“Awesome Lake”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

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 and I lived in Italy! There are nice beaches and camping near by, as well as hotels.

“Nice lake and nature”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014

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.

“A Great Day or Days Sightseeing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

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 and choirs will fill the air with music and song. And a great casino for those who love to gamble a bit.

“Clean water”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014

First to the title: the water of this lake is very clean, you can drink it (I would not try that in a public bathing beach).
There are lot of all kwater sports possible at the lake. In summer the water temperature is very nice, up to 24°C.
In the villages araound the lake there are a lot of shops, cafes, restaurants, discos and in Velden is also a casino . The only disadvantage is that the public access to the lake is pretty limited. So visitors normally have to go to public bathing beaches (costs some Euros) or they stay in a hotel with an own beach
