Region Wörthersee

Nestled between the Alps to the north and the Adriatic to the south, near the border with Slovenia and Italy and between the towns of Klagenfurt and Villach, is one of the best-known summer holiday destinations in Austria: the Wörthersee region.

This region is a paradise for water sports lovers and sun worshippers, renowned for its party and lifestyle scene, a yoga hotspot and meeting place for bikers, hikers and runners, with Europe’s highest wooden viewing tower and traces of the Neolithic period.

Summer on Lake Wörthersee

Reaching up to 28 degrees, Lake Wörthersee is a playground for anyone devoted to water, whether on water skis, a wakeboard or an SUP board, in a sailing dinghy or motorboat. As well as water sports in summer, in the last few years all sorts of leisure facilities and ways to slow down have developed away from the water too, in the countryside surrounding the lake.

Golden autumn

In late summer and autumn in particular, nature takes over. Golden rays of sunlight meet the yellows and reds of the vegetation, contrasting the turquoise of the lake. For many people this is the most beautiful time of year for an active holiday by Lake Wörthersee, with hiking, cycling and sightseeing tours of the region.
