Gerlitzen and the Ossiacher See

Gerlitzen and the Ossiacher See

The ‘Gerlitzen’ skiing and walking area is located at a height of 504 to 1,911 metres above sea level. It forms part of the Nock mountain range and the Ossiacher See lies in the southern valley. The 360 degree view across the vast region of Carinthia is already enough to take away all your stresses.

The special high location, at 1,000 metres above sea level, guarantees you one of the best summer accommodations there are.

Panoramic walks and the many other leisure-time activities in nature are possible from this base all year round. Both in the summer and the winter, there are many culinary restaurants open in the surrounding area. The skiing area alone has 15 ski huts and other smaller charming restaurants.
