Destination

Tourismusinformation Velden

Turn-by-turn directions

Starting from the tourist information Ossiach, you have to follow the Ossiacher Süduferstraße to the East towards Alt-Ossiach. At the elementary school turn right onto the Ossiacher Tauern road. Follow the road uphill until you reach a small forest lake called Ossiacher Tauern Teich.

After a short break we follow the dirt road east to a small farm and the Tauern church situated on an idyllic plateau. From there it is only a short way to the workshop of Jean Luc Lenoble, who has a small showroom, where you can buy products and toys made of wood.

The road leads to the L47 Ossiacher Tauern country road and there you have to take a sharp turn to the right towards Köstenberg. After a short climb to the Alpine Tauerneck, follow the paved roads to Köstenberg, via Wurzen and Oberjeserz.

Here we recommend a short detour to the quiet and small lake Saissersee, before cycling via Kranzelhofen to the tourist information in Velden.

The track is sufficiently signposted, also in the reverse direction, and easy to find! Alternatively you cycle back via the R1, Drauradweg and R2 and R2A to Lake Ossiach.
