Wörthersee circular hiking trail - the somewhat different hiking destination


The lovely landscape around Lake Wörthersee is not a mountain landscape. Because here dominate firstly gentle hills, secondly green forests and thirdly wide forest paths. In addition, the Mediterranean feeling and the view of the beautiful turquoise-blue of Lake Wörthersee is omnipresent.

So on the one hand, the Wörthersee circular hiking trail offers a sun-drenched hiking landscape. But on the other hand, it's also a whopping 55km and 1400 meters of elevation gain. A really big challenge for hikers!

Therefore, many hikers divide the total distance into smaller individual parts and hike the circular hiking trail in manageable stages. With the 50% discount of the Wörthersee PlusCard on the Wörthersee boat trip, this can be done ideally by boat.

Alternatively, public buses are available on the south shore and trains on the north shore. So you can either take the public transportation to the starting points of the partial routes. Or from the day's end point back to his accommodation.

The southern flair and the light-flooded hiking trails on the gentle hills are an invitation to all pleasure hikers. In addition, there are the high-quality refreshment stops in the evening and the omnipresent "dolce vita". Together, these enjoyable ingredients make the Wörthersee circular hiking trail truly a hiking destination of a different kind!


Wörthersee circular hiking trail - detailed information


The terrain is hilly with some steep ascents and descents (lake heights from 440 to 850 meters, approx. +/- 1,400 meters in altitude), the route runs mostly in wooded areas, whereby there are always magnificent views of both Lake Wörthersee and the Karawanken.

The circular trail can be started and interrupted at will (the most suitable places for this are the landing stages around the lake and the train stations) and can be walked in both directions. If you do not want to interrupt, you should not be irritated by the "feeder paths" (such as from Krumpendorf and Pörtschach), which are usually marked blue-white-blue!


And in between again and again highlights


Zillhöhe, Pirkerkogel, Hohe Gloriette and Trattnigteich are recommended as special places to stop. And there is no way around a detour to the Pyramidenkogel anyway.
