Destination for generations: hiking, playing and nature paradise Nockberge

Holidays at last – let’s get out of the city and off to Carinthia! Finally feel the tickling of grass between naked toes instead of hot tarmac underneath your soles. Breathe fragrant, fresh mountain air instead of stuffiness between rows of houses. Jump, hop, run without having to mind any red lights. Dew treading, seeing the sun rise above mountain summits, crawling into bed long after sundown, the faraway ringing of cow bells in your ear. Families that have to deal with lots of tasks in everyday life feel the stress fall away from them and can enjoy pleasant relaxation. Now there’s time for the children, for your partner. For fun and games and laughing until your belly and cheeks almost hurt. Welcome to the Nockberge!

Nocki knows what children want: the most beautiful playgrounds

The best thing about a relaxed daytrip or during a holiday is simply forgetting about time. Once your children have discovered one of the playgrounds in the Nockberge, everything around them doesn’t matter anymore. Nocki, the mascot of the Nockalm Road, can be found at eight playgrounds. Parents can calmly put their feet up and enjoy a spot of sunbathing. And when your tummy’s rumbling, the next mountain hut isn’t far away. Here everyone can enjoy the delicacies produced at the dairy farms and mountain pastures together. Discover together with your children how spicy, hearty and divinely sweet the Carinthian cuisine tastes.
