Carinthia

The rugged beauty of Carinthia is an overlooked secret to the tourism world. Hundreds of splendid lakes speckle a landscape marked by high peaks and gouged valleys, most notably the Grossglockner, Austria's largest mountain. The nearby Pasterze Glacier can be reached by funicular railway. Carinthia is a great destination to visit in the summer - many villages host summer festivals, complete with folk music and performers from nearby Italy and Slovenia. The walled villages of Friesach and Gmund are a treat, as is the impressive hilltop fortress in Hochosterwitz.
