Get lost with us through our photogallery in picturesque mountain town of Kötschach-Mauthen, Carinthian district of Hermagor. We are in Kötschach-Mauthen as many winter sports lovers do. Right in the town is a nice ski resort Vorhegg/Kötschach - Mauthen. It is set at 700 to 1400 meters. To our surprise, in the winter season skiing is great with almost no waiting in ski tow lines.
