New: Slow Trail Pressegger See

Slowed down through the reeds - Slow Trail openend 

With the "Path through the reeds", which will open in June 2019, the Nassfeld-Pressegger See region has its first slow trail.

I first see the mountains with their peaks rising up steeply into the blue sky. The Gailtal Valley Alps and the Carnic Alps protectively surround Lake Pressegger See here. Its dense reed belt only allows for a narrow path. Between the high blades, I discover a great crested grebe. Its grey plumage glistens in the sun. I watch it for a while and continue on my route to the steep slope of the lakeside from where the view to the typical Carnic mountain peaks with Nassfeld is especially beautiful. Further down at the glistening water balances an old boathouse. A few swimmers slowly take their laps and I think to myself: I’ll soon be joining them.

The Slow Trail around Lake Pressegger See starts at the Hermagor Lido. At least 1.5 hours should be planned for the easy, around 6 kilometres long hiking tour. It would be even better if you don’t set a time limit and enjoy the relaxing moment of every step through the beautiful reed landscape instead. Start your tour. Walk through the portal. Draw on the power of the moment. 4 stations invite to stop for a while.

Accompanied by the clear blue of the lake. Seeing the lake from new perspectives again and again. Taking the lake’s glistening into the forest where the mind rests in green tranquillity.
