The Gailtal Valley
The Gailtal valley itself is about 90 km long and stretches almost straight along a geological fault line from west to east. The valley (in Carinthia) is bordered in the north by the Gailtaler and in the south by the Carnic Alps (or Karawanken). Between Hermagor and Görtschach, near the Gail at 560 m above sea level, lies the small Lake Pressegger See. From Kötschach-Mauthen the valley floor of the Gailtal valley widens and is partly covered by swamps (especially between Görtschach and Gailitz).
The settlements of the Gailtal valley lie on the hillside terraces and alluvial cones. The Untergailtal (from Hermagor) is also characterised by valley narrowing, for example at the Villacher Alpe. The Gailtal valley is developed by the Gailtal Railway, which runs from Kötschach-Mauthen to Gailitz. Main towns: Kötschach-Mauthen (705 m), Dellach (672 m), Hermagor (602 m) and Vorderberg (565 m).
