Hiking Holidays in a Therapeutic Climate

Holidays at Lake Weissensee in Carinthia

Experience the ideal combination of a mountain and lake holiday at the Weissensee Nature Park in Carinthia, Austria.

Explore the mountains around Lake Weissensee on 200 km of marked hiking trails that begin right in town and take you up to 930-2,300 m above sea level. From level walks around the lake to steep, rocky climbs to the mountain summits; from lush green forests to flowery alpine meadows - the Weissensee Nature Park offers plenty of variety for your hiking holiday in Austria.

Nine themed hiking trails in the areas around the lake and alpine meadows are sure to be a real treat. Go looking for forest glass or learn about Weissensee legends on a fairy-tale trail along the lakeshore.

If you prefer to hike in a group, simply join a joint tour with our local hiking guides. Beautiful mountain tours are waiting for you. 

Along the trails you will find lovely places to rest, as well as many chalets that serve food and drinks. Or do you prefer to take things easy? The Weissensee Schifffahrt fleet of boats and the Weissensee Bergbahn chair lift are excellent companions.
