A paradise for hikers
In which city can you set off on a hike directly from the main square? The Kreuzbergl local recreation area is an excellent starting point for shorter hikes.
Go on a hike through unspoiled scenery in the Bodental Valley. Just 30 minutes’ drive away towards Slovenia, you can hike through a hidden high valley filled with adventure. Here what is probably the most beautiful valley end in Carinthia awaits you, the fairy tale meadow, with a wondrous mountain backdrop.
The Klagenfurter Hütte lies at the heart of the Karawanken and offers a breathtaking view, hearty cuisine and well-marked hiking trails of all levels of difficulty. Scale the surrounding peaks and then enjoy the relaxed chalet atmosphere.
To the north of Klagenfurt, the historic hills of Central Carinthia await explorers with a thirst for knowledge. To the east, it is not far to the gently sloping Saualpe. To the south, the craggy summits of the Karawanken call, and even around Lake Wörthersee there are some lovely hiking options.
So it is clear that Klagenfurt is the ideal place for a hiking holiday in Carinthia. In the evening here you can enjoy the buzzing city life, and during the day you can scale the lonely summits. In summer you can cool off in the lake after hiking, and in spring and autumn you can follow your hiking tour with a little shopping tour.
