Boat Rides and Cruises on Lake Weissensee

Sailing and boating in Carinthia, Austria

Relax with a leisurely cruise on one of the Lake Weissensee boats. These run between Techendorf and the eastern shore of Lake Weissensee from May to October. Europe’s first hybrid ship - the Alpenperle - takes you gently across the lake as you marvel at the imposing Gailtal Alps.

These ships can also be hired for events. Have you ever thought about getting married on board a boat? A wedding on the lake is an unforgettable experience. Numerous popular events, such as "Aufwort’n am See" or cocktail days, are testament to our special location in Carinthia, Austria.

Lake Weissensee is also the perfect place to combine a boat trip and hiking. Explore the Weissensee Nature Park on 200 km of hiking trails and let the Weissensee Schifffahrt boats take you part of the way. The boats stop at eight landings and you can get off where you like. This is also a great way to reach many mountain bike trails.

Boatbuilding on Lake Weissensee

At Lake Weissensee, we don’t just use boats - wooden boats are also constructed here in a unique way. For two generations, the specialists from Bootsbau Domenig in Neusach am Weissensee have built boats out of wood. You will find these wooden boats for hire on many of the lake’s beaches, and they can also be rented directly from Bootsbauer Domenig.

Sailing in Carinthia, Austria

The cleanest lake in Carinthia is also a hit with sailors. The eastern part of the lake features a constant easterly wind, and on the western side you will find a gusty wind, typical of alpine lakes, which is excellent for both sailing and surfing!
