The Wörthersee region is a popular vacation destination - even during the cold season. Whether snuggled up and strolling along the promenade snacking on roasted chestnuts or during the time of the Christmas markets, that spread a wonderfully traditional atmosphere. When a thin layer of ice begins to form on the lake and the first snowflakes fall down to the valley, winter has reached its most beautiful point. Due to its location between various mountains, the Wörthersee region is a perfect starting point for winter sports enthusiasts. Winter lovers can visit a different ski area every day, ski down the slopes, go tobogganing, snow hiking or cross-country skiing. But the winter season naturally also invites you to relax in the spa area, cool off in the cold air after a visit to the sauna and relax in the warm water.
In winter, the beautiful Wörthersee presents itself from its quiet, contemplative side. Its picturesque view, surrounded by snow-covered treetops and white mountain peaks, invites you to take long walks along the shore. At dusk, when clouds of mist settle over the lake, a mystical atmosphere can often be experienced. In the evening, the glittering lights of the Christmas illuminations dance on the surface of the water, while the scent of mulled wine wafts from the small huts of the Advent markets. Sporty guests can look forward to numerous ski resorts nearby. Ice skating, tobogganing, winter hiking or wellness is also possible in many places.
The unique location between lake and mountains, the contrast of modern architecture and historical grandeur, the range of diverse interests - from tranquility and targeted reduction in the spa to lively hustle and bustle and cultural happenings - in this exclusive hideaway you will consciously enjoy life with all your senses.
