It was my first time when I swam in the lake. Such calm waters, clean beach, everything is so organized. I loved it!

Having grown up in Klagenfurt as the child of a British Army major, I simply loved our balmy days at the lake in summer. I try to swim in the Worthersee each year, even though I live in Vancouver. What a magical place with great restaurants, hotels an nice local people. I love this spot!

A lake with a certain flair. Fifties and sixties memories. Above all a lovely area to visit, watersports, good hotels and restaurants, lots of things to see and do.

I first visited this lake four years ago and had to return. It is lovely, even on a dull February day!

The 18 km long Carinthian bath tub (water temperatures up to 27°C) is ideal for family vacations. From every spot along the lake you can visit one of the many sightseeing points, most of them included in discount Kärnten Card.

This is one of the most beautiful lakes that we saw on our recent trip. The water is crystal clear and we were lucky enough to strike a beautiful sunny day. We drove around the foreshore and saw that there were quite a few boats on the water as it was a weekend but unfortunately we had not allowed enough... More

We drove around the beautiful lake to catch a glimpse of the scenery after a long day a the exhibition venue. Boy were we glad we did - what a beautiful lake it was! Beautiful forests around it, would be wonderful to stay in one of the old hotels and take hikes or lake cruises.

We love the lake. The water quality is excellent and is my best outdoor swimming lake. Great place to spend time. Lots of places to eat drink and watch.

The very best way to see the lake is to take a cruise. We did the evening dinner cruise lasting 3 hours from 7 to 10 on the steam boat. Dinner was an excellent buffet. Tons of the stuff and lovely. A saxophonist did his bit when it got dark and my party of 40 old Motorcyclists were very happy.... More
