The Dobratsch Nature Park is the perfect area for a relaxing hike.  The convenient path is ideal for an easy hike, while offering breath-taking views in all directions.  Make a few stops at the observation deck, sunny spots, and points and enjoy the Carinthian specialities afterwards!

The beginning of this hike is right next to the Aichinger Cottage.  After about 10-20 minutes on the trail you can stray from the path to an observation deck where beautiful views are already available. From here, you can easily get back on the path and be to the summit in an hour and a half where the views are even more stunning.  With a bit of luck, especially in the morning hours, you may get a view of the wild chamois, a species of mountain goat/antelope.  After leaving the observation deck, you take the same way back down to the Aichinger Cottage.  

Author’s recommendation

The Aichinger Cottage and "das Rosstrattenstüberl" (P11)   are both excellent culinary stops.
