Each of the four trails is an adventure in itself:

trail of the elements, trail of the ski legends, Barbara trail and Lake Windebensee trail.

Barbara Trail


This panorama theme path explores the historic traditions of mining on Turracher Höhe while also presenting the incomparable magnificence of the Turrach mountain range in an informative, visually stimulating manner. The Barbara Trail will lead you along gentle hilltops where you will discover the numerous unique characteristics of this high plateau.
The information boards dotted along the path contain plenty of fascinating facts about mountain trees, the elemental forces of water, primal powers, Alpine meadows, local stones, mining activities and pasturing. But this path offers much more than just factual information – for instance the magical view from the highest situated point along the Barbaraweg, the view over 3 lakes at an altitude of 2,000 m.


Path of the skiing-legends

At the heart of the Carinthian Nockberge Mountains, right at the beginning of the Nockalmstraße, lies the Innerkrems ski and hiking resort, which was chosen as the location of the Innerkrems Alpine Training Center for its ideal winter conditions. Catering for modern-day professional ski racing, pistes were extended, a training and competition piste with a training lift added and a sports house built, turning the centre into the perfect training destination for the world’s best skiers.

The Innerkrems Alpine Training Center is pleased to present the “Skiing Legends Theme Path“ as one of the four theme paths in the Nockberge Mountains.


Lake Windebensee

Lake Windebensee is located just below the Schiestelscharte saddle directly on the Nockalm Road at approx. 1,900 m altitude. Although the beauty of the water with its dark shade of blue might look tempting for a swim, it is – probably – much too cold for a refreshing dip after a hike. Lake Windebensee is better known for the abundant flora to be found along its shores; the impressive trees, naturally growing bushes, unusual grasses, protective lichen and colourful flowers.
