1 Central CARINTHIA PLACES TO VISIT UNWIND AND DISCOVER UNSPOILT AUTHENTICITY SUPPORTED BY where paths flourish

2 3 CENTRALCARINTHIA REGION THE AUTHENTIC TRAVEL EXPERIENCE CULTURE The country between Hochosterwitz and Gurk, around the ducal seat of St. Veit and beyond the medieval town walls of Friesach, has always been the historic heart of Carinthia. Even today, the perfectly preserved castles, the magnificent stately homes, the family inns so rich in tradition, the age-old pilgrim ways and the cultural landscape that has developed in harmony with nature all bear witness to this fact. (ELECTRIC) E-BIKING Steeped in history as it is, Central Carinthia is bursting with energy and is also looking to the future. At the Tourist Office on St. Veit s Hauptplatz (main town square) energy-saving e-bikes stand ready and waiting. With their help you can explore Central Carinthia in an environmentally friendly manner, allowing you to master this tract of country completely as the fancy takes you. The electric power for the bikes is from the renewable energy sources, for which the innovative St. Veit Energy-Cluster is famous. where paths flourish Explore the Heart of Carinthia CULINARY DELIGHTS PILGRIMAGES Central Carinthia where pristine valleys and gentle mountain landscapes definitively shape Carinthia s historic heart. Where mighty castles and majestic ruins sit enthroned above idyllic countryside and warm, crystal-clear bathing lakes. Here Carinthian wine is grown on sunny slopes and the Region s culinary delicacies are an alluring delight. Here culture and sites that are steeped in history meet the modern age; together they offer a truly exceptional experience, mediated by paths and by-ways that have grown and flourished over the course of history. Explore this gem on foot, with an (electric) e-bike, or by car in the company of our certified hiking guides or independently and take a stroll through Central Carinthia, where paths flourish. Where travellers, tradesmen and pilgrims once rested on their journeys, lodging houses and inns grew up with rich traditions behind them; to this very day, they are still run as family businesses. Following recipes handed down from the past, they produce the typical culinary delicacies of Central Carinthia, which are also used as the basis for new, award-winning creations. Wines from Lake Längsee and refreshing Hirt and Wimitz beers also hold out the prospect of memorable pleasures. From time immemorial there have been especially spiritual sites in Central Carinthia, where believers have founded churches and monasteries. And they remain in use for the same purpose even today. The Cathedral at Gurk is the perfect example, as a targeted destination on a number of pilgrimage trails, including the Hemma Pilgrims Way. Then again, the famous Metnitz Dance of Death, the Tibetan pilgrimage path in Hüttenberg and the Protestant Trail of the Book are testimony to other approaches to faith.

3 St. Veit an der Glan DISCOVERY tour City tours: strolling through the jewel on the River Glan, or riding an e-bike on a unique voyage of discovery that spans the centuries. Keeping you entertained along the way, fully trained city guides let you in on the secrets of St. Veit. SCHLOSS TANZENBERG (PALACE): A CULTURAL GEM Schloss Tanzenberg is situated on a gentle hill above the historic plain of Zollfeld and is one of the most significant Renaissance complexes in Austria. At the beginning of the 20th century a Neo-Romanesque galleried basilica with three naves and a rounded apse was constructed in the southwest wing, which had once accommodated a magnificently appointed ballroom. In 1986 Valentin Oman, an artist renowned far beyond the borders of Austria, was commissioned with the design for the impressive altarpiece and choir walls. TIP: Magdalensberg (MOUNTAIN) Looking out from Tanzenberg your gaze will settle on Magdalensberg one of the Region s four holy mountains. It is the starting point for the annual Four-Mountains-Pilgrimage. Its archaeological park is worth a visit and the panoramic view from the summit is simply breathtaking. WIMITZBRÄU (BREWERY): THE DANGEROUSLY GENUINE BEER Wimitzbräu brewery was established in 2011 in Wimitzgraben the Valley of the Outlaws. The water that rises from the ground there reputedly rotates in a clockwise direction and has therapeutic properties. This exceptional Wimitz spring water is a basic ingredient for the innovative micro-brewery. It is totally committed to its unprocessed, dangerously genuine beers and to regional marketing. All its beer varieties are completely untreated and unprocessed; they are brewed under certified conditions of organic quality and only sold within a radius of about 60km. The brewery offers guided tours and tastings. Environs of St. Veit THE REGION S HISTORIC HEART AND INNOVATIVE CENTRE RELIVE THE CITY S HISTORY AT ST. VEIT MUSEUM ENERGY ADVENTURE EXHIBITION AT FUCHSPALAST SCHLOSS FRAUENSTEIN (PALACE): WHERE PATHS BEGIN AN IDYLLIC GEM IN HARMONY WITH NATURE St. Veit s picturesque