Destination

Dobratsch

Turn-by-turn directions

From the parking lot Rosstratte follow the wide road to the west. Behind the restaurant Rosstratten is the start of this tour. Follow the way up to the eastern and northern slopes of the Zehnernock. Follow path no. 291 to the summit. In the second half, the terrain becomes increasingly flatter. You can either end your tour at the summit house and enjoy Carinthian specialities straight away. Or you go on and climb up to the church / the weather station from where the summit cross can be seen. The last meters to the summit lead over a narrow ridge - be careful! To go back, follow the same route downhill.
