Lake Wörthersee

Discover and immerse yourself in the Wörthersee-Rosental way of life!

With its shimmering turquoise green water that gets up to 27 degrees, lake Wörthersee, embedded south of the Alps in Carinthia close to the border with Italy and Slovenia, is a fashionable backdrop for exquisite and trendy events in the warm summer months.

And lake Wörthersee has lost none of its exclusive flair to this day. Whether it’s from a motorboat or strolling along the Velden promenade: with Casino Velden or the imposing façade of the castle hotel, it can hold its own in any comparison with places on the French Riviera.

A completely different spot of vital energy is recommended to rediscover your inner balance and to unwind: Werzer´s bathhouse right on the water. It was built in 1895 and is the only preserved bathhouse on the lake. The culinary world around the lake also promises outstanding indulgence of the highest level at any time of the year. Sun-kissed lake terraces. Stylish bars. Award-winning restaurants. Outstanding top chefs. Picturesque villas. These are just a few of the ingredients of the incomparable culinary delicacies on the menus on lake Wörthersee – the lifestyle stage in southern Austria. A total of 20 Gault Millau toques make the Wörthersee region a hot spot for gourmets.

Nowhere else are there so many trendy dining locations right on the water.


Top excursion destinations such as the Pyramidenkogel mountain, Minimundus or Reptilienzoo Happ are easy to reach by the boats run by Wörthersee Schifffahrt. The climb up to the Pyramidenkogel, the highest spot around the lake with its unmissable wooden viewing tower, is sure to be remembered as an absolute highlight.

Rosental valley is the ideal destination for those who prefer a more leisurely trip. It ranges from Rosegg in the west to St. Margareten in the east and encompasses that world-famous part of southern Carinthia along the Drava River. It is not just due to the craftsmanship of gunsmithing and engraving for which the area is so renowned, but also due to the diligent and gentle Carniolan honey bee, which gave this region its name.

Located on the sunny side of the Alps, the Rosental is paradise for mountain climbers, hikers and cyclists, especially due to its unique topography. The Rosental also offers special experiences that give this region a very special flair: The multitude of beautiful museums, the unique landscape of Land Art sculptures and above all the friendliness and openness of the locals – they all set a valuable, visionary example of the times, focused on history, nature, culture and the economy.
