Here are some of the most beautiful mountain tours in the Carinthian Nock Mountains:

Family walk from Grundalm-Pfannnock
From the Grundalm you go along the hiking trailto the Wolitzenhütte. From here, the route runs uphill via the Alpine meadows to the Unterer Bocksattel. There the route leads to the Pfannseen lakes and to the Pfannnock (2,254 m). The route back takes you from the Unterer Bocksattel around the ‘Rote Burg’ and back  to the Grundalm, where ‘Silva Magica’ can be found: an exceptional nature park where the secrets of nature are shared with the visitors.

Predigerstuhl circular walk
You start at the Erlacherhaus and then you go to the Feldhütte (1,758 m). From here, it passes through an area of larch and mountain pine trees, climbing gently up to the Rosennock/Nassbodensee turn-off. Here you have a wonderful view towards the Kleiner Rosennock. You will pass the Nassbodensee and the last sector to the Predigerstuhl is a little bit more exhausting, but there you can enjoy a fantastic view of the Julian Alps. After a small  break you go down to the Erlacher Bockhütte and then you can go back to the start.

Circular walk to the Falkert
This walk starts in the parking place at the museum Alte Schmiede in St. Oswald which offers insight into working life in times gone by. The hiking trail leads along a road to the Falkerthaus. Then you will pass the Lärchenhütte before the route leads to the Hundsfeldscharte and the finish is the Falkert (2,308 m). The trip back follows to the Tanzboden and back to the start.

Walk along the lake Millstätter See
