Hiking in Kirchleitn
Let's hike across the Nock Mountains
Are you someone who thinks there is nothing better than getting up at 5:00 am, lacing up your hiking boots, slinging your backpack over your shoulder and enjoying a beautiful sunrise while racking up elevation gain? If so, then you will love it at Kirchleitn because it is in the heart of the Nock Mountains’ hiking region! But don’t worry - even if you prefer to take things a little more leisurely and would like to enjoy the mountains with your family, there are just as many beautiful hiking trails for you and your entire group!
Where resting is also an experience
Between 1,050 and 2,000 metres above sea level awaits 1,000 metres of marked hiking trails amid pristine nature; mountain air that is so clean it will make you want to shout for joy; and crystal clear mountain streams and lakes. Weary hikers can relax in a comfy hammock at one of the most beautiful rest stops, and for children nature means a new adventure at every turn. This is how adventure begins for even the littlest travellers, since many hiking trails near Kirchleitn are suitable for buggies.

Those who want to save a bit of energy can comfortably reach lofty heights with the cable cars and take on just a small trek. In the healthy high-altitude air, a hearty snack will taste so much better. At one of the 40 chalets in the Nock Mountains, home-smoked bacon and speck, freshly baked bread with farm butter and homemade cheeses are tasty, genuine, and simply unmatched.Trail map

Here the marmots whistle … and every day you will meet adventure. Such as the thrill of observing a shy herd of deer. Or enjoying exquisite specialties such as the rustic Karlbad, an old-fashioned bath house from the time of our great-great-great grandparents, on the Nockalm Road. The hikes will lead you up to heights of almost 2,500 metres, with beautiful views but without the rocky harshness of the Tauern mountains.
The Nock Mountains are invitingly curvy, perfect for “easy-going tourism”. They welcome hikers and nature-lovers; people who aren’t necessarily looking for extreme adventures but rather want to, upon closer inspection, perceive pristine nature and the carefully preserved cultural landscape of the past.
The Kirchleitn holiday village is located in the middle of the Nockberge Biosphere Reserve at a refreshing 1,350 metres above sea level, where the air is clean. Here in about 185 km² of national park, you can see, taste, smell, and feel nature each and every day. You will once again find everything you loved on holiday as a child…
