Hiking across alpine pastures could actually have been invented by the people living here in the Nockberge Mountains. The gentle mountain world is just waiting to be discovered: family-friendly paths along mountain ridges, imposing peaks, some with demanding climbs up to 2,441 meters, and idyllic lakes framed by breathtaking scenery. Turracher Höhe is a veritable haven for nature lovers.
Like few other regions, the Nockberge Biosphere Park provides excellent options for roaming through lush meadows, mastering more demanding tours or scaling one of the many mountain peaks without the need for any special hiking gear. The Nockberge Biosphere Park makes it all possible!
A particular attraction for families are mountain walks and short hikes around the 3 Lakes Trail located at 1,800 meters above sea level (Lake Turracher See, Schwarzsee and Grünsee), or the Barbaraweg, an exciting panoramic path that explores the history of the local mining tradition.

Time and again, one can read about hikers who put themselves in danger by wearing unsuitable shoes, forgetting essential equipment such as protection against the rain, cold or sun, overestimating their stamina or failing to take note of the weather forecast.
Safe hiking requires preparation and advance information. Therefore, please be sure to observe the rules for proper conduct in the mountains. Your safety is very important to us. And don’t forget: drink plenty of fluids while hiking!
