Zwolfernock is one of the lower tops at ridge of Mount Dobratsch.
From the summit extends wide panorama of Julian Alps, Karawanken, Nockberge, Carnic Alps and Hohe Tauern and of course main summit of Dobratsch. Under summit are interesting karst formations like karts funnels.

Getting There

The best way to get to Zwolfernock is a toll road Villacher Alpenstrasse.
Starts next to Ski Jump in Villach in Villach-Möltschach.
End of the road is parking Rosstratte 1732m. From here is a wide road leads to Dobratsch, crossing its nothern slopes. When we reach about 2000 m, on the left is Zwolfernock. No marked path leading to the summit, so we have to go through the grassy slope to the summit.
When we see a triple cross, we are sure that we got to the target.
It is very easy and short hike with wonderful views, only 317 meters of the approach.
