Hochrindl is one of the popular cross-country skiing areas in Carinthia. On the unique panoramic trail between 1550 - 1750 meters above sea level, you can enjoy the view of the magical snow-covered alpine meadows.

For both the beginner and the more experienced lover there are well prepared trails.

Winter hiking

Hochrindl can also be experienced from its beautiful and peaceful side by foot, in winter. Various winter hiking trails lead through the snowy landscape of the Nockberge.

Past glistening snow surfaces and through deeply snow-covered forests, the marked trails are easily accessible to all. Be sure to keep an eye out for wildlife!

Alpine huts and inns are open and spoil tired hikers with down-to-earth and typically Carinthian "Schmankalan".
