For bikers and car drivers the roads are almost too wonderful for words,  – our  30 plus specifically created routes for Garmin & TomTom Sat Navs will allow you to make the most of whatever time you spend with us, and if you don’t use a GPS we have paper printouts to use in conjunction with our route notes and a good old fashioned map!

Hikers too are spoiled for choice, with paths and tours extending from the gentle stroll to the high alpine trek.

If you just want to come and relax and sightsee, you too will find plenty to do – so many of the museums, exhibitions, cable cars, boat and toboggan rides are free or reduced with the Kaernten Card. Families especially benefit, as there are a range of activities and attractions in the area specifically designed with the younger visitor in mind.

And of course, if you just come to enjoy our wonderful scenery, mountains, lakes, rivers, and alpine meadows, then those too are all easily accessible by car, bike, bus or on foot.

Winter obviously brings different, but equally exciting options – 3 ski areas within 25 minutes’ drive, ice climbing on our doorstep, as well as snow-shoeing, sleigh rides, cross country ski tours to tempt you. Not far away you will find the highest lake in the Alps offering season-long public ice skating and the chance to watch the Dutch long distance champions practice.

 
The Malta Valley is a place of great natural beauty and a haven for those seeking to enjoy the benefits of the Alpine landscape. The valley boasts many waterfalls, (including the highest single drop in Carinthia), the highest dam and reservoir in Austria, a range of walking and cycling paths to suit all levels of fitness, a meandering river, quiet, shady forests and sunny meadows both in the valley and up on the ‘alm’, the high pastures. Local providers offer the opportunity to try out a range of activities such as cycling, climbing and abseiling, bungee-jumping, canyoning in summer, ice climbing, snow-shoeing, cross country skiing and tobogganing in the winter.

 
For the culturally minded the little town of Gmünd has many very interesting museums and galleries and hosts a variety of different exhibitions, concerts and other events throughout the year. Traditional festivals and celebrations abound and music is the centrepiece of them all, with the Town Bands of both Gmünd & Malta often performing.

Being on the sunny southern side of the Alps and at an altitude of 846 metres we enjoy long hot summers and winters designed for skiing and other winter sports. Springs are crisp and clear, autumns are warm and colourful – there is really no time to visit.For bikers and car drivers the roads are almost too wonderful for words,  – our  30 plus specifically created routes for Garmin & TomTom Sat Navs will allow you to make the most of whatever time you spend with us, and if you don’t use a GPS we have paper printouts to use in conjunction with our route notes and a good old fashioned map!
