We are ex pat Brits (now own Kitty B&B in Portschach am Worthersee). We are just 3 minutes walk from this beautiful lake. There are many shops, restaurants and cafes. You can swim in the lake too!

The lake is in a beautiful setting; surrounded by white topped mountain peaks and lush greenery. Very peaceful and definitely relaxing. The sort of place you can sit on a bench, reading and enjoying the calmness. There are a number of restaurants and hotels around the shore. The ferry crossing is worth undertaking just for the views. I think I... More

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!

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.
