About this spot
Mt Dobratsch (Dobrač in Slovene) is 2166m high mountain near Villach town in Austria. It is very popular with locals and the whole area is protected as a nature park.

At the top there is a mountain hut where its possible to stay overnight and have an excellent mountain food.

Dobratsch can be visited year round - in summer season there is a road fee. In winter the trail up to the lodge is well maintained and for the road to the parking place snow chains are recommended for your car.

The main subject is the church, Maria am Stein, which is best lit by the evening sun.
