The longest "Flow Trail" in Europe.

At 11 km long, the Petzen Flow Country Trail is the longest flow trail in Europe. This route was honoured in 2014 by the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) as the best Flow Trail of 2014.
With your bike safely stowed as luggage, let the gondola lift whisk you right up to the entrance to the trail. Along the way, while cruising down the mountain, riders can enjoy it to the full while putting their skills to the test.

Countless tables, ridges and steep curves await all those who take on the tarmac-gravel fixed track, which wends its way elegantly with a slope of about 10% through the local mountains of southern Carinthia and into the valley. You will also find rest and stopping points as well as waiting spots, to avoid any clashes between slower and faster trail users.

 Definitely fun, but keep in mind it can cause motion sickness if you ride it without breaks.
