A wonderfully convenient, fast and environmentally-friendly train journey will take you, stress-free, to Hohe Tauern, Carinthia’s national park region. The scenic Tauernbahn railway will give you a taste of the dream holiday which awaits you in the villages between the Grossglockner mountain and Weissensee. The closer you get to your destination, the more impressive the view becomes. We advise our German guests to book the reasonably-priced Deutsche Bahn RIT ticket directly from us. This way you can save up to 50% on the normal ticket price.
For millions of years the elemental force of water has moulded and shaped the mountainous landscape of the Hohe Tauern! In the process it has left behind for us masterpieces of the Creation: waterfalls plummeting down into the valleys over sky-high rock faces and through deep and mysterious gorges.
The Großglockner reaches 3,798 metres into the sky. It is the highest peak in Austria and a
magical mountain among Hohe Tauern's majestic high peaks. One hundred of these glorious
giants are 3,000 metres high.
For those seeking adventure, the wild waters of the Mölltal valley offer unforgettable vacation experiences. The Möll is one of the most attractive rafting rivers in the eastern Alps. The clear, clean water, a virtually unobstructed route and constant water level will make any white-water fan’s heart beat faster. If canyoning is more your style, try out the specially selected and safe gorges. It will take your breath away!
The National Park Kärnten Card offers families an incredible amount – and effectively for free: you can go panning for gold in the Heiligenblut Gold Diggers’ Village, visit the BIOS National Park Centre, enjoy the breathtaking panoramic view from the Großglockner High Alpine Road, to name just a few! And best of all: the more you do with your family the more money you save!
From Obervellach to Burg Falkenstein in Gratschach, along the River Möll. From the Oberfalkenstein castle ruins there is a lovely trail to Pfaffenberg and on to Obervellach ...
First mentioned in 1326, the Faulturm tower at "Chuogl" (in a hillside setting at Mullileiten) accommodated the Görz vassals. Later on it was owned by the Counts of Ortenburg and Cilli.
Back in the times of gold mining the town hall was inhabited by the Schlaminger family, who ranked among the most influential mine operators in the Möll Valley, not only in Obervallach, but also in Teuchl and Innerfragant.
The hamlet of Dürnvellach features an abandoned gold mine, with a number of tunnels still visible to the interested visitor.
The Groppenstein waterfall is an experience of a special kind: the trail through the gorge starts out on level ground, then rises to the Groppenstein waterfall, which is of extraordinary, wild and romantic beauty. The 30m high waterfall makes for pleasantly cool and damp air.
The Upper Carinthian 3-gorge trail takes you to the Rabischschlucht, Groppensteinschlucht and Raggaschlucht gorges.
