HIKING & NORDIC WALKING

Just Walk

Just get out and enjoy is the idea behind our hiking and nordic walking offerings. Here you can discover at your own speed and experience the intense joy that comes from meandering up and down around the mountain. The Gerlitzen has stood as the local place to hike for generations of hikers.

The ideal place for big and small, young and old, casual and serious hikers. A hiker’s paradise with mountain flair, a beautiful place to find your own way - and to take it. 146km of well-marked trails through Carinthia’s most beautiful mountain viewpoint guide you from hut to hut or down to the valley. Where your feet have always wanted to take you. Families will be happy to know that many of these trails can accommodate a babystroller, and no worries: there are almost no traffic jams up here!

So, even our smallest guests can enjoy the fresh air and we don’t have to hear a word of complaint.

Guided Hiking Tours
Free guided hiking tours take place every Wednesday in the summer months from the beginning of June to the middle of September. Information at the reception desk.

SEEK OUT UNCHARTERED TERRITORIES - BY WAY OF WALKING!

Everyone talks about the benefits of walking at higher altitudes and it seems like everyone would be doing it, but we do not believe that’s the case or else the mountain would be full of passionate walkers. They’re right that hiking at 1,500m above sea level will get your blood pumping along while breathing in the fresh mountain air.

The altitude does wonders for your circulation and red blood cells and you will be rewarded for your hard work hiking high above sea level. It is no coincidence that professional athletes often do altitude training, for example cycling teams incorporate this into their training before the Tour de France. For something more practical, start your hike at Middle Station 3 and follow the well-marked Nordic walking trails of varying difficulty. There are trails for every level.

Nordic Walking
In the summer months from the beginning of June until the middle of September the Gerlitzen offers several Nordic Walking trails around the middle station/Kanzelhöhe at 1,440m above sea level for your health and fitness training.

You can find more information about the trails here.
