Train inbetween the mountains and Lake Wörthersee
Train between mountains and lake – just one of our mottos here in the Wörthersee region. Many wonderful hikes start and finished by Carinthia’s largest swimming pool. As well as forest and meadow trails, there are also tougher routes.
Wörthersee lake hike
The terrain is hilly with sharp inclines and declines (from 440 to 850 m above sea level, approx. 2,200 metres ascent/descent). The route largely winds its way through forests. It offers wonderful views time and again of both Wörthersee and the Karawank Mountains. The Wörthersee lake trail is around 55 km long.
Tip: Visit the viewing tower on the pyramid balloon. Get an amazing view of the entire region.
Running & Nordic Walking
The region is also a forerunner in running and Nordic walking.
The Running & Walking Arena Wörthersee offers 36 routes in Velden, Maria Wörth and Reifnitz, Pörtschach, Schiefling, and Keutschach – with a total of 217 kilometres of track and 3,518 m altitude.
