Falkenstein towers over the Möll valley near Obervellach as a picturesque "fairy-tale castle". Slightly higher up, Oberfalkenstein castle is now a ruin. From Obervellach, as well as from the village of Gratschach, there are undemanding hiking trails to both castles.
Why not combine a stroll through the romantic mountain town of Obervellach with a visit to the splendid parish church of St. Martin? Allow yourself to fall under the spell of its impressive architecture and the precious works of art in the church interior.
Visiting the late Gothic parish church of St. Vinzenz is very popular and not just because of its location directly at the foot of the highest mountain in Austria. Renowned well beyond the state borders, this pilgrimage church can tell its visitors a fascinating story.
Already distinctive from a distance the cone-shaped Danielsberg mountain stands proud at the entrance to the lower Möll valley. The mountain consists of especially hard rock so that the glaciers of the Ice Ages were not able to grind it down.
Marterle is the highest altitude pilgrimage church in Carinthia, standing at 1,836m above sea level.
There is an access road from Rangersdorf and it offers a fabulous view of the Kreuzeck Group and the Lienz Dolomites. It is also the starting place for some very worthwhile walking tours.
