Hike to Dobratsch summit from the highest (and last) parking lot from the Villacher Alpenroute.

Beautiful hike with a scenic route and a lot to see around. View on Italy, Slovenia and major part of Carinthia. Several mountains chains can be seen and a good amount of wildlife can also be observed. 

/!\ This path bypasses the DANGEROUS Jägersteig. Definitely a better and safer alternative!

Author’s recommendation

This route is an alternative to the Jägersteig, which is to be avoided (dangerous!). Much more scenic and tranquil route for a chill ride through Dobratsch!
