Wander in the secluded forests on the south shore, on the panoramic peaks of the surrounding mountains or through picturesque valley – Lake Millstätter See offers you hikes through stunning landscapes. Here, you can gaze upon the green mountains called "Nocken" and enjoy the breathtaking view of Lake Millstätter See with its warm, mineral-rich water. Whether you enjoy leisurely walks, a good hike or challenging multi-day tours, you will find your hiking happiness at Lake Millstätter See.

On the two Slow Trails Mirnock and Zwergsee, you can let your soul relax and become one with nature by taking things slow. The unique panoramic box seating allow you to fully enjoy the magnificent Lake Millstätter See panorama — ideal for a break for two. It becomes especially romantic on the "Weg der Liebe. Sentiero dell´Amore" ("The way of love"). Whether as a couple or with your family, here you can reflect on all facets of love, enjoy the unmistakable view of Lake Millstätter See and search for ruby-red garnet stones — the flint of love.

Long-distance hikers will get their money's worth on Lake Millstätter See Höhensteig. Over eight stages, the trail takes you once around the lake. You will hike over the Nockberge mountains, through the Drautal valley and pass beautiful places such as Spittal an der Drau or Seeboden am Millstätter See. Of course, you can also just walk individual sections of the Höhensteig and enjoy the unforgettable panoramas of Lake Millstätter See as a day hiker.

Your hiking experience at Lake Millstätter See is completed with a variety of overnight accommodation options. From rustic huts to cosy hiking hotels and charming guesthouses to extraordinary panoramic boxes on the lake or mountain – the "bivouac under the stars. Rifugio sotte le stelle." Here, you will find everything you need to leave everyday life behind and experience a perfect hiking holiday.
