Turn-by-turn directions

Beginning in the center of the town, you follow the bike path 4 kilometers parallel to the main road (Landesstrasse) towards “Feldkirchen.”  A few meters after the intersection with L50, on Prefelnig Peak, you will come upon a forest road on the right side (there are few houses on the left).  This road takes you on a comfortable and curvy ascent.  At about 800 meters above sea-level you will reach a bridge over a creek, which is the highest point of the route.  You cross the “Schluchtweg Ossiach” hiking route here, which takes you from Ossiach through the beautiful canyon up to the Tauern Pond.  The path now goes downhill and you will already be back to the starting point after four curves. 

Getting there

From Villach: L49 to Ossiach

From Feldkirchen: L49 or B94, then L50 and L49 to Ossiach.

Parking

In the town center next to the abbey (Stift).
