Ready for holiday?

 

Spend your holiday in the therapeutic climate of lake Weissensee in Carinthia. The region was awarded the European Tourism and Environment Prize and was recently declared a nature reserve, not by coincidence indeed.

 

"Soft winter tourism" and "active summer in a therapeutic climate" are the philosophies of the Weissensee region in southwest Carinthia. Here you will experience a summer or winter holiday of unparalleled diversity.

 

On the following pages, you'll find information regarding the various activities in Weissensee, nature's playground, as well as the right landlord of your room or flat.

Hotels, inns, guesthouses, bed and breakfasts, private landlords, farm holidays, holiday flats, and campgrounds are waiting for you.
