Loop Scenic Insider tip
A short but intense hike to "Peterlewand". CLOSED UNTIL THE END OF MAY DUE TO CONSTRUCTION WORKS FOR A NEW CLIMBING WALL.
On this short but intense hike (also suitable as a nordic walking trail) you cover a lot of altitude in a short time- you will be rewarded with a gorgeous view of Lake Ossiach at the end! 

Author’s recommendation

There is a nice pavilion in Peterland- perfect to watch the sunset!

Turn-by-turn directions

After the start you follow the St. Urban path until you get to the "Nesslbach" path- you will walk past the evangelical church in Tschöran on this path.  After this you follow hiking trail number 7- then trail 39 all the way to Peterlewand.  To get back, take path 7 and path 2 (Reitweg) and you will be back to the St. Urban trail and the starting point in no time.  

Public transport

You can generally reach St. Urban with the busses and trains of the ÖBB- from the southern shore it is easiest to take the Lake Ossiach ferry to the starting point.  

Getting there

Coming from the A2 or A10 take the motorway exit Ossiacher See. On the Osssiacher See federal road (B94) continue in the direction of Bodensdorf. In Bodensdorf, turn right immediately after the petrol station over the railway crossing.
