meters, as the trail is rather rugged and steep. The return journey is via trail no. 8 past the Talmühle café to Foiana. Bus route no. 214 runs approx. every hour from Foiana to Lana.
