Enjoy Life on the Banks of Lake Wörthersee
If you need to cool down after a long hike, just jump into crystal-clear Lake Wörthersee – but don’t worry, the lake never gets so cold as to be uncomfortable. Or you might just want to spend the day enjoying the sun in one of the many lidos around the lake.
In the evening, visit one of the hip beach bars or first-rate restaurants on the shores, and watch the sun set over the lake. A fruity cocktail in hand, you’ll listen to the waves pattering and watch the warm sun rays reflect in the water’s surface. That’s living!
Lake Wörthersee or Lake Wörth is the largest lake in Carinthia, and, due to climatic conditions, one of the warmest Alpine lakes. In summer, the water – of drinkable purity, by the way – reaches temperatures of 28°C. When the lake freezes, it becomes one the largest skating rinks in Austria.
