Gerlitzen Kanzelbahn Gondola

Ready for the most beautiful panoramic views in Carinthia?
Carinthia’s best summer mountain cable car at the Gerlitzen Alp, will take you directly from the lake up the mountain. 20 relaxing minutes with the cable car separate Lake Ossiach from the summit of the Gerlitzen Alp. Several attractions, especially for families, await the summer visitor.

There are fun activities for everyone – the ‘Pistenflitzer’, Austria’s first downhill go-kart track, an electric piste-car for children, a bungee trampoline and the new kids bike park. The impressive viewing platform at the summit, at 1911 m altitude, offers visitors fantastic panoramic views. There are optional guided hikes and Nordic Walking tours free of charge. If you want to get to know Carinthia from above, the Gerlitzen summit is the perfect starting place for paragliding and model flying. For Kärnten Card holders, one ascent and one descent daily are included.


Enjoy the mountains – without borders!
Guten Tag! Dober dan! Buongiorno! Experience Alpine Adriatic hiking without borders - between Austria, Slovenia and Italy. Away from the hustle and bustle. Where is this possible? In the three country triangle, on the border with Italy and Slovenia. With the three-seater chair lift, the "3-country jet", you glide gently upwards.

In just 15 minutes you are taken to 1506 meters above sea level. The unique view of the Julian Alps, the Karawanken, the Gail Valley and the Villach Basin will put a smile on your face.

At the top, hiking is on the programme: short or long hikes. Or none at all. If you prefer you can to let the sun shine on your face while sitting on the terrace of the mountain restaurant "3-Länder-Treff", where you can enjoy delicious Carinthian delicacies.

A marvelous memorable hike is the Three Country Walk. You can expect an approximately three-hour tour through the three countries, Austria, Italy and Slovenia. With countless unique resting points for the perfect mountain snack. So be sure to pack a Carinthian ‘Schinkenspeck’, an Italian ‘Prosciutto’ and a Slovenian ‘Prsut’ in your backpack.
