Start this hike at Neuegg on Lake Faak, behind "Vitalhotel Sonnblick." The hike begins with a steep section but once you reach the fish pond, it becomes an easy stroll to Egg. You then meet up with the forest road heading uphill to the large playground. Here you can take a nice break and hang out on the playground. You then must take the forest road to a clearly marked intersection. Take a right here onto a short but steep path on Taborstrasse right before the last parking lot. Final spurt: the summit of the Tabor will be reached in just a few minutes, where the view over Lake Faak is truly stunning.
As the sun slowly disappears, you can't help but wonder who is sitting behind the Dobratsch, pulling this magnificent red-orange ball down on a string. It is simply beautiful. When the natural spectacle ends, it is time for the descent, which begins right at the sun deck. You take the forest trail (Waldweg) to the left, crossing under the cables of the high-ropes course. From here you spend the rest of the trip walking downwards on the ledge on Taborstrasse- no worries, the barriers are strong! Keep right at every branch of the road. The final spurt is on Taborstrasse to the starting point.
all notes on protected areas
The post busses drive to a stop right across from Egg Beach (Strandbad Egg)- from there you are only a few meters from the starting point.
You can reach Lake Faak with the A2 highway- exit "Villach-Faaker See"- or with the A11 at exit "St. Niklas."
On cloudy days there are enough parking spots next to the beach- if the sun is out there are also parking spaces across from the Arneitz and Anderwald campgrounds.
