I actually visited this lake for Ironman Austria. The water quality is super clean and is an amazing turquoise blue. The mountains in the backdrop had snow. It is simply a beautiful lake. Bike riding in the area was great as well. There must be some money in the area, as I have never seen so many Lamborghini's and Ferraris's... More

We wanted to take a walk along the cost of the lake which is not possible as apparently Austria allows privately owned shorelines. It was only possible to come to the lake shore in the village centers. Otherwise it would have been a perfect weekend.

The Worthersee is one of the larger lakes in Europe. From Klagenfurt to east end and Velden in the west a circumnavigation can be done in an afternoon but that would limit the sight seeing. It has all the normal attractions you would expect -swimming, boating, sunbathing, walking, etc. but also beautiful churches, gasthofs (restaurants/bars). At harvest time local bands... More

Lush place to stay and chill when the weather is nice!| There is many restaurants and cafes around, so you stop and go for a walk or swim. I fell in Love!

26 degrees Celsius or more from July onwards is usual and the biggest seebath in Europe is to enjoy a beautiful day with your family. Entern a ship and go from Klagenfurt to Velden and you will see one of Carinthia's most beautiful places.

It surprised me the high temperature of the water. The park surrounding the lake is very nice also for running, biking or wandering with the family.

Beautiful turquoise water of beautiful Lake !!! This place is so relaxing and awesome at the same time, not only in the day but at night time, it is equally vibrant. People who are going to visit Lake Worthersee, don't forget to visit the nearby places like VELDEN and VILLACH, it is worth spending a night or two there as... More
