How about, for example, a weekend in Carinthia and a hike on the Alpe-Adria-Trail, the new star on the long-distance hiking sky? To do something for the health and the mind. The first leg of the Alpe-Adria Trail – from the Kaiser Franz Josefs Höhe at the foot of the Grossglockner to the idyllic mountain village Heiligenblut – is ideal for a weekend trip.

This spectacular section is perfect for beginners for several reasons: it is mostly pleasant downhill, but you should have trekking poles with you for the sake of your joints. In addition, you start right in the heart of the Hohe Tauern National Park, Austria’s breathtaking natural heritage. You will not forget the view of the majestic Großglockner! And beyond that, you’ll be exploring Carinthia’s mythical heritage. Particularly exciting is the legend of Heiligenblut, to which the picturesque Bricciuskapelle reminds. Legend has it that Briccius, who bore the blood of Jesus, died in an avalanche. Refresh yourself at the fountain by the chapel, this water is known for its healing ability.
