The Dobratsch (also Villacher Alpe, Slovenian: Dobrač) is a 2166 m high mountain in Carinthia (located west of the city Villach) above the green meadows of the "Villacher Alpe". It is Carinthia's best vantage point thanks to its exposed position between the Drau and Gail Valleys, the southern Limestone Alps and the mountain glaciers on the edge of the Carinthian lake plateau. The Dobratsch owes its distinctive form to the two greatest landslides in the eastern Alps.
Two earthquakes released a total of 530 million cubic meters of rock over an area of 12 kilometers from the southern flank of the Dobratsch, burying the lower Gail Valley down to a depth of 80 meters. This area is appropriately named "Schütt" (detritus). The gigantic rock masses would correspond to a 530-meter tower on an area of one square kilometer. The area of the Dobratsch is a protected natural preserve.
The Sendeturm Dobratsch (Dobratsch Transmitter Tower) is a 165-metre high tower on the Dobratsch mountain (2115 m asl) near Villach in Carinthia, Austria. Dobratsch Transmitter Tower was built in 1971 and is the second highest FM and TV broadcasting system in Austria. It consists of a concrete tower which carries a guyed steel tube mast on the top. The Dobratsch Transmitter Tower is primarily used for broadcasting of FM radio and TV programmes. The Dobratsch transmitting site was chosen after it was found that Pyramidenkogel site which was in use since late 1950s could not offer satisfactory coverage for the rugged topography of Carinthia. The administrative name of the Dobratsch transmitting site is KLAGENFURT 1.
