Event Highlights in the Carinthian Winter

In Austria’s sunny south, visitors can expect numerous events full of skiing and other sports activities, as well as traditional festivities.

Ski before 9am with Franz Klammer

Skiing before 9 on three dates

Skiing “Emperor” Franz Klammer, still a star well beyond his Carinthian home region, will be taking to the slopes with “normal” skiers as part of a new promotion. On three dates this winter, the skiing before 9 with Franz Klammer, will start at 6.45 at the valley station of the Kaiserburgbahn, where Klammer will be waiting for guests and will also accompany them to a warm-up breakfast. From 07.30 to 09.30 the programme features free skiing with Klammer on the World Cup slope. This will be followed by skiing enjoyment part two: an exclusive brunch with specialities from the Adriatic-Alps cuisine in the Klammerstubn, which was created in the Kaiserburg mountain restaurant in honour of the idol. The promotion, which admittedly only experienced skiers should join in, will be accompanied by ski guides and costs € 125 per person, including breakfast and brunch, as well as a two-hour ski pass.
