Mountains and lakes

Located on a high plateau with three mountain lakes (Turracher See, Grünsee and Schwarzsee), the village of Turracher Höhe is home to Austria’s largest continuous stone pine forest and framed by the gentle yet impressive peaks of the Nockberge mountains.

Here mountain walkers, hikers, runners, Nordic walkers, mountain bikers and everyone else who enjoys nature and loves the mountains, will come into their own. Further unique attractions include the Nocky Flitzer alpine roller coaster and the Nocky’s AlmZeit family adventure park right off the Panoramabahn cable car's mountain station.

Winter fun

Between November and early May the varied winter wonderland Turracher Höhe with its snow assured slopes, reaching up to 2,205 m in altitude, attracts visitors with scenic cross-country trails, winter walking paths and a mountain lake which turns into an ice skating rink in winter.