Old Town bears witness to the 900-year history of the Ducal City. This former seat of the powerful Dukes of Carinthia is still impressive to visit today. A host of cultural-historical treasures, perfectly preserved things to see and display exhibits are testimony to the former Capital s influential past and its self-confident citizenry. TIP: in the Ducal City, the St. Veit autumn Wiesenmarkt (market) has virtually been a fifth season in the annual cycle for more than 650 years. Right on the Main Square St. Veit Museum beckons, with an exhibition covering the city s 900-year history. Together with the Transport Museum well worth a visit - it is not just a rainy-day attraction, but also offers a wealth of information and a point of reference for all visitors to the Ducal City. Young and old alike will be thrilled by the railway simulator, a true to life driver s cab, the elaborate model railway layout and the garden train. Despite its rich history St. Veit is not resting on its laurels. Quite the contrary: for years the city has also been a centre of innovation in the field of renewable energy. So, it comes as no surprise that the Energy Adventure exhibition is on display here in the middle of the city. Of its kind, it is unique in Austria and it is set in the incomparable ambience of the Fuchspalast (palace). The multi-media show is every bit as captivating as it is informative. An appreciation of renewable forms of energy is conveyed in playful style and the inter-connections are made visible and easy to grasp. Late-medieval Schloss Frauenstein is among the best preserved late-gothic buildings in Carinthia. Originally a moated castle, today it is private property. It is the picturesque backdrop for the starting places of numerous hiking paths criss-crossing Central Carinthia. TIP: Guided hiking tours around the Kraig palaces and Lake Kraiger See are particularly attractive. To the north of St. Veit lies Lake Kraiger See. This small bathing lake is warm in summer and idyllically situated. What makes the lake especially appealing is the availability of environmentallyfriendly leisure activities, such as hiking, running, swimming and cycling, or trips to the numerous fascinating ruins, stately homes and castles in the vicinity. TIP: To the southwest of the Ducal City, the completely unspoilt Lake Hörzendorfer See is a miniature paradise for anglers

4 6 8 9 DISCOVERY tour PAGEANT DINNER : TASTING THE PAST The delicious, five-course pageant dinner is fit for a prince and prepared according to original medieval recipes. Its setting is a unique show programme: jugglers, fire-eaters, belly-dancers, pipers, drummers, lute players and other artists perform as you eat. The programme of entertainment is individually adjusted to each group, contributing to a particularly mouth-watering experience. CRAIGHER: CHOCOLATE MAKES YOU HAPPY With its huge range of chocolate confections, the Café Confiserie Craigher chocolatier proves its point: diversity of taste before bland uniformity. Dieter Craigher meticulously nuances his latest creations, forever surprising his customers with new blends of tastes. Find out more about the production of Craigher Chocolate and the philosophy behind it on a guided tour. Friesach On the popular herald s tour, guests are met in the main square by a herald dressed in authentic medieval style. He is waiting to guide you through the oldest city in Carinthia. After sunset his role is assumed by a night watchman. Friesach SET IN STONE: TIME TRAVEL TO THE MIDDLE AGES Hardly any other city can rival the extent to which Friesach has preserved its original medieval character down to the present day. The fortified site with its city wall and water-filled moat, the castles, churches and monasteries are a standing invitation to journey into the past. The huge variety of craft artefacts and monuments make the whole city one complete artwork that just has to be experienced. TIP: The Friesach Spectaculum is Austria s most attractive medieval family festival, set in the unique ambience of a Dominican friary. BUILDING A MEDIEVAL CASTLE On a hill to the south of the city, a new castle is being built using only medieval techniques and working methods to match. Just as they were 800 years ago, wood, stone and metal are the most important building materials. Visitors are invited to look over the shoulders of the craftsmen at work. They can see for themselves how stones were carved in those days, how nails were forged, mortar was baked and finally how the walls were built up to create a castle. WAX ROOMS CAFÉ AND MUSEUM See feel experience enjoy. The wax rooms bring together the pleasures of top-quality food and drink and the traditional handicraft of the candle maker. From the small bee garden (where the wax comes from), by way of the preparation of a waxed cord, right up to the finished wax taper, take a trip though the world of medieval chandlers - and of the ginger-bread makers. Candle-making presentations and workshops are offered, as well as guided city tours with coffee and cake. When evening comes, the Gruselgang (walking tour) with hanging-judge Alexander von Friesach will make even the most intrepid shudder! 7 10

