We did a 3 hour trip round d the lake having visited Mahlers composing hut in the woods. Great scenery and a nice Leisurely sail round he lake. We were fortunate with the weather on what sadly has been a very poor summer in Austria.

The lake is a decent size, is very clear and appeared to have sand on the bottom. There are several beautiful paths/walks around it. You can easily rent boats, paddle boosts, etc. The view from several of the lakeside restaurants is outstanding. The water seemed warm enough for swimming.

I live about 1 hour away and Ive never really visited the place before. The Lake boasts drinking quality water that is so clear you can see deep down. The lake area offers boat trips, a bathing beach and lots to do such as kayaking, segway tours, cycling, running etc There are many restaurants dotted around this wonderful lakes and... More

Relaxing, the best way to see the lake is by Kayak. Didn't like the fact that all of the land adjacent to the lake is privately owned individually and therefore you are restricted to the public (pay beaches), or the swanky hotels, to get to the lake.

Sometimes called the Carribean of the Alps - Worthersee is a large lake with a number of little villages surrounding the lake itself. A bit touristy but understandable as it is a great location for just wandering around. We had a great lunch at the Hotel Pruller outdoor terrace overlooking the lake. We later took a drive around the entire... More

A cruise on the 17 km long Woerher See is a must if you are in the area. You can board at any of the many ports of call, then leave at a stop of your choice; you have roughly two hours to explore the town and then catch the next ship to continue the cruise. We stopped at Maria... More

It was also the sugestion of a nice lady woking in the Klagenfurt Turist Info. The trip takes around 2 hours if you do not stop in every village -... More

A beautiful lake whichever side you tackle it from - the south shore is better as you don't have the main Villach-Klagenfurt motorway and you get stunning views back across the Nockberge and the Hohe Tauern mountains. Velden is a great spot for just meandering around, grabbing a cold drink or a bite to eat by the waters. Almost Mediterranean... More

You'd never believe we could have found this place by accident, but that's exactly what happened! We were on a road trip across europe and looking for a hotel near the border with slovenia. Our sat nav recommended a hotel a couple of miles off route, so we headed there. Around the lake, the town has the look and feel... More
