Region Wörthersee

Get to know new facets of winter

Numerous ski regions can be reached in a short time, and cross-country skiers, tobogganists and winter hikers will also find their ideal territory. Lake Wörthersee delights its guests even outside the classic seasons with a wealth of offerings you would never suspect to be here in such numbers.

Christmas Markets at Lake Wörthersee

One place sure to put a smile on little faces is the "Town of Angels" Velden by Lake Wörthersee. The entire town is decorated with lights, and little ones cannot be quick enough to help the hardworking angels at the post office, in the bakery or craft lounge. Fairytale boat trips across Lake Wörthersee are particularly popular too, as are the pony rides in the Kurpark and journeys on the angels’ train. Wish lists are sent straight to Father Christmas, attached to balloons that are released into the sky. From 22nd November.
Those in search of a more reflective experience should visit the "Silent Advent" in Pörtschach. A small market on the promenade by the lake, filled with life by local heritage groups, associations and initiatives. The path of lights along the promenade draws on all of the senses, with torch-lit walks around the protected area of the Pörtschach peninsula to the "living crib". Tip: Advent boat with message in a bottle and trip through the sea of stars. From 22nd November.
Things are equally placid on the southern shores of Lake Wörthersee. The romantic Church Advent awaits guests and locals on the Maria Wörth peninsula, with its wide range of concerts in the pilgrimage church and wooden huts selling culinary delights and crafts. From 23rd November.

Carinthia’s bathhouses

The tradition of seeking summer freshness, which had its origins in the 19th century, continues in Carinthia with bathhouses open all year round. They can be found right on the shore of a lake, integrated into the landscape and with fantastic panoramic views over the lake and mountains. Carinthia also has numerous lake saunas, which are inviting places to unwind.

The historic Werzer’s Bathhouse on Lake Wörthersee has been renovated with great attention to detail. The building, which was first constructed in 1895, has been newly built under the guidelines for the protection of historic monuments. The result is a perfect symbiosis of traditional ambience and many new facets. Lake saunas with direct access to the lake provide intense moments, while a variety of oases of calm invite you to relax.
