Beautiful hike in central Carinthia which combines nature and culture
The trail leads through a beautiful wooded countryside and is steeped in history and culture. Surrounded by a beautiful castle garden lies the Damtschach castle. On the Sternberg you can enjoy a magnificent view of Lake Wörth, the Karavanken and the Julian Alps during a stop at Gasthof Sternberg . Continue through the Schmarotzwald, past the Hohenwart ruins until you reach Stallhofen, then take the same route back.
If the weather is nice (read: sunny) the church offers a magnificent view into the Klagenfurt Basin and the nearby mountain ranges: the Julian Alps and the Karavanken.
