Lake Wörthersee.

Interwoven with legends and stories, it is well-known from film and TV and loved by locals, guests from around the world and jet set celebrities alike. In Klagenfurt, you will find its wonderful eastern bay, which stretches to Maria Wörth. The public lidos in Klagenfurt, Maria Loretto and Maiernigg invite you to bathe in one of the warmest alpine lakes in Europe, with green sunbathing lawns and shady trees. Boat hire and fun sports, such as banana rides or Water Walking, will turn a day at the lake into a small adventure. In the spacious parklands which make up Europapark, with its skater park and adventure playground, you can relax, do sports or simply enjoy a delicious ice cream on a leisurely walk. There is also a campsite – further information can be found HERE.

Here in Klagenfurt, pleasant walks and bicycle tours often begin along the Lendkanal or on the shore of Lake Wörthersee. The Loretto peninsular is an idyllic location that juts out into the water, with a bar and restaurant there offering pleasant refreshment opportunities. The Kreuzbergl also reveals itself as a peaceful oasis: Just a few minutes’ walk from the town center itself, visitors are able to stroll through the forest and past small ponds.


Visitors to Klagenfurt can also look forward to discovering some marvelous wineries. STADTWINZER is a cooperative of winegrowers that also offers guided tours of the “Ried-Seewiese” vineyards with views out across Lake Wörthersee. 

Wines have been grown on the Seewiese in Klagenfurt for more than 40 years. Since the beginning of 2003, the Vinum Carinthiae Winegrowing Association has leased out the Seewiese, with the subleasing members of the association growing wines on the Seewiese as part of a cooperative. On an area of more than 0.5 hectares, local vintners cultivate whites that include Sauvignon Blanc, Weissburgunder, Chardonnay and Riesling grapes, and reds such as Zweigelt, St. Laurent, Blauburger and Merlot. 

The vineyard lies along the lake path around the Wörthersee and can be reached in about a 10-minute walk from the Plattenwirt at the Europapark. Our local vintners do offer guided tours of the vineyard by appointment, followed by an opportunity to taste their wines:
