Hiking fun in the mountains around the Ronacher
The special shape of the Nockberge Mountains and clear mountain air make hiking in Bad Kleinkirchheim a really special experience. The panorama is breathtaking – in fact with hikes of any level of difficulty. The flora and fauna are also not without their attraction. For example, the alpine rose blooms in the Nockberge Mountains, immersing them in a sea of dusky pink flowers. You can also enjoy cosy breaks in one of the many catered mountain huts that invite you to chill out. You can satisfy even the biggest appetite here with local farmers' products.
Guided hikes and insider tips
The senior boss Helga Ronacher and our hiking pro and activity guide Peter Auer go on easy to more challenging hikes in and around the Nockberge biosphere reserve with you at least 3 times a week. You are sure to love highlights such as the sunrise hike with singing bowl, the full moon hike or mass up at the peak with mountain picnic on the Kaiserburg. The mountain pros at Hotel Ronacher will also give you route tips for your own hike at any time and recommend the most beautiful spots in the area to you.
Hiking trails and marked tours around Bad Kleinkirchheim
Six nock/art routes lead through the Nockberge biosphere reserve and Bad Kleinkirchheim valley. If you follow the hiking suggestions you will discover the region's entire range of scenery and landscapes on the most beautiful trails. From a leisurely walk on the flat to a tour from peak to peak, there's the perfect route for any aspiration. Works by renowned artists surprise you along the trails and invite you to see things from a different perspective.
The nock/art hiking trails can be perfectly combined with stages of the Alps-Adriatic Trail. The long-distance trail links up the three regions of Carinthia, Slovenia and Friuli Venezia Giulia over 38 stages in total. From the foot of Austria's highest mountain, the Großglockner, through the most stunning Carinthian mountain and lake scenery, the trail leads close to where the three countries, Austria, Italy and Slovenia cross and then on to the Adriatic Sea to Trieste without any major detours.
Summer cable cars in Bad Kleinkirchheim
The Brunnachbahn and Kaiserburgbahn cable cars run in the summer. You can get to a hiking area full of flat peaks, leisurely hiking trails and forest trails with the Brunnachbahn cable car. Ideal for hiking but also for a relaxing walk and catching some sun up the mountain.
It's just a 10-minute walk to the peak from the Kaiserburgbahn cable car top station. The top station is also the perfect starting point for mountain pasture hikes and challenging hikes to the peaks, for example the Wöllaner Nock.
