Geotrail Copper Ore Path
The Copper Ore Path is very much the backbone of the Ore of the Alps UNESCO Global Geopark. It leads from St. Veit across the sunny alpine terrace above Mühlbach to the Arthurhaus below the Hochkönig, continuing via the former miners’ path to Bischofshofen, into the very heart of the Geopark, to the Geopark Visitor Center and over the Hochgründeck to Hüttau. The Copper Ore Path offers countless experiences and takes you past an array of natural, cultural and historical highlights. The geo-sites and panoramic views are especially impressive. Complete information can also be found in the book “UNESCO Geoparke in Österreich“, Pfeil Verlag 2017
