Experience Carinthia as a vacation destination in all its facets
Gerlitzen Alpe is located in the heart of Carinthia, the southernmost state of Austria. It is the exact geographical center, offering a vacation in the mountains while still being close to the vibrant Carinthian life. Even our neighboring countries, Slovenia and Italy, are easily accessible. In just fifteen minutes, you can reach the beautiful Ossiacher See by car in the valley.
Around Gerlitzen Alpe, you will find the diverse holiday offerings of Carinthia. The Affenberg (Monkey Mountain) and the Landskron Castle ruins on the western shore of Ossiacher See are excursions for the whole family. On the way back, a stop at the Finsterbach waterfalls in Sattendorf is a must. You can hike up to three waterfalls via an easy path. If adventure calls and you want to take a day trip, within a radius of just 150 kilometers, you can experience a lot: the Malta High Alpine Road, Hochosterwitz Castle, or the Grossglockner High Alpine Road.
