The Kaiserburg mountain & Bad Kleinkirchheim’s magnificent weather
The Kaiserburg cable car ensures comfortable skiing. But Bad Kleinkirchheim is really popular in the winter due to its magnificent weather. Whilst the heavy cold winter air sinks into the valleys and basins and more and more fog spreads over them, the spa town shines in the brightest sunshine as the mountains lie above the fog line. How lucky that there is this place where you can cheat all the gloominess!
Tip: Ski down almost as far as Lake Millstatt with the Lake Millstatt 4-man chair lift with stunning panoramic view and the wonderfully wide Langalm run!
