Hiking in a healthy climate
Experience the ideal combination of a beach and mountain holiday in the Nature Park Weissensee, Carinthia.
Explore the mountains surrounding Lake Weissensee on 200km of marked hiking trails leading you up to altitudes ranging from 930m to 2300m directly from the villages on the lakeshore. From flat walking routes around the lake to rocky mountain tops, from lush green forests to soft mountain pastures – the Nature Park Weissensee guarantees plenty of variety for your hiking holiday.
Our 9 themed hiking trails leading through lake and mountain settings also promise unforgettable hiking tours. Visit for instance the "Wunderbaum" (miracle tree) – a fir tree older than 180 years with particularly impressive dimensions, explore the glass-making history of the region or learn all about the Weissensee legend along the fairy-tale lakeshore route.
If you prefer walking in a group just join a guided hike with one of our local guides. Beautiful mountain hikes await you.
You will find plenty of lovely spots for taking a break along the trails, and many huts situated on alpine pastures serve food and drink to tired travellers. And for those who prefer a more easy-going approach – take a boat trip across Lake Weissensee or use the Weissensee cable car to make your hike a little easier.
