Do you wear sturdy shoes, good all-weather clothing and are you familiar
with hiking in the high mountains? Then you should tackle one of the wonderful hikes on the Mölltaler Gletscher. The Eisseeweg starts directly at the panorama restaurant Eissee and is an ideal excursion for families with children , just like
the Duisburgerweg towards the Duisburger Hütte. The glacier hiking trail, the high altitude hiking trail or the crossing into the Kleinfragant requires more skill and
you should have some mountaineering experience. With the Kärnten Card
you get a free ascent and descent once a day in summer
(Stollenbahn Gletscher Express & Gondelbahn Eissee/without sports equipment)!
