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

We loved the surroundings of the lake. We would have liked if the boats were more frequent. The towns on the lake were interesting

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.

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
