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.


Located just a few minutes’ walk from the town center is a popular local recreation area known as the Kreuzbergl. Many take advantage of Klagenfurt’s own local mountain in order to go walking or running, or to pay a visit to the botanical garden, the observatory or Kreuzbergl church. Several small ponds and a broad woodland area offer visitors a true natural idyll. And whenever you are ready for a bite to eat or a refreshing drink, a number of restaurants await you on and around the Kreuzbergl.
