The Eisenkappler circular Geotrail


Length: 18,6 km

Height difference: 715 m

Walking time: 5 hrs 50 min total


Ideal point to start

The ideal point to start this trip is the Geopark Karavanke Information Centre at the market square in Bad Eisenkappel.


There are numerous rest stops along the way. This geotrail most clearly shows the wide variety of different rocks, with its magmatites, the crystalline basement, the diabase, the southern Alpine Mesozoic, the Palaeozoic, and finally the Periadriatic Seam which forms the boundary between the Adriatic (once part of the African plate) and the European tectonic plates.
