Welcome to Feistritzer Alm

General Information

One of the last alpine pastures along the KHW is Feistritzer Alm on the Eastern base of Oisternig. Rustic huts among the picturesque landscape are popular resting points for hikers as well as mountain bikers.

The little chapel “Maria Schnee” is well known for the 360 ° degree views including the Julian Alps as well as the mountain peak of Drobratsch.

On the first Sunday of every August the traditional “Kirchtag” (fest with music and culinary highlights) is celebrated on Feistritzer Alm.

The area around Feistritzer Alm is popular with WWII history buffs as multiple bunkers and underground barracks can be found nearby. Fortifications built in the late 1930’s as part of Mussolini’s strategy, but never been used in any military operations, can be viewed a short distance from the hut.

KHW 403
