Autumn hiking in Bad Kleinkirchheim

People tend to proclaim the end of the hiking season as soon as summer is over. But not in scenic Bad Kleinkirchheim in Carinthia! As the days start drawing shorter, the landscapes around the Hotel GUT Trattlerhof**** don their golden autumn finery. It’s by far the best time to go hiking and breathe in the invigorating air. Experience the glories of autumn on a hike in the Nockberge UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in Carinthia.

What makes hiking in autumn so great?

Anyone who has experienced this golden time of year in the Nock Mountains of Carinthia will know why hiking is so popular here in late summer. The entire countryside & mountain landscape is swathed in its burnished autumn apparel, every breath of the crisp air fills you with energy and the breathtaking panorama with far-reaching views over the broad valleys and towering peaks just makes you want to get out there.

”Savour the good life on an autumn hike, amid vivid loganberry bushes, tumbling streams and invigorating mountain lakes.”

What's the best time for an autumn hike?

It’s worth getting up early to put on your hiking boots and head up into the mountains of Carinthia. You’ll be rewarded with views over a fluffy sea of clouds, pierced by the peaks of the Nock Mountains. Heaven has never felt closer. The spectacular golden hour on autumn evenings is also a wonderful time to linger and daydream awhile in the mountains. Pause and drink in the views as the sun slowly dips behind the peaks, bathing the land in a blaze of orange and gold.

Discover the magic of the forests in autumn

If you prefer to take it easy during your autumn break, we recommend making an excursion to the enchanting forests surrounding Bad Kleinkirchheim, just a few minutes from the Hotel GUT Trattlerhof****. Mother Nature is resplendent here during the autumn months, with brilliantly colourful flora & fauna and natural delicacies like blackberries, lingonberries & crisp mushrooms in abundance.

”Our insider tip: connect with nature and go for a gentle ramble in the woods to forage for mushrooms, rather than a strenuous hike.”
