Here you will find the province’s historic heritage firmly rooted in a living landscape of small lakes and mountains that is equally interesting for culture and nature lovers to explore. Take a trip far back in time to the excavation site at Magdalensberg, to Hochosterwitz Castle, to the remarkable old towns of Friesach, the town of castles and festivals, the duke’s town of St. Veit with its magnificent display of flowers, or Althofen with the Auer von Welsbach Museum. Gurk Cathedral, the centre of Hemmaland, is the destination of the Hemma pilgrimage paths that accompany you in a contemplative way through the charming countryside.
Your trip back in time will take you to the mining village of Hüttenberg. Follow the trail of Heinrich Harrer, lifelong friend of the Dalai Lama.
The historic Central Carinthia is therefore brimming with culture and history – and just waiting to be explored by bike on the cycle heritage trail or on foot on the numerous walking trails in the midst of nature.
