Hiking in Carinthia

The impressive mountains can be savored almost every season. When the meadows are covered with colorful flowers, the mountains adorn themselves in their most beautiful garments in the summer and are littered with pink flowering alpine bushes, yellow-orange arnica and numerous medicinal herbs and you enter an incredible world of fauna and flora, then you know – it is a paradise. Start directly from Velden for leisurely walks or one of many wonderful hiking tours such as the Wörthersee Circular Hiking Trail or the Alpe-Adria-Trail. The wide range has something suitable for everyone. Do not forget to pack a snack. The backpack packed with Carinthian delicacies such as bacon, sausages, black bread, gherkes, apple, cake & more and the trip can begin. Numerous alpine huts spoil with an extensive and colorful Brettljause, Germknödel, Kaiserschmarrn, Wienerschnitzel or a tasty soup. In the winter months, the mountain calls for snowshoeing, sledging, special skiing and snowboarding experiences as well as numerous touring routes. Afterwards you can enjoy a good night's drink in the urban Rocket Restaurant & Bistro.

Velden am Wörthersee is the geographical center of Carinthia, if not Austria at the same time. Surrounded by beautiful numerous lakes and mountains, the state in the very south of Austria, on the border with Italy and Slovenia, makes it a very special magical place.
