Adventure Mountain Gerlitzen Alpe

A mountain full of possibilities

A true hiking, paragliding, and relaxation paradise. Gerlitzen Alpe is a popular destination both in winter and summer. It is the southernmost mountain in the famous Nockberge range in Carinthia, with an elevation of 1,911 meters above sea level. From gentle alpine meadows to the summit, it's perfect for mountain hiking and strolling on 147 kilometers of high-altitude trails. Moreover, it offers breathtaking views of the Carinthian lakes and the majestic rocky peaks of the Karawanken and Julian Alps. The entire mountain can be wonderfully explored on foot, and many delightful alpine huts provide the perfect setting for a break. Authentic Carinthian specialties await tasting. For those seeking adventure, the "Erlebnisarena Kanzelhöhe" at the middle station of the Kanzelbahnen offers exciting activities.

Mountain cable cars

Only a 20-minute drive separates Lake Ossiach from the summit of Gerlitzen Alpe. In summer, from mid-May to mid-October, the Kanzelbahn with gondolas for four people and the 4-seater chairlift with hoods transport visitors daily to the 1,911-meter-high summit. For holders of the Kärnten Card, the ascent and descent are free once per day.
