In Austria’s sunny south more than 200 warm swimming lakes, most of them pure enough to drink, invite you to take a swim. Joyful living and relaxed enjoyment come naturally here. Sparkling water, a mild, almost Mediterranean climate and the glorious mountain and lake landscape nestling in the Alps-Adriatic region, which shares borders with Italy and Slovenia, form a perfect setting for being active, relaxing and enjoying life.

We are off on a varied journey of discovery covering approx. 750 kilometres. Through three countries – Austria, Italy and Slovenia – and three cultures. From the foot of the majestic Grossglockner to the azure blue sea. On the Alpe-Adria-Trail – with heavenly views in the “Garden of Eden”. With views over a well balanced mix of glorious spectacles of nature, alpine water experiences and a fascinating world of animals and plants. Along lakes, streams and rivers until we reach our destination, the Adriatic.
What would winter be without a sauna and hot thermal water? Definitely not winter in Carinthia. This year a very special temple of wellness is enjoying its first winter season: The completely newly built KärntenTherme in Warmbad-Villach is setting new standards.
The Kärnten Card is the key to adventure, fun and lots of advantages. It opens the doors to more than 100 destinations in Carinthia, and you may return to your favourite attractions on as many days as you like. Furthermore we have more than 60 bonus partners, who allow exclusive reductions to all visitors with Kärnten Card.
In a country which is characterized by rivers and lakes and in which environmental protection is important, the fishes also feel right at home - and thus a small paradise opens up for all lake and river anglers.
A school ski course here means a trip organised by the school (primary, secondary or vocational school in Austria or abroad).
Alpine skiing pleasure that leaves no wishes unfulfilled – in Carinthia, winter guests have a vast choice among the most beautiful alpine regions: between Heiligenblut and Nassfeld, between Bad Kleinkirchheim and the Möll Valley Glacier. In total there are 1,028 kilometres of alpine pistes.
Tradtional entertainment, regional delicacies, relaxing leisure hours on the sun terrace and a mountain panorama to knock you out: Carinthia's ski lodges pamper their guests with only the best here.
