Rennweg am Katschberg is a market town in the district of Spittal an der Drau in Carinthia, Austria. It consists of the Katastralgemeinden "Rennweg", "St. Peter" and "Oberdorf".


Rennweg is located in the "Katschtal", the upper part of the valley of the Lieser River, a tributary of the Drava. Its location on the "Katschberg Straße (B99)" highway near the "Katschbergtunnel", connecting the states of Salzburg and Carinthia, gives its citizens and travelers access to the Tauern Autobahn (A 10). The "Katschberg" mountain area is considered one the largest skiing resorts in Carinthia bringing much of Rennweg's reputation.

Nearby Establishments

Gmünd, a town in the south of Rennweg, acts as a connecting point between the "Liesertal" and "Maltatal" valleys. Spittal an der Drau, the district's centre, is located in the southeast of Gmünd.

The Millstätter See, a nearby lake acts as an attraction for tourists. By traveling further south on the Autobahn the city of Villach can be reached.



The "Katschtaler Trachtenkapelle", a group of Volksmusik instrumentalists, has played its share in the local concerts of the area. The music heard here is often found only in places like Rennweg, small villages that have not left behind the cultural music that has for centuries been a part of the Austrian culture.


The Saint George parish church can be found on the western side of the "Katschtal" valley. Saint Peter, another church on the eastern side of the valley has recently been renovated. It is located at the small village of "St. Peter".


The "Katschberg" area is a popular ski resort at the border of Salzburg and Carinthia. It lies on a plateau directly above the "Katschberg Tunnel", at an altitude of 1,641m. The upmarket ski resort consists mainly of four-star hotels and vacation apartments, most of which have access to the ski lifts. It retains a strong traditional atmosphere, as the local culture is regularly celebrated in folkloric evenings.

Katschberg’s 60 km of ski slopes span across two mountain tops. The resort’s longest run is six kilometres, leading from the top of "Aineck" mountain to the village of "Sankt Margarethen". The ski slopes are serviced by a system of 16 lifts with a capacity of 24,000 people per hour.
