The Nockberge Mountains are not just suitable for trekking cyclists or mountain bikers; they also offer some great stretches for road cyclists. Get yourself crowned as the “Nockalm king”.
In particular the striking shapes of the Nockberge Mountains with their lush, gentle mountain ridges and clean lakes create an ideal setting for all road cyclists. It doesn’t matter whether you want to conquer large differences in altitude or prefer tours around the lakes – here there is the ideal route for everyone. And don’t forget the “Carinthia Cycling Marathon Bad Kleinkirchheim”, which has taken place annually since 2009 and whose grandstands take the shape of the round Nockberge Mountains and Lake Millstätter See.
Carinthia Cycling Marathon Bad Kleinkirchheim
This cycling marathon is a big hit due to the beauty of the scenery along the route. The Nockalmrunde circular route forms the core of the 35 kilometre panoramic road through the Nockberge Biosphere Park. Two sweat-inducing mountain classifications are the Schiestelscharte (2,024 metres above sea level) and the Eisentalhöhe (2,042 metres above sea level). The rider who takes first place in the Carinthia Cycling Marathon Bad Kleinkirchheim is crowned “Nockalm king” on the Eisentalhöhe.
