    The joy of autumn

    Enjoy the unique “hip” style of Lake Wörthersee

    Carinthia’s largest lake combines many advantages in one place. Seeing and being seen is what counts on warm summer evenings, as the last rays of the sun dip down into the lake in a golden light and you sip your first cocktail in one of the fashionable beach bars.

    You can then treat yourself to a delicious dinner at one of the 27 award-winning restaurants around the lake shore, which serve specialities of the local Alps-Adriatic cuisine such as freshly caught Carinthian salmon.

    For those who like the active life there is all the variety of a cycle tour around the lake, on a racing bike, an e-bike or a mountain bike, whichever you prefer.

    You can enjoy a journey through time on a cycle tour that takes in the well known architecture of Lake Wörthersee. The splendid villas dating from the Renaissance period are the dominant feature of the landscape, and with their magnificent views over the lake have influenced the work of famous personalities such as Brahms and Mahler.

    If you would rather leave the shore and take a trip over the peaceful, turquoise waters of the lake, you can try the new trend sport of “stand up paddling”. There are several hire centres located all around the lake offering different options.

    For a relaxing hour or two, you should visit Werzer’s Badehaus. Nowhere else can you find such a harmonious combination of the traditional and the modern. The building, which dates from 1895, has been lovingly restored, and since 2013 has enjoyed all the advantages of a modern spa: lake saunas, a pool which is heated throughout the year, atmospheric “oases of peace” and a gourmet restaurant will fulfil your every desire.
