Outdoor activities in Carinthia

Thanks to its location in äußerster Süden Österreichs, Kärnten is considered particularly sunny. In summer, some of the warmest bathing lakes in the Alps await water sports enthusiasts, families and those seeking relaxation. Hikers and mountain bikers, on the other hand, are usually drawn to the mountains. In the Hohe Tauern National Park, for example, there is not only the Großglockner, Austria's highest mountain, to marvel at, but also a great variety of flora and fauna below the rugged mountain peaks.


The Hohe Tauern National Park is one of the most beautiful in Austria.


In the winter months, renowned ski resorts such as Nassfeld, Bad Kleinkirchheim or Großglockner/Heiligenblut attract numerous skiers and snowboarders to Carinthia. Varied, sunny slopes up to more than 3000 metres above sea level provide plenty of downhill fun. Afterwards, the many thermal spas in Carinthia provide relaxation and wellness.

Culture lovers can enjoy international flair at music events on Lake Wörthersee all summer long or experience the traditions of Carinthia at regional festivals. The many castles, castles and churches also bear witness to the rich cultural heritage of Carinthia.
