Springtime hikes in Bad Kleinkirchheim

When spring arrives in Bad Kleinkirchheim in Carinthia, plants start to waken from their winter slumber, animals emerge from hibernation and the gentlespring sunshine caresses our cheeks once more. It’s the perfect time to enjoy the magic of the Nock Mountains. There's a lot to discover on a hike in spring.

If you fancy a blend of profound relaxation, unforgettable adventures and exhilarating forays into the glorious mountain landscape in spring, there’s no better place than the Hotel GUT Trattlerhof**** & Chalets in Bad Kleinkirchheim. Not only does the rustic GUTshof offer a wealth of options itself, it’s also the perfect starting point for lots of hikes into the Nock Mountains, which have been designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

”GUTshof insider tip: For the perfect springtime hike, we always recommend south-facing routes.”

When does the hiking season start?

Whatever the season, hiking around Bad Kleinkirchheim is an endlessly rewarding experience. For hikers who can’t wait to get out there, Carinthia’s climate means that the region offers fantastic spring hiking from April onwards.

To stay safe while hiking in the mountains, it’s best to stick to the Carinthian alpine lodge season, which begins in mid-May. Stopping at mountain lodges is as much a part of the hiking experience as our beloved horses in our stables are a quintessential part of the Trattlerhof. And what could be better than tucking into a tasty Austrian-style charcuterie board, a lovingly prepared dish of Kaiserschmarrn or traditional Carinthian Kasnudeln after an intrepid hike in the bracing mountain air?

”They GUTshof kitchen will be happy to prepare a snack for you to take on your hike.”

I'd avoid the "gift" as that implies it's free (which it might not be). Mitgift is dowry or trousseau, which doesn't make much sense in any case.

What makes hiking in spring so special?

When spring arrives in Carinthia, you get to see a whole new side to nature. Little streams of fresh meltwater tumble down the slopes, colourful meadows of daisies, crocuses and lily-of-the-valley dot the landscape and herds of cows return happily to their alpine pastures.

Savour these experiences, enjoy the good life and embrace the joys of spring. Breathe in the mountain air and switch off from the everyday grind. Let the relaxing atmosphere take effect.

The hiking routes around the Hotel GUT Trattlerhof**** & Chalets will take you all over Carinthia’s sweeping Nock Mountains Biosphere Reserve. Along the way, you’ll come upon beautiful sights and interesting waypoints. There are surprises around every corner!
