Nature has retained its original form in the Nockberge biosphere park in Carinthia, which became a biosphere park in 2012. The Turracher Höhe and the Hotel Hochschober are at the edge of the biosphere park and a good starting point for your expeditions. Gentle grass mountains, pine and larch forests and numerous alpine flowers make up the scenery.

The Nockberge biosphere park stretches from the Lungau in Salzburg to large parts of northern Carinthia to the Turracher Höhe. Its owes its name to the roundish, over 2,000 m high Nockberge. Characteristic trees in the biosphere park are the robust pines and larches. The needles of the larches turn a golden yellow in late autumn and the mountain blossom enchants visitors in June/July. The largest ski region is the one on the Turracher Höhe.
