Nock region – mountain pasture majesty

The Nock Mountains are a natural stage for adventures of a unique quality. Whether you are alone, part of a group, or with a ranger and guide, the gentle mountain world of the Nock Mountains biosphere park invites you to discover nature any time of year.

 

In the summer, the biosphere park and nearby towns have their own adventure programmes that bring children and adults closer to nature. In addition, there are numerous excursion destinations, info points, and rest points in the Nock Mountains.

 

Since its opening, the Nockalm Road is a popular excursion destination, by car, motorcycle, bicycle or by foot. Along with numerous impressive natural landscapes, you will also find many inns, rest stops, themed paths and playgrounds. The Nockalm Road runs through the middle of the park but does not disturb the beautiful natural surroundings.

 

Excursion destinations in the heart of the biosphere park

  • Bring body and mind into peaceful harmony – visitors can enjoy the Trail of the Elements and Circles of Stone along the way to exercise and find their personal inner strength. 
  • Not far away, at Lake Windeben, you can follow a nature path into the Nock Mountains.
  • It takes you to the Grundalm, where the "Silva Magica" nature park shares the secrets of nature with its visitors. 
  • A particularly impressive attraction is Karlbad. According to ancient customs, a "fountain of youth" of sorts promotes wellness, and the hut there is run traditionally, with no electricity.
  • You will also find park info stations along the Nockalm Road. There is a multimedia show at the Glockenhütte hut where you can get a first glimpse of the national park.
  • But the Grundalm warns that you will become one with nature, feel the powers of Mother Earth, and find harmony with the beginning of time.
  • The Zechneralm  Alpine farming museum will take you back to years gone by.
  • In the Pfandlhütte, young and old will find a fun exhibit of the marmot.

The Alpine huts of the Nock Region

Take a step back from civilisation, forget about the daily grind, and leave the hustle and bustle behind. How about a mountain hike through the beautiful biosphere park of the Nock Mountains with a stop along the way at one of the many rustic Alpine huts?

 

When the innkeepers sit down with you at the table to have a chat or you simply enjoy the rustic atmosphere, you learn a lot about the natural surroundings and sometimes hard life in the Alpine meadows.

 

But this is where you can stop and take time for real pleasures. Here you can slow down and take a break. Refuel with regional specialties made mostly here in the Alpine meadows using local ingredients, such as bacon, cheese, butter, freshly baked bread and milk from happy Alpine cows. You can taste the freshness and oneness with nature – something you simply have to do when hiking!
