Ferlach

The southernmost town in Austria, situated at the foot of the Karawanken mountain chain, looks back over a centuries-old tradition as a town of gunsmiths.

The gunsmiths’ craft that is unique to Ferlach was honoured in 2010 by UNESCO as part of its intangible cultural heritage. This craft, which has a rich tradition, is presented at Ferlach Castle in the Gunsmiths and Hunting Museum. The fascinating nearby Carnica Bee Museum in Kirschentheuer provides information about the tradition of beekeeping. Here you can discover interesting details about the Carnica bee and its interactions with the human habitat. Ferlach is also a good starting point for hikes in the Karawanken and cycle tours on the Drau Cycle Path.

Particular gems of nature are the wild yet romantic Tscheppaschlucht Gorge with its high ropes course, and the Meerauge kettle lake and Märchenwiese fairy tale meadow in the Bodental Valley. The idyllic swimming pond in Reßnig is an inviting place for swimming and fishing.

In winter the romantic winter landscape of the Bodental Valley delights visitors with facilities for downhill skiing, ski tours, snowshoe hikes, and cross-country skiing along trails awarded the piste quality seal.
