Wellness & Yoga - holidays in Central Carinthia
Knappenberg belongs to an old mining community and is located at almost 1,100 metres above sea level in the North of Carinthia. The market town of Hüttenberg, the location of the JUFA Hotel Knappenberg****, is a world-renowned mineral site. In addition, it is the home of the legendary mountaineer Heinrich Harrer. Through his friendship with Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama, the Tibetan pilgrimage trail "Lingkor" became a far Eastern cultural element in Central Carinthia.
In order to find peace and balance, your journey does not have to lead you to distant Tibet – the best way to plan a wellness holiday in the spirit of intercultural exchange is with a stay in Knappenberg. A wonderful view over the landscape gives you peace already when you check-in. The facilities pamper families and wellness enthusiasts with a 2-storey spa, sauna, steam bath and a sun terrace with a café. For social moments we recommend our bowling alleys and also the play areas for kids (indoors and outdoors).
The Central Carinthian region is ideal for hiking and geocaching enthusiasts. Well-developed hiking trails through the Görtschitztal valley, interesting facts about our earth, iron production and exciting castles inspire young and old.
The JUFA Hotel Knappenberg**** in the village of Hüttenberg is the link between the Tibet Centre Knappenberg, "Heinrich-Harrer-Museum" and the „Carinthian Music Academy“. Under the motto "Dialogue of Cultures", it became an international meeting place. Discover the cultural diversity of the world in Knappenberg!
