Must do

WASSER FUN – At a apartement house on the lake, of course, the themes of water fun and water sports are a top priority here. Besides swimming, paddling and rowing, there is a lot on offer around the lake: Boat rental, water skiing including school, tire and banana rides, diving courses, Ossiachersee boat trip....

HIKERS will find wonderful trails where they can enjoy the beauty of our natural landscapes. Especially popular are the Slow Trail Bleistätter Moor nearby, the Peterlewand, the Steindorfer and Finsterbacher waterfalls, the Ossiacher Tauern, the Gerlitzen, the Dobratsch...

Carinthia is a true paradise for CYCLISTS. If you want to take it easy, you can cycle along Lake Ossiach without any ascents, but mountain bikers will find their challenge here, as well as racing cyclists. Afterwards enjoy a rest at the lake, in a café or in one of the cozy guest gardens.

Must see live!

Carinthia without its EVENTS would be like a flower without fragrance. But it is not only the big events, like the Carinthian Summer, the top-class symposia, the theater events, the Open Airs, the Ironman, the Harley Week, or the appearances of world stars, which give themselves a rendezvous at the castle ruin Finkenstein.

The charm and identity of our country are reflected above all in the many small, traditional events: parades, farmer & craft markets, traditional costume events, customs & enjoyment festivals, square concerts. Carinthia is simply living and vibrant diversity!


Strolling & shopping

Do you want to buy typical Carinthian items - traditional handicrafts or clothing, do you want to take the tastes of Carinthia home with you or just stroll and store? The nearest cities are Villach, Klagenfurt and Feldkirchen.

Weekly markets are more popular than ever, as is shopping directly from the producers. A trade in hand finds gold in every land again, as proven by the many local, innovative businesses whose high-quality products are in demand all over the world!

Rainbow Programme

Carinthia is known as the sunny side of Austria. And Carinthia is already the south! Well, sometimes even the sun needs a break. But that's no drama. As we all know, there is no such thing as bad weather. Either dress well and go out into nature or take advantage of one of the many indoor offers!

So off to the museum, the indoor swimming pools, the stalactite cave, the cheese dairy, Gurk Cathedral, the Porsche Museum, the coat of arms hall in the Landhaus or the planetarium. But there is much, much more - also for children!
