Plöckenhaus (c) oeav-obergailtal
Welcome at the Plöckenhaus

General Information

Rich with history and tradition, Plöckenhaus is situated on the main road to the Italian border from Austria. The imposing Cellon, historically invaluable Großer and Kleiner Pal and the wide Angerbach valley make a great visual impact on every visitor to the Plöckenhaus.

History buffs will not be disappointed with historical hikes to both Kleiner and Großer Pal to view the preserved trenches, camps and vantage points of WWI. The hike to Cellon also offers many opportunities to view remains from WWI as well as experience a range of Geotrails.

The Plöcken area also showcases the impressive possibilities for the production of eco power. Two artificial lakes (Cellonsee and Grünsee) as well as the only two wind turbines in Carinthia are used to produce energy for the surrounding areas. The visualisation centre ‘Hydrosolar’ allows an insight into this advanced technology.
