Bad Kleinkirchheim Holidays

Alpine spa resort on the sunny side of the alps

Situated in the south of Austria in Carinthia, the spa resort of Bad Kleinkirchheim is a great base for your summer holiday. Close to the Italian and Slovenian border and surrounded by the majestic peaks of the Nockberge Mountains, the region enjoys a mild climate. For your holiday in Bad Kleinkirchheim, you can enjoy the free BKK and Carinthia cards included for all guests which allow free use of cable cars, walkers' buses and free entrance to local attractions. The resort is well known for its healing springs and the Alpine valerian plant which is used for many of the available spa treatments. It is a great region for hiking, swimming and cycling. Don't miss a trip to the beautiful Millstätter Lake. We also recommend a hike on the famous Alpe-Adria-Trail, which connects the three countries Carinthia/Austria, Slovenia and Friuli-Venezia Giulia/Italy.
