Lake Ossiach – Gerlitzen Alp
The unique location between the Gerlitzen Alps and Ossiacher See promises holiday experiences between mountain and lake as well as cultural and culinary highlights.
The nearby Gerlitzen Kanzelbahn (cable railway) takes you up to just over 2,000 meters above sea level. Enjoy the beauty of Carinthia while hiking on wonderful trails. Did you know that the world-famous Alpe-Adria-Trail also crosses the Gerlitzen on its way to the Mediterranean Sea?
How can the countryside be better explored than by cycling? For nature lovers and families, we suggest the idyllic cycle path around the Ossiacher See (28 km): a family-friendly route starting directly from the hotel. There is also a connection to the Drau Cycle Path, the Ciclovia Alpe Adria cycle path to Venzone and the lagoon town of Grado.
The next biggest town is Villach, the lively town on the river Drau (18 km) and the center of our holiday region! A bit close is the small district town of Feldkirchen (8 km) which is also worth a visit. Enjoy the unique Carinthian lifestyle – a mixture between three cultures (Italy, Slovenia and Austria), visit charming farmer´s markets, discover the Roman history of Carinthia, go on a boat cruise or visit the modern thermal spa KärntenTherme! So many things to do – enjoy your holidays in Carinthia!
