Please note the exposed location on the mountain!

The two holiday apartments are at 1500m, in the middle of a skiing and hiking area. There is NO supermarket or local supplier on the Kanzelhöhe, there is only an evening restaurant (Waldschenke Edelweiss - irregular opening times). Lunch is possible in one of the many huts on the mountain (close by - 800m - the restaurant of the Kanzelbahn mountain station); NO meals possible in the evening; at least as long as the neighboring hotel with its restaurant is not yet open (opening date December 2022)!

The nearest supermarket is in Treffen, di. 9 km via the toll road in the valley!

Leads to wrong addresses on the Kanzelhöhe!!

Kanzelhöhe Gerlitzen

The Kanzelhöhe is a 1524 m above sea level. A. high pre-summit of the Gerlitzen north of Lake Ossiach (10 km2), ten kilometers north-east of Villach (61,000 inhabitants) in the border triangle (AT/SI/IT) in the federal state of Carinthia. The sub-summit stands steeply above the lake and probably has its name because of the impressive view.

Until the 1980s, the "old pulpit" was the former mountain station of the Kanzelbahn, a cable car that brought holidaymakers from Annenheim am Ossiachersee to their summer resorts or to go skiing. In the meantime, the old cable car has been replaced by a modern monocable cable car (4-seater gondola); the mountain station was relocated from the "old pulpit" about 1,000 meters up the mountain to the "Kanzelhöhe". Between the Kanzelhöhe and the summit (difference 400 meters in altitude), there are currently 13 lifts (new lifts currently under construction!) with 63 kilometers of slopes for skiing; in summer, the "Gipfelbahn" (6-seater chairlift) takes vacationers up to 1,900 meters.

In the Kanzelhöhe area there are a few private houses that are mainly used for rental purposes. The apartment complex in which our two suites are located emerged from the former Swiss HAPIMAG holiday complex, which was filleted by investors and divided into a hotel (opening in December 2022) and 59 private apartments.
