The winter in Bad Kleinkirchheim

Man cannot live on skiing alone ...

Do you have little interest in the skiing circus and enjoy peaceful winters instead? Do you look for adventure off the beaten path? In the Nock Mountains that surround Kirchleitn, you will find winter in a deep sleep; its breath can be felt in the quiet of the mountains and forests.

Wintertime means hiking time here!

Have you ever experienced the wonderful scent of a winter forest? Take a hike or strap on your snowshoes and hear nothing but your heartbeat and the crunching of snow under your feet. And perhaps you will encounter a forest animal on its search for food. A 60 kilometre network of well-maintained winter hiking trails winds through the area around Bad Kleinkirchheim and takes you right to lookout points and alpine chalets where you can warm up with a Carinthian snack and a hot cup of tea.

Magical snowflake

When the lakes are covered with a thick sheet of ice that glitters and sparkles like diamonds, you can lace up your ice skates and practise your spins and jumps. Cross-country skiing is the perfect activity for anyone who would prefer something a bit sportier, but still doesn’t want to forego the wintry stillness. Find moments of pure happiness and plenty of opportunities for quiet contemplation on a (guided) ski tour.

Romantics and young visitors alike will succumb to the magic of tobogganing, a sleigh ride or a torch-lit hike. After a day of exercising in the clear mountain air, you can cosy up together by the warm tiled stove in your apartment, look forward to your comfy, soft bed and dream of your next winter adventure.
