Chalet village in the winter

Holidays in St. Oswald

Holiday idyll in Carinthia for your family holidays

If you go up the lonely mountain road from Bad Kleinkirchheim, you will finally reach St. Oswald. Hardly more than a holiday village, the 165-souls village lies between the soft mountain ridges. A spot of the earth in the middle of nowhere, and a real insider tip for holidaymakers seeking recreation and for lively children. Around you only mountains, meadows and forests that will be transformed into a white fairy-tale wonderland by Mother Holle in the winter.

Holidays without any disturbing distractions

Here you have room for creativity and adventurism, for undisturbed reading hours and lively game nights. You will see: Tablets and game consoles will quickly be thrown into the corner. On 1,300 metres, apart from busy tourism destinations, everyday life will move far, far away and nature will come close. The holiday villages Grosswild and Kleinwild are completely free of cars. Here, the small tomboys have nothing to fear and all the freedom they could wish for. Bobby car race? Badminton match? Play tag? Your offspring will surely not run out of ideas when they can just be children.

Auszeit-Hof (time-out farm) and slow food

Organic farm and alpine chalet village made of real scrap wood taken from old farms and barns guarantee you an authentic holiday experience in the high valley of the Nock mountains, one of the oldest parts of the Alps. On the Auszeit-Hof Hinteregger you can visit ecologically kept animals and comprehend the production of organic products. Slow food in its truest sense can be enjoyed in the alpine village Kirchleitn when the farmers of the region cook their self-made farmer’s delicacies for you.

Soak up the mountainous feeling of life

Enjoy the time at the pulse of nature in the midst of the landscape as far as the eye can see. Healthy mountain air strokes your nose, after all, hardly any vehicle finds its way to the mountain village St. Oswald in Carinthia. A true gem in the Carinthian Nock mountains where the clocks run a little slower. If you need a clock anyhow during your holidays.
