Together with the Biosphere Park ranger you will take the Nationalparkbahn Brunnach cable cars from St. Oswald up to the mountain station. Experience an unforgettable excursion into the gentle mountain world, and learn much that is worth knowing about the fascinating alpine valerian plant.

With its bitter, tangy scent the valerian plant is considered to be both harmonising and stimulating at the same time. The strongly scented roots of the precious alpine valerian are used to manufacture oils, soap and other cosmetic products. The circular hike into the habitat of the alpine valerian will take you up onto the Mallnock and across the Oswaldeck to the Falkerthaus. Once there you will experience a valerian footbath in the distinctive wooden troughs. You will be spoilt in culinary terms with regional fish specialities from the Carinthian Alps-Adriatic cuisine.
