Active holidays in the Nockberge region

Diving into the originality

The Nockberge Biosphere Park gets your body clock back on track pretty quickly. Because biosphere translates as habitat. In the case of the Nockberge mountains, this means gentle alpine pastures, peaks and valleys populated by a variety of animals and plants. Marmots and alpine salamanders say goodnight to each other here and are just as much at home here as the Swiss stone pine or the Speik, which can only be found here. Whether hiking, biking, walking and inhaling the mountain air - everything is possible.

Carving, cross-country skiing and more

Sights around the 4-star Hotel Almrausch

The holiday resort Bad Kleinkirchheim in Carinthia

First and foremost is the church of St. Kathrein, whose Gothic construction dates back to 1492. The set St. Kathrein spring is located in the crypt (basement) of the slender towering church with its colorful frescoes on the outside of the apse and wooden canopy. Many locals and holidaymakers are always drawn to the spring, also known as the "Augenbründl", to take advantage of the healing properties of the water. In the church you can admire a beautiful gothic carved altar from the early 16th century. The bell is also of venerable age: it dates back to 1469.