5 8 9 HOCHOSTERWITZ CASTLE A TRUE HISTORICAL EXPERIENCE Lake Längsee The armoury, the weapons collection and the fascinating collection of paintings from the Age of the Renaissance bear witness to the history of this unique defensive complex. The castle can either be accessed on foot, passing through 14 castle gateways (all of historical interest), or by taking the Fürst-Max-Bahn inclined railway. In the castle restaurant, visitors are pampered with Carinthian speciality cooking. Besides the splendid museum and the culinary delicacies, the castle also displays medieval handicrafts; this is a veritable world of adventures in which to immerse oneself. A comprehensive cultural programme including concerts, picture exhibitions and festive events invites visitors to explore the castle s multi-facetted diversity. Lake Längsee 13 ST.GEORGEN ABBEY: A RELIGIOUS HOUSE WITH AN INTIMATION OF ETERNITY GEORGIUM: SIPPING LAKE LÄNGSEE PINOT GOLFING AT LAKE LÄNGSEE AN UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE On idyllic Lake Längsee in the heart of Carinthia, this former Benedictine Convent has been a peaceful spot for more than 1,000 years. It is a powerful place too, where generations of people from near and far have found protection, solace and quietude. The oldest continuously inhabited monastic complex in Carinthia is still a spiritual site, bearing the imprint of the liturgical, sacred and economic work and practices of the Benedictine nuns. Entering into the third millennium, the remit of this facility underwent a further development: today it offers a hotel and seminar centre; guided tours of the old buildings are also readily available. Originality, responsibility, honesty: these are the values upon which this young, biodynamic winery bases itself. On the south shore of Lake Längsee Marcus Gruze and Uta Slamanig press Lake Längsee Pinot. The product of the interplay between nature and human ingenuity, between know-how and intuitive flair: simply a NatUrwein (a natural, authentic wine). Guided tours and tastings are offered at the Georgium, with or without culinary accompaniments (different price categories apply). You can also decide how long to spend in the vineyard, and walking round it, or tasting the wine. The Jacques Lemans St. Veit-Längsee Golf Club proudly presents itself deep in the historic heart of Carinthia and in the immediate vicinity of the sunny city of St. Veit. The rolling hills of the idyllic Central Carinthian landscape, the crystal-clear waters of Lake Längsee and St. Georgen Abbey all form a wonderfully impressive backdrop that keeps on inspiring golfers enthusiasm, time after time. The golf school, pro-shop and green s golf restaurant also have their part to play in ensuring that this exclusive golf club ticks all the boxes for a special, unforgettable golfing experience!

8 Althofen DISCOVERY tour Guided tours of Althofen Old Town, and the town s rich industrial history give unique insights into this age-old, still successful economic centre. HÜTTENBERG TOURIST AREA The Heinrich Harrer Museum displays fascinating exhibitionpieces telling the story of Harrer s travels and expeditions. Among them is a Buddhist prayer room that was solemnly dedicated by His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama in person. Opposite the museum, and clearly visible from a distance, can be found a Tibetan pilgrimage trail. The mining museum in Knappenberg tells of the mining families difficult work, their lives and traditions. Finds of artefacts and historically interesting tools are on display. TIP: The nearby Dolls Museum is also worth a visit. MUSEUM OF QUELLENKULTUR (SOURCE CULTURE): A MUST FOR ALL WHO ARE INTERESTED IN ART A must for anyone with an interest in art, because this is where source culture becomes art. The museum s existing holdings are juxtaposed with works by the artist Werner Hofmeister, to confront the visitor with a challenging but highly rewarding synopsis. Objects relating to the Region s cultural history are mirrored and reversed in Hofmeister s works. Museum visitors become involved in this game of mirrors and reflections, and they need to be able to let themselves to be drawn into it, to gain the full experience. Görtschitztal valley ALTHOFEN: PICTURESQUE MOUNTAIN SETTLEMENT AND SPA TOWN The distinctive Anna tower rises above one of the oldest still-inhabited mountain settlements in Austria. Visible from the far distance, the tower symbolises the living history that is Althofen s trademark. The town is an important business location for the whole Region and provides the ideal place for holidays, recreation and recuperation. Besides its spa hotel, Althofen also offers modern tourism establishments with their attentive hospitality and a plentiful range of entertainment opportunities. AUER-VON-WELSBACH MUSEUM: FOLLOWING IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF GENIUS Baron Carl Auer von Welsbach ( ) discovered four chemical elements, invented the incandescent gaslight mantle and the flint-and-steel lighter. He founded Treibacher Industrie AG and is regarded as creator of the OSRAM brand. The museum provides an overview of this fascinating personality s extensive work. There are exhibits here that can be seen nowhere else in the world, such as the first metal filament lamps, a fine collection of rare lighters and the earliest lighting fixtures. THE HIRT BREWERY: GOOD THINGS ARE CLOSE AT HAND The old saying good things are close at hand also proves to be true at the Hirt Brewery. Just a few steps from where the liquid gold is brewed, everything you need is in place for a perfect beer-tasting. The hospitality is typically Carinthian, with special regional delicacies and of course the brewery s full range of beers exactly the thing after hearing all about the century-old art of beer-making, on one of the fascinating brewery guided tours. THE SAUALPE (MOUNTAINS): RELISH FANTASTIC, DISTANT VIEWS With their broad foothills the Saualpe mountains are among the most attractive, pristine areas in southern Austria. In summer as in winter, their gentle slopes invite you to set off on long hikes. One can either go rambling over the beautiful natural landscape on one s own, or be shown the beauties of the Saualpe on a guided walking tour. From the Saualpe summits on a clear day you can enjoy a gorgeous panoramic view of the Koralpe and across the Karawanken mountains, as far as the distant Julian Alps. HÖRFELDMOOR MOSS AN UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE OF NATURE The best time of the day to explore this natural gem is early in the morning, when the last veil of mist is still drawn across the protected area. Take a walk through the unique, pristine paradise of plants and animals, with more than 500 species of butterfly, 125 bird species and numerous rare plants. TIP: The glass-walled Bäuerlicher Milchhof Sonnenalm show dairy (guided tours by prior arrangement) gives a glimpse behind the scenes. At the Cheese School visitors can try their hand as dairymen and dairywomen

9 GLANEGG CASTLE: LIVELY BUSTLE WITHIN THE OLD WALLS First mentioned in documents in 1121, Glanegg Castle is situated in the midst of picturesque vineyards. The castle-ruins are accessible almost in their entirety, and at the in-house Buschenschank (tavern) you can taste the Castle s own delicious wine. After Hochosterwitz and the Landskron, Glanegg Castle was the thirdlargest fortress in Carinthia. Tours of the castle are led by guides in medieval dress. The site is suitable for events of all kinds. There is a lively bustle within the old walls again. THE WATER-ADVENTURE FOOTPATH: A CLOSE-ENCOUNTER WITH PURE NATURE Gently babbling water. The continually rotating mill wheel. The coursing brook, profoundly impressive in its naturalness and beauty. This informative nature trail introduces the special features of this natural habitat. Guided tours and special programmes for children readily available. TIP: Set in the midst of the Wimitzberge Mountains, idyllic Lake Goggausee, with its outstanding water quality, is a recreational paradise for children and adults alike. Glantal valley Glantal valley LIEBENFELS CASTLE-RUINS AND CLIMBING GARDEN First records of Liebenfels date from The two massive keeps from the 13 th and 14 th centuries are most remarkable; they stand apart within an unusually extensive outer bailey. Guided tours and visits to the torture chamber are available by prior arrangement. Access to the climbing garden at the foot of the castle mound is free. For climbing enthusiasts it offers routes with degrees of difficulty from 4 to 7b. ST.URBAN ON LAKE URBANSEE St. Urban am Urbansee is amongst the most attractive and most popular places for family holidays and recreational activities in the Central Carinthian lake district. Days spent holidaying at nearby Lake Urbansee are like something out of a picture book: breathing fresh mountain air, basking in the warm sunshine and recovering that inner sense of balance and proportion. The hospitality of the locals, angling on the lake, neighbouring golf courses and such places to visit as castles, stately homes and other cultural gems, all combine to make holidays on Lake Urbansee a richly varied delight. SIMONHÖHE Simonhöhe near St. Urban is above all famous as a family skiing area and for the first ski school in Austria to offer guaranteed success. In winter it promises children and parents reliable snow cover on pistes ranging from easy to medium-difficult. In summer Simonhöhe is a byword for the most diverse sporting activities and for relaxation in the Central Carinthian lake district s unspoilt natural surroundings. Whether for hiking, horse-riding or mountain-biking, Simonhöhe and St. Urban offer all their guests the ideal prerequisites for an unforgettable holiday

