Hiking in Carinthia, Austria

Enjoy hiking holidays in Bad Kleinkirchheim

Helga Ronacher and our professional mountain guide will take your on a breathtaking hiking tour (levels range from easy to advanced) through the Nockberge National Park. Here you will have an opportunity to experience the sunrise in the Alps, alpine festivities or a picnic on Kaiserburg Mountain.

The unique rock formation of the Nockberge mountains and its fresh alpine air ensure hiking in Bad Kleinkirchheim will always be a special experience. The panoramic views along the trails are absolutely stunning. Hikers will encounter fascinating fauna such as alpine roses that bloom into a sea of flowers. The sunny terraces of Carinthia’s alpine taverns invite you to rest your weary legs and savour a hearty meal from locally sourced produce.


Nock art

nock/art, the “hikeable” art project, featuring extraordinary mountain trails.  Landscape artistry is reinterpreted and skilfully incorporated into the scenery, which is adapted in a targeted manner to draw attention to unique aspects of the cultural landscape. 

The attractive arrangement makes use of local materials.  For example, oversized wood furniture items create special places for meditation and contemplation, shaping communication and exchanges of ideas.  Let nock/art inspire you.

Following the ALPE ADRIA TRAIL

Our head waiter Mr. Kurt

The Alpe-Adria-Trail connects the three regions Carinthia, Slovenia and Friuli Venezia Giulia on a total of 43 stages. The wide path leads from the foot of Austria\\\'s highest mountain, the Grossglockner, the most beautiful Carinthian mountain and sea areas and without major detours in the vicinity of the crossing point of three countries: Austria, Italy, Slovenia and on to the Adriatic to Muggia.

During themed weeks “Following the Alpe Adria Trail” we hike with you over the beautiful Millstätter-Alm pasture to such viewpoints as Granat-Tor, Rosennock summit, Zunder walls and the Falkert.

Hiking guides, transfers, picnics ... we organise everything for you.
Dates: 1st & 2nd week of September
