This e-bike and trekking bike tour connects two of the most beautiful lakes in Carinthia. From Ossiach you follow the well-marked bicycle route to Velden, crossing the Ossiacher Tauern at about 1000 meters above sea level.
The Ossiacher Tauern are a woody mountain range in Carinthia between Lake Ossiach in the northwest and lake Wörthersee in the southeast. The Ossiacher Tauern consist of several smaller peaks, the highest among them is the Taubenbühel (altitude of 1069 meters). Among locals, the Ossiacher Tauern are also called "The small Tauern".

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.
