Pure freedom on the mountain

The Nock Mountains - an experience in every season

Holidays amidst Carinthia’s lush alps

A panorama beyond compare. Grassy, rounded mountain summits, the view into the basin of Villach and the majestic Karawanken mountains, and the fragrant alpine meadows within reach that clothe themselves in glistening, lavish white in winter. This healthy mountain air will even lure couch potatoes out of the house. Hardly surprising with all those possibilities that the Nock Mountains in the Carinthian East Alps offer.

Whether hiking from leisurely trails to high summits, theme trails, mountain biking, skiing, cross-country skiing and snow-shoe hiking: The Nock Mountains will be a fascinating experience in the green as well as in the white season. In the middle of it all, between Bad Kleinkirchheim and Feldkirchen in Carinthia, near Ebene Reichenau: the Hochrindl.

Freedom en masse & luxurious retreat

And this is where we have placed our chalet village, in the middle of the mountains. Your private home base where you can put your feet up in your own chalet with terrace and sauna after all your mountain adventures. But first the mountains, nature and freedom will await you. Right on your doorstep. Whether sporty or leisurely. Whether with children, as a couple or with your dog. Here, the seasons set the rhythm, from spring to deep winter.

Why are the Nock Mountains called Nock Mountains? Their gentle, grass-covered hillocks, called “Nocken” in Austria, give them their name. A feast for the eyes and calming for the mind. This panorama will welcome you every single day when you blink into the distance from the balcony of your chalet. What a sight! It’s worth the journey to Hochrindl for that alone, where you can enjoy your individual holiday in the Nock Mountains and relax deeply.
