Turracher Hoehe, Turrach

(4.8/5 based on 20+ reviews on the web)
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).

  • Came from Moscow, skiing in Austria, and here +7. It turns out 2300 km on the machines and all in vain? No, here we still find snow! Yes, artificial, but enough much! Lifts open from 9-0000, and it's probably the best time for skiing. Italians, Germans, Czechs and local tighten around 10, so you can go on great tracks and without "traffic jams" on the lifts. That pleasantly surprised-the lack of car parking fee, immediately recall our Sochi, there's simply madness. But at the same time, strikes an attitude to skiing, you can easily stand up to them or uperetsja stick in a queue on a lift-no one protects them because maybe 50% rental skis and they don't care, they came only to ski for Entourage and sit in cafes. By the way, with regard to the slopes, you can probably pick up-under any and for and for the advanced user (when we coached team from the Czech Republic). But even here there are two wonderful entertainment: skating on at the Lake with completely transparent ice and sledding along the road from the top of the mountain from the pipes! Kids are just happy, speed up to 40 km per hour, the age restrictions with 8 years one and can be accompanied by an adult on my 2 years. The descent lasts about 5-7 minutes, depending on how will press on the brakes). Highly recommend putting glasses and warm gloves, which are not flushed!

  • The Turracher Höhe is a small but very nice ski resort in the Nock Mountains. Guaranteed snow from mid-November to late April offers a lot of variety the Turracher Höhe. Nocky Streaker, the Funslopes or the snow and fun Park brought much change for our children (14 and 16). The cabins are great, even if the Apresski is still room for expansion. Apart from the large ski resorts, a vacation on the Turracherhöhe brings plenty of recreation. The slopes were despite the generally poor snow conditions in perfect condition. We will be back!

  • A very nice place; summer and winter. In the summer you have nice hiking trails. In the winter you can ski all day long.
  • Awesome resort.
  • Hours home :-) Super ski area, but also in the summer, especially the Nockiflitzer and to the food to the realm of time (or alternatively also like the Meizeit)
