Destination

Hermagor

Turn-by-turn directions

The Biosphere Reserve Nockberge is fascinating for every biker. Leaving from Hermagor, you head towards Weissensee, over the Kreuzberg Pass (1,077 m) to Greifenburg, and then take the B 100 to Spittal/Drau. Something which is well worth seeing there is the Porcia Palace with its informative heritage museum. Spittal is also a good place to refuel. Then carry on towards Lake Millstätter See. In Seeboden take the exit for Treffling at the second roundabout, and follow the narrow road through the Lieser Valley towards Gmünd. Gmünd is the best preserved small medieval town in Carinthia. Its Porsche Car Museum is also worth a visit. A detour here will take you through the Malta Valley and over the Malta High Alpine Road to the imposing Kölnbreinsperre, Austria’s largest dam at 2,000 m. From Gmünd, carry on through the Lieser Valley as far as Kremsbrücke. There, turn off towards Innerkrems where one of Austria’s most scenic mountain roads begins: the Nockalmstrasse (Nockalm Road), 34 km of true biking pleasure. You can stop off for refreshments at traditional restaurants and alpine chalets where genuine Carinthian food is served. Then continue your tour to Bad Kleinkirchheim, Radenthein and Döbriach. From there, further on over the Glanz (fabulous views of Lake Millstätter See) to Ferndorf, towards Stockenboi and as far as Lake Weissensee’s eastern shores, enjoying unspoilt nature all the way. After a short rest, continue towards Boden and Kreuzen, via Windische Höhe back to Hermagor.

Questions and answers

Question from Torsten Seidel · August 15, 2022 · Community
Ist die Nockalmstrasse auch für Biker geeignet die noch nicht so lange fahren und in Kehren eher unsicher sind?

Herrliche Tagestour bei der man nicht nur die bekannteren Gebiete Maltatal und Nockberge erlebt sondern sehr viele kleine abwechslungsreiche Nebenstrecken durch herrliche Naturlandschaft. Auf einem kurzen unbefestigte Weg könnte mann nach schlechtem Wetter ein Schlammloch antreffen, für Enduros kein Problem, sonst leicht zu umfahren.
