    The Wörthersee

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The lake is elongated, about 20 km long and 1–2 km wide.It stretches from the Carinthian capital Klagenfurt in the east to Velden in the west. It is flanked to the north and south by steep alpine foothills covered with dense forests, beyond which snow-capped alpine peaks are visible. The lake's water is a distinctive blue-green colour and transparent.
    The Mediterranean climate and clean, warm water make the lake a popular tourist destination in summer. Although the region around the lake has been termed Austria's Monte Carlo, in recent decades tourism around Lake Wörthersee has suffered from tough competition from package holidays to cheaper overseas destinations. As a response a number of local businesses have tried to focus on niches such as high quality tourism, family tourism or golf and horse-riding vacations

    W��rthersee in Velden

    Velden is just on the edge of the Wörthersee, built around the Wörthersee's westernmost tip. The main strip is based around the lake and there are lots of beaches and sunbathing places, many privately owned. It is also possible to go down to the lake and go for a dip - most therapeutic after a long day in the sun playing cricket just outside Velden - the water is warm enough to swim in throughout the summer. There is a wide range of activities - many watersport-based and for sailors it can be great fun boating around on the Wörthersee. If you don't have your own boat, the boat trip to MAriawörth is well worth it!
