Ossiacher See is a much quieter destination to its nearby more ritzy Worthersee. There is a ferry service and water sports to be had. Day trips to Viilach, Klagenfurt and Velden are worthwhile and a train line takes you from Villach along the northern shoreline...More

We live nearby so we just made a half day visit. First we went to see Affenberg and later we took a swim in the lake in St. Andra. The beach was perfectly maintained. The grass was spot on. There is also a pebble part...More

The Ossiacher See if cool place to spend a couple of days, it's nearby the motorway going either north or south.. The water and the views are very cool. The city is not that concentrated and you need to drive for most of the things,...More
