The name of the path comes from the glassworks era of this region. In 1719, the Schlägl monastery built the Schwarzenberg glassworks, which was in operation for 30 years. 17 people were employed here to produce crystal glass, ruby and other coloured glass. This glass as well as hollow glass, bull's-eye panes and pearls were sold to Bad Ischl, Ottensheim and Passau, Krumau, Vienna and Hungary. Exhibition on glass production in the Kulturhaus Ulrichsberg.
