Lake Wörth, 27° Celsius and drinking water
You must not miss the biggest and most well-known lake of the popular holiday destination of Carinthia! Fondly, it is also referred to as the “Austrian Riviera"! The lake is known for its drinking water and the mild bathing temperatures. On many a summer day, the lake will captivate you with its turquoise, crystal clear water likely to reach up to 27° Celsius. The lake is about 17 kilometres long, up to 1600 meters wide and 86 meters deep at its deepest spot.
Starting point for many activities
Especially from May to September, Lake Wörth is a very popular holiday and bathing resort, as well as an ideal starting point for numerous cultural and sports activities. Klagenfurt, the provincial capital of Carinthia, is just a few kilometres away, and a day trip to nearby Italy is also very appealing.
Even sports enthusiasts will find enough activities
You can have active holidays exploring our surroundings on your bicycle or your mountain bike. Taking one of the plentiful bicycle routes around the lake, you will both be active and able to enjoy the beautiful scenery of Lake Wörth.

If you prefer staying close to the water, you can savour the lakeside views by renting a boat or taking a tour on one of the lake’s ships while at the same time enjoying a delicious cup of cappuccino.
Eating, drinking, and entertainment
“Eating and drinking keep body and soul together”, as the saying goes. Gourmets of all tastes will find suitable places around the lake, no matter whether you are looking for rated cuisine, a typically Austrian farmhouse inn called “Buschenschenke”, a restaurant, or a sophisticated café! Party-people can choose between a variety of bars, discos, numerous events (such as Fête Blanche, beach volleyball, etc.) and many more.
