Sport and fun during a winter holiday in Carinthia’s Nock mountains

From the start of December until the end of April the Nock mountains are transformed into a picturebook winter landscape. The gentle summits which are ‘sprinkled’ with snow and the deep snow-covered mountain slopes entice all ‘indoor bodies’ outside. Young & old alike get to explore the area around Bad Kleinkirchheim on more than 60 kilometres of winter hiking trails, or wearing snow shoes out on the terrain, on skis, snowboards or wooden sleds, on which they hurtle down into the valley. The spas in Bad Kleinkirchheim provide a relaxing alternative to winter sports. In the thick of winter holiday pleasure in Carinthia – your very own 4-star pleasure hotel, the Hotel Almrausch!

Winter hiking and snow-shoe hiking during a winter holiday in Carinthia
