Kleiner Pal Historic Hike

Interested in World War I history? We’ve heard about the battles significant to the allied forces, including the Western Front, Somme, Gallipoli and other famous battles, but what about the battles that were also of real strategic significance to The Great War that we don’t hear so much about?

During World War I the border pass above Kötschach-Mauthen became a theatre for the Italian campaign of 1915–1918, when Italian Alpini troops tried to push northwards into Carinthia, though to no avail. As both sides soon concentrated on attrition warfare, numerous bunkers and tunnels were constructed, the remnants of which are still visible today.

The hike to Kleiner Pal encapsulates stunning views from start to finish and begins at “Plöckenhaus” where a cable system was developed to accommodate Austrian troops on the front line. During the hike you will have the opportunity to view and walk through WWI storage bunkers, tunnels and vantage points, which were dug into solid rock by soldiers fighting on the pass. Summiting the hike you will be able to explore the Austrian and Italian front line and trenches that have been preserved to the present day.

We then hike down on the Italian side of Kleiner Pal where there are also several chances to view remnants from the war. The hike draws to a close on the Austro-Italian border. There lies a single restaurant, frequented by village locals, where you will be rewarded with traditional home made pastas and house wine. (Post hike meals at own cost)
