Slow Trail Lake Pressegger See

Slowly through the reeds - "Slow Trail" at Lake Pressegger See

My first glance is up at the mountains, their peaks rising steeply towards the blue sky. The Gailtal and Carnic Alps form a protective frame around Lake Pressegger See. Its dense reed belt only opens up a narrow path. I spot a great crested grebe among the high stalks. Its grey plumage shimmers in the sun. I watch it for a while and continue on my way to the steep slope of the bank. From here I can see the typical Carnic mountain peaks with the particularly beautiful Nassfeld. An old boathouse balances on the glistening water below. A few swimmers slowly do their laps. And I think to myself: soon I will be one of them.

STEP INTO the sea of reeds at the lake



LET GO of the worries of everyday life

RETURN INVIGORATED from your journey

The Slow Trail around Lake Pressegger See starts at the lido in Hermagor. You should plan at least 1.5 hours for the easy 6-kilometre hike. But it's better not to set yourself a time limit, instead enjoy the relaxing moment of walking amidst the magnificent reed landscape. 

Start the journey. Pass through the portal. Draw on the power of the moment. 4 stations await and invite you to stay a while.

Journey to the roots of good taste:

The Gailtal Valley, Lesachtal Valley and Lake Weissensee are located along the Carnic Alps in Carinthia in the south of Austria.
