3. Natural Jewel Schütt
The Schütt mountain area south of the Dobratsch offers a unique flora and fauna in Europe, where you and your four-legged friend can enjoy a relaxing break. Numerous hiking trails lead from the fire station in Upper High Court to the extensive idyll, where you regularly encounter the cool Gail River during your hikes.

4. Worounitza sandbank
Do you fancy water fun in a stunning turquoise lake? The Worounitz River constantly supplies Lake Faaker with fresh water from the Karawanken mountains. But that's not all - the lake also owes its beautiful turquoise colour to the river, which transports finest lime particles to valley. These are then reflected by sunlight and form the unique turquoise colour of Lake Faaker. If this has sparked your curiosity, it's best to go on a refreshing tour along the Worounitza opposite the sandbank beach pool on the east bank of Lake Faaker.

5. Old Bleiberger Street
Do you enjoy peace and quiet? Then you will find just the right place for yourself along the old Bleiberg Street. From Mittewald at Villach follow the Kadutschengraben along a gentle forest path to the river Weißbach, which will accompany you from here onwards for the rest of your walk.
