Hiking Variety.

On a hiking holiday in Carinthia, you can expect to find varied tours around Döbriach and Lake Millstatt, which often start direct from the door of the Familiengut Burgstaller. The terraced landscape offers old and young several opportunities to discover the beauty of the rolling Nockberge Mountains. At 600 metres of altitude, leisurely and often pram-friendly walks and walking tours await around the Lake Millstatt. A little further up above on the plateau, you can enjoy the panoramic lake view during beautiful indulgence hikes. Those who want more of a challenge, can head up to 2,000m to the peaks and into the alpine realm.

Mountains & Families

The gentle Nockberge Mountains on the Lake Millstatt are ideally suited for hiking adventures with the whole family. There's something to see and to be amazed by everywhere and the kids have so many opportunities to live out their curiosity and joy of discovery. There are leisurely hikes, suitable for prams, alpine lodge hikes and adventure trails, such as the treasure hint for the ruby-red garnet. Perhaps the family can even conquer their first peak on holiday in Carinthia! Everything is possible, if you are travelling with kids in the mountains. The altitude metres or kilometres climbed do not matter. It's the time together in the nature that counts. The shining joy in the kid's eyes.

Nockberge Biosphere Reserve

The Nockberge Biosphere Reserve was created in 2012 following the concept of UNESCO from the Nockberge National Park and today, together with the Lungau Biosphere Reserve, includes 184 km². Here, between the mountain and lake, countless animals and plants have found their valuable, protected habitat, whereby the Nockberge Mountains protect a unique diversity.  Marmots, various species of bird, butterflies or Alpine Salamander hand out here between the Swiss stone pine and the “Speik”, a wonderfully fragrant alpine herb, which only grows here. The Biosphere Reserve shows how nature and people can live in harmony with each other, in a beautiful way. A valuable natural and cultural landscape, that you can discover on your hikes and cycling tours .

Countless hiking trails in different difficulty levels wind their way gently through the Nockberge Biosphere Reserve and invite you to discover an impressive and diverse nature.

At several places, there are information boards and nature trails, so you can learn even more about the exciting and species-rich animal and plant world at the Lake Millstatt. Continue on to glistening lakes, through cool forests and up to traditional alpine inns, where some  cosy refreshments invite you to take a well-earned rest.
