Flow Country Trail

Fun on Europe’s longest Flow Country Trail in Bad Kleinkirchheim

The trailhead lies at 2,055 m above sea level amidst Carinthia’s Nockberge mountains. Nearly 970 meters difference in altitude and an average 8 % gradient will be covered on the way down to the valley. Bikers can expect scooters, piers, small drops and individual steep bends on the trail fixed with gravel.

Along the trail, novice riders and experts alike will find plenty of places to stop, catch a breath and alternative possibilities. 

The 16 km long trail in the beautiful natural surroundings of Bad Kleinkirchheim is great fun and designed to offer something for riders of all ages and abilities. Add to that, there is the Bad Kleinkirchheim Bike Parcours at the Kaiserburg valley station featuring training course and pump track, perfect for practicing before finally hitting the Flow Country Trails.

See the webcams of the Bad Kleinkirchheimer Bergbahnen for an overview.

Biking & Family

Biking enjoyment for all ages

Numerous family-friendly biking offers combined with the welcoming atmosphere of the sports hotel Kärntnerhof ensure exciting holidays. Located in the village center of Bad Kleinkirchheim, our hotel is the ideal base for biking tours across the beautiful Nock region. You’ll be spoilt for choice with easy tours of no more than 500 altitude meters that not only guide you through the exceptionally beautiful natural landscape with plenty of spots to sample culinary delicacies but also take you to a diverse range of sights and adventure playgrounds for children. We recommend the ride along the southern shore of lake Millstättersee, part of which can also be shortened using the boat, the Drau River cycle path or a leisurely family tour to Gnesau. Younger bikers might interest the Young Rocket bike camp of the Sportschule Krainer, the Bikers Lounge in Feld am See or the Pump Track (practice trail) at the Kaiserburg valley station before scaling the Flow Country Trail. Knowing their children are having a blast taking part in our childcare programs, parents can also head off on their own now and then.

As the local mayor, grown up in the family’s hotel business, I’ve been able to actively participate in shaping the region’s future and bring forward many initiatives. To slow down I like spending my free time with sports activities in the Carinthian Nockberge and enjoy cycling holidays with my wife.
