Bad Eisenkappel, also known as Eisenkappel, (Slovene: Železna Kapla) is a municipality located in the Vellach Valley in the Karawanken mountain range with nearby peaks: Obir, Peca, and Olševa. It is the population center of the market township of Eisenkappel-Vellach (population 3,038) of the Völkermarkt district in the State of Carinthia, Austria near the border of Slovenia.

Bad Eisenkappel was first referred to by the name Kappel in 1267. It was officially renamed in 1890 to Eisenkappel.

The area is known for its hiking and cycling trails, as well as for the extensive Obir cave system, which has been mined for lead ore since at least 1171, and has been open to the public since 1991. Frommers says "Eisenkappel is the major stopover in the valley. This town is surrounded by centuries-old forests and mineral springs, and because of its position as a frontier town only 15 km (10 miles) from the Austro-Slovenian border's Seebergsattel Pass, it also offers many cultural and historical attractions. There are many sky-blue lakes and white mountain peaks near Eisenkappel. Lake Klopeiner, to the north of this town, is the warmest lake in Carinthia. Eight kilometers (5 miles) to the southwest you'll see Trögerner Gorge."
