Wörthersee shimmers in every shade of turquoise imaginable and, with this extraordinary colour alone (which, by the way, is so intense thanks to algae known as diatoms), it radiates a warm and southern flair. This unique region is located between the Alps and the Adriatic Sea, near the borders with Slovenia and Italy and between the cities of Klagenfurt and Villach.
This lake, which can reach temperatures of 28 degrees, is a playground for everyone who has an inclination for water and likes to move around in it. Along with all kinds of water sports, there is also an increasing number of offers that transform Wörther- see into a picturesque backdrop that allows the ac- tivities in wonderful and gentle nature to become exciting journeys of discovery. New vistas, “secret” places and special areas astonish those who actively open themselves up to the nature surrounding the lake. This is especially true in the spring and autumn.
In the spring, a person experiences a veritable explosion of nature, and in autumn, a superlative interplay of colours. When the yellow and red tones of the vegetation mix with the turquoise of the lake, a magic atmosphere is created and, for many, this time is the most beautiful period of the year. The offer of a total of 320 km of marked running and walking paths on all types of surfaces, the loop hiking trail with breath-taking views of the lake, the boats that serves as transportation to the starting points, bike tours of all degrees of difficulty and much, much more makes Wörthersee a place where a person can pursue his individual active lifestyle and dedicate himself wholly to enjoyment in the evening.
