Velden is the perhaps most famous holiday destination in Carinthia. Every year many tourists come here to experience the unique atmosphere the city surrounds itself with. And to enjoy all the highlights the city has to offer, from the casino to the boulevards around the lake. As a new visitor you might even recognize some buildings like the impressive Schloss Hotel, the hotspot for the rich and famous, as it was scenery for multiple movies and shows. At the end of a lovely day you can enjoy a drink with lake view or buy souvenirs or clothes in the little shops along the boulevard. In the evening you can have dinner in one of the many restaurants or try your luck in the casino.
The Wörthersee, that became a hotspot because of its international flair, distinguishes itself through high sun hours, mediterranean atmosphere and water temperatures up to 27 degrees. Being one of the warmest lakes in the Alps the Wörthersee offers an immense amount of sporting and free time activities like swimming, waterskiing, surfing, golfing, hiking and cycling. Everything is possible. During the entire summer many events are organized as well, like for example the GTI Treffen, Ironman and the White Night Party.
