As you amble through the city centre steeped in history, you are struck above all by features such as the Lindwurm, the Wörthersee-Mandl, die Ernst Fuchs chapel, the Landhaus with the armorial hall or the plague column. But the arcaded courtyards, cosy cafes and restaurants, museums and shopping options also make the city a very special place.
Lake Wörthersee makes an important contribution to the city’s attractiveness. The warm swimming lake not only has Europe’s largest lido on an inland lake, but also a well-developed network of cycle paths, and options for jogging, walking and hiking. You can also get to know the lake from a very special angle on a ferry ride. Lake Wörthersee is also the setting for major sports events such as Ironman, the “Kärnten läuft” running event or Beach Volleyball World and European Championships. There is also the World Bodypainting Festival, Fête Blanche and other major events.
