Sport in the gently rolling Nockberge Mountains

The ideal landscape for your sporting ambitions


The Nockberge Mountains of Carinthia are playfully known as the ‘Nocky Mountains’ and are famous for their shape and nature. The gentle ridges with tree-free blossoming meadows are particularly ideal for walking, hiking, Nordic walking, biking or simply enjoying the fantastic views.

The 1,000 m altitude location where Bad Kleinkirchheim and the thermal spa hotel Ronacher are based makes this the ideal place for sporting activities in summer when the weather is often too hot in other areas. And we, the Ronacher family, are on hand to help.

Sports holidays in Carinthia in summer

Whether golf, tennis, mountain biking, jogging, hiking or Nordic walking – the sports opportunities on offer in the region are virtually endless. There is something to suit every taste and ambition. Various events also substantiate these sporting offers. The cycling marathon through the Nockberge Mountains takes place each July and the golf tournaments present a sporting challenge and social highlight. The fact that the Davis Cup has been hosted in Bad Kleinkirchheim also attests to the quality of the region’s tennis facilities.

Winter holidays in Bad Kleinkircheim

The diversity of the opportunities on offer is also one of the strengths of Bad Kleinkirchheim in winter. Over 100 km of ideally prepared slopes with snow-making facilities attract many skiers. Winter walks, cross-country and skating are also offered. And here at the Ronacher, we are always on hand to help with whatever activities you choose.




It is not without good reason that numerous international football teams come here to train each summer. This high-altitude training is particularly valued by the athletes. The players practise in Bad Kleinkirchheim to get fit for the new season.
