One of Europe's most beautiful lakes

Wörthersee, the star of Carinthia's lakes

The Wörthersee is without a doubt one of Europe's most beautiful lakes. Nestled in the heart of Carinthia's mountains and hills, it originated in a glacial valley at an elevation of 438 m. With a surface area of 19.4 km² and a water volume of 816 million m2, it is Carinthia's largest lake.

The lake's temperature of up to 25o Celsius in summer makes it perfect for any type of water sport. Its name is derived from the Old High German "Werdersee", which means 'island lake' and which refers to the three islands in the Wörthersee.

The beautiful Wörthersee is turquoise blue, especially in summer. This wonderful color is produced by fine limestone particles, which enter the lake through limestone-rich alpine tributaries. Nestled in the middle of green hills, it quickly became the top summer getaway destination for various VIPs, composers, artists, and writers. Films and TV have also contributed to the reputation of the Wörthersee: no other Austrian lake has been such a frequent backdrop for successful television series. 

Wörthersee ferry service

You should definitely experience a boat ride on the Wörthersee. The ships of the Wörthersee fleet dock at ten landings in six towns. A cruise provides a view of the beautiful houses that feature typical Wörthersee architecture.

Water sports

First and foremost, the Wörthersee is perfect for swimming and various water sports such as water skiing, wake boarding, wake surfing, as well as stand-up paddling or paddle boat and motorboat rides. If you would like to see everything from up above, you can experience a whole new perspective with parachuting over the Wörthersee.

The family is here for their guests with their whole heart.
