The Turracherhöhe - nestled in the Nock Mountains – is situated between Carinthia in the south and Styria in the north. This area lies within the territory of two regions - the Nock Mountains (Carinthia) and the Mur Valley (Styria). The Nock Mountains are Europe's only national park in the high mountains, with the largest spruce, larch and pine forests in the eastern Alps. On both sides of the road you will find an extensive network of hiking paths with numerous, well-marked trails. Guided walks are offered. The area is also ideal for mountain bikers. Turracher Lake, Schwarzsee and Grünsee are the three picturesque mountain lakes that make the Turracherhöhe so unique. The Kornockbahn has a modern 6-seat chairlift that takes you (in the summer) to the Turracherhöhe, at an altitude of up to 2,205 meters above sea level. At the 'Nocky-Flitzer' there is a spectacular alpine toboggan run that can be used in both summer and winter. This toboggan run has a length of about 1,580m which includes 3 whipping tops, mogul runs and jumps. It also ensures maximum safety for children as well as adults. If you would like to take a stroll through a city or do some shopping (journey time 60 minutes maximum) we recommend Carinthia Feldkirchen, Klagenfurt, Villach and Spittal an der Drau, Murau in Styria and Salzburg Tamsweg.
The accommodation is about 500m from the ski lift. You get to the lifts and back on skis.
