Hiking in Carinthia

Breath-taking panorama guaranteed

Hikers and mountain enthusiasts will enjoy a varied array of activities during their hiking holiday in Bad Kleinkirchheim. From the COOEE alpin Hotel Bad Kleinkirchheim you are in the midst of the most beautiful hiking tours in the Alps. New hiking challenges await you every day.
The Nock Mountains Biosphere Park, or the legendary Kaiserburg with its typical peculiar grey rock formations, are just a stone’s throw away. Here you find numerous one-day hiking trails, and also starting points for more demanding - perhaps even multi-day - hiking tours. Fans of mountaineering are also guaranteed to be highly satisfied. The Nock Mountains are one of the oldest mountain regions in Austria and are a paradise for diversity of animal species and plants. You are very likely to encounter cute marmots and enjoy the rare sight of plants such as the Speik, a strongly scented valerian unique to the area. Mountain lakes and mountain rivers provide refreshment.


Our guests can do whatever their heart desires - be it hiking over fragrant alpine meadows, a demanding climbing tour, or a multi-day mountain hike in a high alpine region. Long-distance hiking is very popular. The Alpe Adria Trail, with 43 stages over 750 km, leads through Austria, Italy and Slovenia. Guided ranger hikes are increasingly popular. An experienced mountain and hiking specialist can guide and support you, draw your attention to special places of interest, and bring you safely back down to the valley.
You can also make a strenuous hiking tour easier by taking the mountain railway. With the Brunnach National Railway and the Kaiserburg Railway you can reach the mountain top in no time, with zero effort and maximum comfort. Here you’ll also find the starting point for various hiking trails, such as the guided Speikwanderung, or a sunrise hike on the Falkert.

With the Region Card, the Hiking Thermal Spa Bus is available at no charge. The shuttle bus goes from Feld am See and stops at numerous bus stations in Bad Kleinkirchheim and St. Oswald.


Mountaineering is hungry and thirsty work, so it makes sense to stop for a hearty snack in one of the many rustic alpine huts - some of which have been used for centuries - along the hiking trails. The huts on the mountains around Bad Kleinkirchheim lure visitors with tasty offers, alpine charm and warm hospitality. Sunshine and fantastic views are also included. Anyone who has tasted their freshly home-baked bread, homemade bacon, and fresh buttermilk will be sure to return here for a hike.
