Family Trips on the Gerlitzen
On holiday at the Mountain Resort DIE KANZLERIN, you have the natural experience “Carinthia” on your doorstep. Hiking trails of varying length and level of difficulty across the Gerlitzen and Lake Ossiacher See region are suited for the whole family and will bring variety to your holiday with kids. There are also plenty of trip destinations and attractions in the surrounding area just waiting to be discovered before you return to your cosy apartment after an exciting day full of adventures.
Adventure Holidays on the Kanzelhöhe
Right by the Gerlitzen Gipfelbahn middle station, around 500 m away from the hotel, you will find the Erlebnisarena Kanzelhöhe (Adventure Arena Kanzelhöhe) . It features a broad variety of fun activities, especially geared to families, e.g. electrically powered go-karts, a bungee trampoline or a tubing track. The Kids Bike Park nearby has mountain bike trails that are particularly designed for children, including bumpy trails and steep turns. The Gerlitzen Adventure and High Ropes Park features a high ropes course from entry level to advanced level and flying fox fun for the entire family for kids from 3 yrs. of age.
Recreational Paradise Lake Ossiacher See
The area around Lake Ossiacher See, the third largest lake in Carinthia, is a true recreational paradise for children and adults alike. On hot summer days, treat yourself to a family day by the lake for swimming and sunbathing, take advantage of the range of sports activities offered by regional partners, from water skiing to rock climbing, or make a trip to the closer surroundings, e.g. to the Finsterbach waterfalls or to the Monkey Mountain with Landskron Castle .
Trips in the Surroundings of Lake Faaker See
Slightly to the south of Lake Faaker See there are even more fun attractions just waiting to be discovered by visitors of all ages. Your kids will be thrilled to follow the “Fox Trail”, a family hiking trail right by Lake Faaker See, or why not follow the tracks of Woroun the dragon in the “Dragon’s Forest” or have a go at rock climbing or archery in the high ropes course on the Taborhöhe. You will find tips for more excursions in the information material included with the Erlebnis Card Villach, which you can obtain free of charge at our reception desk, or in the material included with the Kärnten Card (subject to costs) that offers reductions at over 60 bonus partners.
