Golzentipp – a hike for young and old
From the top station of the Golzentippbahn, the trail leads to the lake Jochsee, which invites you to take a break. When there is a clear view, Austria`s highest mountain, the Großglockner, appears within reach. A highlight for children is the Kinderspielmeile. Eight play stations along the trail ensure fun and variety. They cannot only climb, romp and follow the watercourse but also prove their dexterity. After a break at the lake the peak of the Golzentipp, the Tilliacher’s local mountain, can be reached. It offers a panoramic view of the Hohen Tauern in the North, the Lienz Dolomites in the East, the Carnic Alps in the South and the Sesto Dolomites in the West.https://obertilliacher-bergbahnen.com/
