Summer holidays with children in Carinthia
The Nockberge Mountains – the best playground for little nature detectives
Come and enjoy an expedition with your offspring in the Nockberge Mountains: here a groundhog, there a fawn. On the meadows of the Nockberge Mountains cows graze and butterflies dance in the air – there is so much to discover.
If the roosters are crowing in the Nockberge Mountains, the farmers have probably already been awake for a few hours. Mooing cows need to be milked early after all. Young foals also get hungry early. In the Nockberge Mountains you will also find numerous cultivated pastures. The shepherds are always happy to let little nature detectives look over their shoulder while they work.
Discover the nature of the Nockberge Mountains in Carinthia
How close can you get to shy deer? How old is the huge oak tree? See a small mountain lake here and a petting zoo there. And along the trail you’ll spot a groundhog. Deer stands may be in the distance. A doe can be seen grazing in the clearing. You will love your holidays with your family in Austria!
A good question for your hikes: What animals leave their tracks in the Nockberge Mountains? This can be a fun guessing game for young and old alike.
You should always pack binoculars in your backpack, so that your little detective can spot everything there is to see. And if you want to take home permanent memories of your child’s excitement, bring a camera along too.
