A round-trip tour high above Bodensdorf with beautiful views of Lake Ossiach.  
A nice hike on forest roads and hiking trails with plenty of places to stop for a snack.  

Author’s recommendation

Don´t forget to stop for a snack at Kathrin's Buschenschenke - try the bread with bacon and ricotta!

Take  trail no. 40 from the tourist information on 10.-Oktober-Strasse past the church and turn right at the fire station. At the junction at the shrine, keep left and follow the St. Josefs-Strasse. At the next intersection in the forest you leave the path  (no. 40) and turn left and cross a small brook - on the right hand side you will see the pilgrimage church of St. Josef. From there you continue along St. Josefs-Strasse . After 200m you cross a small brook again and turn into the Leitenweg (downhill) on trail no. 42. After several bends, you pass the farm called "Schönberger" . Then you reach a junction and turn onto trail no. 3. Follow this trail through the "Rautniggraben" (a small trench) to the "Rautnigwiesen" (a big meadow) to Winkl-Ossiachberg . From there you have a wonderful view of the lake . Now you walk over beautiful meadows going slightly downhill , passing a single farm next to the trench. After the crossing you will reach Kathrin 's Buschensschenke (a small tavern) . Here trail no. 43 branches off downhill , which you have to follow to Unterberg .
