Pack your rucksack, lace up your hiking boots and away you go!
In the countryside around Klagenfurt, numerous mountains, forests and idyllic locations are just waiting to be explored. Of all your options, Klagenfurt’s own local mountain – the Kreuzbergl – is easiest to reach. This recreation area close to town is an ideal base for shorter hikes, for example to the top of the Zillhöhe, where you are rewarded by wonderful views of Lake Wörthersee.
If you are really ambitious, however, you might wish to circumnavigate the Wörthersee via the Wörthersee Hiking Loop: about 55 km in total length, the terrain is hilly with a number of steep climbs and descents (elevations range from 440 to 850 m above sea level, with ca. +/- 2200 meters in gains/drops), constantly accompanied by marvelous views of the Wörthersee as well as the Karawanken mountains. Further information about hiking in Carinthia is available from Wörthersee Tourism.
