Tulwitz Round

This hike from Fladnitz an der Teichalm up to Rechberg shows how idyllic the "countryside" can be. The Pröllhofer Inn is a cosy place to stop for a bite to eat.
Tulwitz is one of the districts in the new municipality of Fladnitz an der Teichalm. The village is characterised by the beautiful farms that nestle picturesquely against the hills of the Passailer Kessel.

The trail starts in the centre of Fladnitz and leads along meadows, pastures and forests almost up to the Rechberg Pass. From there you have one of the most beautiful views over the Passailer Kessel and the surrounding alpine pastures and peaks. The way back then leads in a large arc through Tulwitzviertl, Egg and Obertulwitz back to Fladnitz.

The Pröllhofer Inn on the top of the Rechberg is a popular inn with a beautiful panoramic terrace, and there are also refreshment stops in the centre of Fladnitz.
