The pleasure of running

 

Weissensee - the pleasure of running Force yourself to smile while running, is one of the favourite mantras of the world's self-appointed running gurus. However, we promise that the smile will come naturally while you run on the trails leading through the green oasis of the Weissensee valley in Carinthia's Natural Arena.

 

 

Raise your fitness levels on the 12 running trails around Lake Weissensee. All trails were measured, colour-coded and signposted to facilitate orientation.
Every detail was taken into account: for instance, stretching bars of different heights are situated at the beginning and end of each trail. Signs with guidelines on pulse frequency and stretching requirements and orientation signs showing altitude profiles and difficulty levels were also included.

 

An additional service is the information brochure with tips and detailed descriptions. And because there is more to running than meets the eye, our fitness trainer Wolfgang organises running tours for beginners and advanced walkers on a weekly basis. Johanna will introduce you the "secrets" of running and give you useful tips for your running career!

By the way: the tours are free of charge for all guests staying at Weissensee valley.
