Turracher Höhe, also called Turracherhöhe, refers to a village, a pass across the Alps, and a countryside in the Gurktal Alps in Austria. The village and the Turracher Lake at the pass, which both share the same name, are separated by the border of the two federal states of Styria and Carinthia. Because of its distance to early settlement areas and its high location, the region was not settled until relatively late. In the 17th century, mining was started below the Turracherhöhe. The opening up of the top of the pass by a paved road did not occur until later. During the 20th century, the region was gradually developed for tourism. Efforts are being made to maintain the diversity of flora and fauna of the Turracherhöhe by means of landscape conservation areas and careful and nature-oriented extension of the tourist facilities.GeographyGeographical locationThe Turracherhöhe is situated in the Nock mountains, the western part of the Gurktal Alps. The area extends from the peaks of the Rinsennock (2,334 m) in the west to the Lattersteighöhe (2,264 m) in the east; in the north-south direction, it extends from the village of Turrach to the plain of Reichenau in the south. Somewhat farther away are the peaks of Eisenhut (2,441 m), Großer Königstuhl (2,331 m), and Gruft (2,232 m).

  • We were skiing beginning March, it had snowed the day before and even during our visit Though say that there are 42 km of trails seem more, everything revolves between the two sides of the Lake. tracks on one side and the other in a very beautiful, almost magical. One side c and less vegetation and the other turns in the Woods ... very nice Staff at the shelters and works nice and smiling, all modern facilities across the Lake with skis on c and service see, a tractor that you trolling from one part to another, even if they cross the Lake on skis requires maybe 5 minutes. The environmental impact of the district and facilities around the Lake and very discreet some hotels on the shores and many chalets nestled like a crib in the adjacent Woods. Good variety of slopes (we are beginners and can turn almost everywhere) Nice for hiking with snow shoes definitely very beautiful even in summer recommended for a visit of three four days to consider also the proximity to the area of Bad Klainkirchem (15 km) famous also prr spas
