The former mining town of Bad Bleiberg is nowadays a place for relaxation and wellness. It lies at the foot of the Dobratsch Nature Park – and it is from the mountains that thermal springs with healing powers spout. Thanks to their unique microclimate, the local healing galleries are used in particular to treat allergies, stress and chronic respiratory diseases.

Furthermore, Bad Bleiberg is an excellent choice as a starting point for nature walks – hiking and Nordic walking are very popular here – discover hiking trails such as the Stollenwanderweg, the walk through the Markusstollen or the Dobratsch Rundwanderweg. And you won’t be disappointed if you head here in winter either. You’ll have a wide range of options, from sledging to hiking through the fabulous snow-covered landscape to snowshoeing. If you want to stretch your body, you can also try the intergenerational playground – it features a variety of play elements and encourages interaction and togetherness across generations.

And if you’re keen to immerse yourself in the rich local mining history, you can visit the Terra Mystica Museum – a wonderland in the mountains charting 700 years of this tradition.
