The citrus garden is open all year round. TIP - We recommend a guided tour with lemon pioneer Michael Ceron followed by a tasting. Free of charge with the Erlebnis CARD.
Landskron Castle has so much to offer and is always worth a trip. The old fortress is considered a landmark of the region. A special highlight is the bird of prey show in the eagle arena. In a 45-minute show, you will experience flying birds of prey and a spectacular bird show. The Affenberg (Monkey Mountain), which is located below Landskron Castle, is always worth a visit. It is Austria's largest monkey enclosure and is home to over 160 Japanese macaques.
DOBRATSCH NATURE PARK
Villach's local mountain is only 20 minutes away by car. The local recreation area has a lot to offer. You can reach it via the Villach Alpine Road, one of the most beautiful panoramic roads in Austria. There are several attractions along this road. Visit the Alpine Garden, look down into the depths on the "Rote Wand" viewing platform or hike to the summit at 2167 metres above sea level. The Dobratsch Nature Park is always an experience in summer as well as in winter.
