Water in Carinthian lakes is clean enough to drink, it comes gushing out of healing springs and bubbles up in the spas enriched with valuable minerals from the depths of the earth.
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.

Warming up nicely again after an active day in the snow and relaxing at the same time – an important part of intensive winter enjoyment. Carinthia offers a wealth of choice with its thermal springs, spas and lake swimming pools. There are two brand new exceptional oases of wellness: the KärntenTherme in Warmbad-Villach and the first Carinthian bath house on Lake Millstätter See.
They are the moments that families find moving, amazing and full of sheer enjoyment. Moments you would like to hold on to forever. On a relaxed summer holiday in Carinthia. With Kärnten Family – on the sunny southern side of the Alps!
