Swimming & Watersports

Caribbean feeling at Lake Wörthersee

Swimming in Lake Wörthersee

The water glistens turquoise in the sunlight with a temperature of 28°C. What at first looks like a scene from the Caribbean is in fact in the South of Austria – meaning no jetlag. The water is great for drinking and will amaze with its turquoise hue – the result of the tiny particles of limestone in the water.

The Alpine Caribbean is particularly popular because of its warm sunny days and pleasantly cool nights. No wonder that the lifestyle here is more relaxed and ‘Southern’ than elsewhere.

Relax on our private beach

The Seehotel Europa hast its own private beach with a large sunbathing area. You decide whether to slowly enter the cool water from the pebble beach or to take a jump from the jetty. For kids and non-swimmers, there is even a separate area with shallower water.

There’s even a choice of lounging areas: jetty or beach. Sun or shade. In any case, your personal sun lounger with sun visor is reserved for you for your entire stay using your room number. Beach towels included.

If you get hungry or thirsty whilst sunbathing, come check out our Portofino lake-side restaurant for tasty seafood and juicy steaks. Champagne and fruity cocktails from the Portofino Bar ensure you cool off inside.
