Our Wednesday tour

The Garnet - Gemstone of Love

The "Granattor" stands high up on the ridge of the ridge. It is reminiscent of the largest garnet deposit in Europe, located inside the Millstätter Alpe. Whoever passes through the gate enjoys the view over Lake Millstätter See and faces two worlds: the lush green alpine pastures of the Nockberge mountains and the snow-capped peaks of the nearby three thousand metre peaks.
