Natural. Happy. Laughter.

Summer swimming fun, children's programme and time for two: a family holiday at Lake Weissensee offers all family members an all-round carefree package in a natural paradise, including many unforgettable holiday moments.    


Water like in the Caribbean, fjord landscape like in Norway: In the middle of the Gailtal Valley Alps, on the sunny southern side of Carinthia, fascinating experiences between mountain & lake are waiting for you and your family.  

The swimming lake, with water temperatures of up to 25° C, is the hub of your family holiday. Together with the children, you can go on leisurely tours (hiking tour including raft trip & fish sampling), enjoy a boat trip on the Alpenperle or take part in the weekly children's programme. The free of charge access to the lake and lakeside beach at your host’s establishment and the many possibilities for activities in the nature park complement the range of leisure facilities. Particularly useful: if you stay at a Mobility Card or Weissensee PremiumCARD partner establishment, you can travel by boat, bus or mountain railway at any time. Thus, you stay flexible even without a car!  



One of the most important elements of a holiday with children? The on-site children's programme. Explore the area around the turquoise-blue waters together on a family holiday at Lake Weissensee. Our Nature Park Ranger Programme combines the most beautiful natural sites with entertaining adventures. The children have fun with sports activities, while parents enjoy their time as a couple. Among other things, the lake and the surrounding area offer:

  • Lakeside lidos

  • Child-friendly theme hiking trails  
  • Weissensee Children's Olympics
