Klagenfurt am Wörthersee has a very special charm at any time of the year, but it is the summer that makes this city a true experience. The direct location at Lake Wörthersee and the Mediterranean climate provide southern flair. In the eastern bay of the lake, sun-seekers can enjoy themselves at the largest lakeside lido in Europe.

“Lonely Planet”, the worldwide largest publisher for independent travel, chose Carinthia as one of the best 10 region of the world in 2013. Carinthia has been ranked as the 7th in the ten best regions in the world – ahead of Palawan Island in the Philippines, the Seto Inland Sea in Japan and Campania in Italy. In total it was ranked as the 2nd best region in Europe – alongside with Corsica, France which was ranked as the first best region worldwide.

The editors recommended Carinthia as an ideal destination for activities and families and for its great value in general. They were particulary impressed by the less crowded ski areas, the friendly après-ski and the beer which is reasonably priced, especially when compared to the Swiss Alps. They also praised the Mediterranean “laissez faire” attitude and the proximity to Italy and Slovenia.

To quote the editors: “The lakes are as warm as baths and the sun shines longer than anywhere else in Austria”.
