This is one of the places that I immediately fell in love with when I came to Austria. The whole area is so beautiful and it's also near other great places worth going to, especially with kids.There's Europapark close by where they have the Spielplatz (the big playground). The lake itself offers (beyond the lake) several other things for kids... More

The round trip ticket will allow you to board and alight at any of the numerous stops as the ferries zig-zag their along the Lake. I believe all the ferries can offer... More

We have been coming to Klagenfurt and the Worthersee for the last 8 years and have always had an exceptional time. There are few places you can visit with such exceptional countryside, gourmet food, and a lake so pure that the water is of drinking quality, and most enjoyable for swimming. The towns of Veldon, Portsach and several others west... More

It has a great bike route around and you may also take a stroll in parts of the path around the lake. You can also enjoy water sports on the lake itself.

Worthersee is a beautiful lake that offers so many to visitors. On the eastern side there is Klagenfurt, or to be more precise Europa park and Minimundus that offer a nice a walk for everyone. The northern side of the lake has many beautiful 19th century villas and leads to Velden, tourist place with wonderful hotels. During winter times Velden... More

The lake Woerthersee is one of the most famous lakes in Austria. The view over the lake is outstanding. In July and August you have endless possibilities to go swimming. You should definitively have seen it!
