A hike for the body and mind around the summit of the Gerlitzen Alps.  
Over the past few years, several artists have created places of rest and reflection in the Gerlitzen Alps.  Enjoy spiritually-charged spots such as the "Felsenseen," Jacob's Ladder or the Asian Garden- as always these spots will be accompanied by glorious views of Carinthia's mountains and lakes.  

Author’s recommendation

With this hike you should leave enough time to properly enjoy the magic of each of the spiritual places!

Turn-by-turn directions

The Traumbogen hike leads from the Gerlitzen summit house north, then west around the summit.  It is very well marked and has a simple orientation system.  The trails are marked with their number and the letter "W" (ex: W4)- the individual intersections with their number and the letter "S" (ex: S76).  

Please use the following trail description with the accompanying numbers to guide yourself:

Gerlitzen Gipfel -> W4, S76, W1 -> Bergreich -> S65, W2, S9, W2, S3 -> Himmelsspirale -> W2, S24, W2, S22, W2, S20, W6 -> Asiatischer Garten -> S21, W67, S77, W67, S32, W7, S34, W73 -> Felsenseen -> Noreia Himmelsleiter -> W4 -> Jakobsleiter -> S31,  W4 -> Gruß an Tibet -> W4, S30, W4 -> Wetterkreuz -> W4, S76, W1, S23 -> Panoramaplattform -> W6 -> Gerlitzen Gipfel.

Public transport

The Gerlitzen gondola is best reached with the S2 train of the ÖBB- get out at the Annenheim stop.  The gondola then takes you to the middle station and you take a chairlift to the summit.  

Getting there

Annenheim is most easily reachced with the A10 highway- exit at "Villach-Ossiacher See."  From there you take the gondola to the middle station and a chairlift to the summit.  

Parking

There are plenty of parking spaces in the valley station (Annenheim Kanzelbahn).
