The holiday region of Arnoldstein in the Gailtal (Gail valley) is in immediate proximity of the so-called Dreiländereck – the corner created by the three countries of Austria, Slovenia and Italy. Here, at this cross section of three European cultures – namely the Germanic, the Roman and the Slavic culture – the word boarder doesn’t mean sectioning yourself off, but rather being the golden centre of something special.
Each of the unique cultures has left its mark on Arnoldstein, which visitors, guests and holidaymakers walk on day in and day out. For instance hiking along the 3-country-trail or along the numerous bicycle and mountain bike routes.
What about the winter? One of the most beautiful ski resorts of Carinthia is waiting for you at the Dreiländereck – it is small, perfect and family friendly. With perfect slopes and personal atmosphere guaranteeing winter wonderland skiing fun. Away from the ski slopes guests can enjoy beautiful winter walks, an eight kilometre long tobogganing run as well as over ten kilometres of cross country skiing routes.
This beautiful countryside deserves a traditional Carinthian song, I hear you say? One of Carinthia’s most famous choir “Grenzlandchor Arnoldstein” does just that. And providing culture pure are the monastery ruins of Arnoldstein (Klosterruine Arnoldstein). The refurbished ruins act as culture centre for concerts and festivals. Don’t miss out on the other local attractions like the local museum, the Schrotturm at the Fuggerau (tower), the Pöckauer Wasserfall (waterfall) as well as the exciting bunker museum Wurzenpass that is spread over a sizeable 11,000 square meters.
Arnoldstein also offers specialities to fans of local products. You will find exciting products that are made in Arnoldstein, such as organic cosmetics at “Manufaktur Mandorla” and organic oils at the farm “Der Gams”. Don’t miss the guided tours that both businesses offer!