10 GURK TREASURE CHAMBER: PRECIOUS ARTEFACTS FROM THE ROMANESQUE, GOTHIC AND BAROQUE PERIODS Gurk treasure chamber comprises a variety of precious artefacts: from finely carved sculptures, edifying panel paintings and richly embroidered vestments to priceless liturgical vessels. The exhibits are arranged by topic and by epoch, thus representing a crosssection of Carinthian religious art. Amongst the most impressive and unique items are the Weitensfeld Romanesque stained glass image of St. Mary Magdalene (from around 1170), the Gothic St. Peter and St. Paul Altar from Rangersdorf (1422), numerous baroque gems and votive offerings and testimonies relating to the popular cult of St. Hemma. Gurktal valley GURK CATHEDRAL: CARINTHIA S RELIGIOUS CENTRE This Romanesque House of God dating from the 12 th century is one of the most significant buildings in European sacred art. The hundred-pillared crypt accommodates the tomb of St. Hemma, and, along with its frescoes, the Bishop s Chapel houses the famous Fastentuch (Lenten Veil). The Cathedral is an important station on many pilgrim trails, several of which intersect here. Its tranquil, relaxing park invites you to linger on. TIP FOR THE LITTLE ONES: THE GNOME PARK Not far from the Cathedral can be found the colourful, well-loved Gnome Park, with its dreamy little train rides a world of its own for our youngest guests. METNITZ DANCE OF DEATH: IN DEATH WE ARE ALL EQUAL The Metnitz Dance of Death refers not just to one but to two outstanding cultural artefacts: the cycle of frescoes with its inscribed banderole at Metnitz ossuary, and the folk-play performed in front of the ossuary by amateur actors and choirs every four years. In both forms these representations date back to the Middle Ages and deal with the same theme: the equality of all people in the face of Death. All too often unexpectedly, and always remorselessly, Death steps out in front of every individual and, as it were, summons him or her to the dance. The adjacent museum houses an excellent documentary history of Europe s most significant Dances of Death. FLATTNITZ: AN UNSPOILT HIKING AREA Tranquilly embedded between tree-covered mountains and pristine woodland lies Flattnitz. This wonderful hiking area was already used as a pass by the Romans, as they made their way into the north. Lake Flattnitz and the Hirnkopf (mountain) are inviting places for an easy hike across the alpine pastures. Being situated on a high plateau, the Flattnitz mountain air has also made it a well-known health resort. Far from the hurly-burly of the big ski resorts, in winter young and old alike are treated to the pleasures of snow-assured pistes that are safe from avalanches. Metnitztal valley STRASSBURG CASTLE AND ITS FOLKLORISTIC COLLECTIONS SCHLOSS PÖCKSTEIN (PALACE): CARINTHIA S LITTLE SCHÖNBRUNN SEPPENBAUER CAR MUSEUM: EXPLORE THE HISTORY OF MOTOR SPORT METNITZTAL FOLK TRADITION MUSEUM IN THE GEMEINDEHAUS (COMMUNITY HALL) Straβburg s well preserved castle was originally built as a bishop s residence. Subsequent changes to its fortunes have been marked by various phases of destruction and reconstruction. The museum at Straβburg castle displays its folkloristic collections in an attractive setting. This comprehensive exhibition of rural life in Gurktal valley is complemented and rounded off by presentations that illustrate traditions, games and popular religion. TIP: The Weitensfeld Kranzelreiten (rider s competition) is one of Carinthia s loveliest festive traditions. (Every year on Whitsun) Calling Schloss Pöckstein Carinthia s little Schönbrunn is certainly no exaggeration. Here Salzburg architect Johann Georg Hagenauer created one of Austria s most significant early- Classical buildings in an outstanding synthesis of the arts. The resplendent palatial residence of the prince-bishops was built in the 1780s, beside the road to the Romanesque Cathedral of Gurk. It contains fascinating state rooms and boasts a very impressive baroque garden. The Gasthof Seppenbauer inn scores especially highly for its delicious meals, its invitingly comfortable guest rooms and its popular Hirt Brewery speciality beers. What s more the inn includes its own entertainment package: the Seppenbauer car museum. The exhibits consist of more than 30 absolute classic automobiles, as well as an impressive collection of Vespas and motorcycles. The museum even boasts a motorcycle prototype by Gerhard Porsche. You don t need to be a dyed-in-the-wool motor sport fan to feel the thrill! Bei uns daham ( At home with us ) is a permanent exhibition at the renovated Gemeindehaus, covering every facet of folk tradition in the Metnitztal valley. The women of the local Tradition Group have preserved precious cultural assets for future generations, in that all the exhibits are modelled on genuine traditional designs and are hand-made. Some of the items are life-sized and taken straight from the everyday rural round. The Museum also maintains and revives the ancient custom of Kinisingen (epiphany singing) in the Metnitztal valley recognised from UNESCO as Intangible Cultural Heritage
