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 (Rhododendron) that bloom into a sea of flowers, and mountain fauna that roam freely on the nature reserve. There is also plenty to enjoy when you stop to catch your breath: The sunny terraces of Carinthia’s alpine taverns invite you to rest your weary legs and savour a hearty meal, naturally from locally sourced produce.
