Location & tips

Additional information

We are Albert and Winnie live Noord Brabant (NL) We love nature, peace but also challenge in cycling / walking / rafting / skiing and much more .... Why Carinthia? One of the main reasons is the fact that Carinthia clearly has 2 seasons, each with a completely different atmosphere. Winter can be severe here with a lot of snow making it an ideal area to practice all kinds of winter sports. Summer can be warm and very sunny. (Carinthia has the most hours of sunshine in Austria) The region offers many opportunities to spend those summer days in a very pleasant way. What we appreciate is the friendly atmosphere, not only in Kötschach, but throughout Carinthia. People are helpful and friendly here. Kötschach tries to do everything to make the living conditions for its population as natural and pleasant as possible. It is really an 'umweltfreundliche' municipality that attaches great importance to a clean and fresh environment. The pure mountain air contributes to this in a natural way. On the following pages we have tried to give you an idea of the possibilities that this region has to offer. Hopefully this will appeal to you so that you decide to spend your holiday in Carinthia House Alpenruhe 601. Albert and Winnie
Kötschach has a nice pool (indoor and outdoor sunbathing +)

Mauthen (± 2 km) has a beautiful natural pool.
Swimming can also in several lakes in the area. The Gail River
which runs through the village area is also excellent for foot baths, games etc. There are several beaches.
There start within a few hundred meters from our chalet really dozens of walks. These are all well marked.
Some of these walks we will describe briefly below.

Mauthner Klamm: This hike starts at the natural pool in Mauthen and is almost flat. (see picture)

Oedenhutte: This hike can be established via a paved road or in the woods.
Both options are well marked. Opposite the church, take the Schlanke Gasse and then automatically comes further evidence against. In Oedenhutte you can drink or eat. This walk takes about 1 hour. (Back)

Waterfalls at Weidenburg:
Through Mauthen Wuermlach you enter Weidenburg. Just before you Weidenburg leave again, you will find on the right the start of this route.

These three walks are fairly short.

There are also plenty of opportunities for long walks possibly even overnight if you decide to take a trip cabins on the mountain ridges.
A very famous is route 403 (the Karnischer Hoehenweg)

'S another long route 229 (the Gailtaler Hoehenweg)

Other well-known walks are the so Geotrails. These are routes with historical background is explained through a variety of dishes during the routes.
The five routes are:
GeoTrail Wolayersee.
GeoTrail Ploeckenpass

In Carinthia were built several routes that are specially designed for the tourist.
eg. The Grossglockner High Alpine Road, one route of 48 km that leads to the top of Grossglockner. (The highest mountain in Austria with 3,798 meters).
If you are driving towards Lienz find itself the signs marked Grossglockner.
The route runs through the Hohe Tauern National Park.

It is very easy to find, it is clearly stated as soon as you place name: Lienz passed.

It's not a fancy ski resort but a ski resort with magnificent views a very wide slopes. The height of the ski area is 1660 to 2278 meters.

You find again small huts with a friendly atmosphere. Many people we have spoken on this track are the crowds and commercial Tyrol fled.
In the Gail valley, you will find dozens of cross-country trails. You can close all our chalet in a trail "einsteigen".
This trail can be found as you walk into the Bundesstrasse. Then this road for about 100 meters (ri.Hermagor-Villach) and then turn right towards Gewerbezone Kotschach Ost. After few meters you will find, just over the bridge "Loipeneinstieg".
If you walk to Mauthen or driving, you'll find just behind the bridge
(At restaurant Erlenhof) also a "Loipeneinstieg". This is clearly indicated. If then a piece of the valley ski, you will find all sorts of connections to other routes.
