In and with nature!

Because it’s just beautiful outside. No matter what time of year.

Let’s bike in spring, swim in summer, hike in autumn and go sledding in winter.


Just opposite the Gipfelhaus is the historic pilgrimage church of Magdalensberg. It is the starting point for the Vierbergelauf, the destination of the Hemma Pilgrimage Trail and many pilgrimages. Today it is mainly used for weddings, baptisms but also for concerts or special masses.

Only one kilometer walk below the summit house there is a museum that will make every archaeologist’s heart beat faster. The Magdalensberg Archaeological Park is one of the largest and best preserved excavations in Carinthia and was the capital of the Noricum Empire in the past.

Hochosterwitz Castle is known as one of the most impressive medieval castles in Austria and a major tourist attractions.

  • Carinthia is the land of lakes. As diverse as the bathing lakes are, they all have one thing in common: their pure water and comfortably warm temperatures that climb above 25 degrees. Many of the lakes reach pleasant temperatures as early as May and maintain them up until the end of September. Lake Wörthersee, Lake Klopeinersee and Lake Faaker See are just some examples of refreshing get aways.
