Culture and excursions

Due to the central location of the hotel and the town, many sights and attractions are within easy reach. In summertime, over 100 Carinthian sights can be accessed for free or at a discount with the Carinthia card.

As Austria’s southernmost and sunniest state, it boasts an exceptionally diverse array of tourist attractions.

Besides the breathtaking Alpine views, its stunning landscape is also dotted with 1,270 lakes of various sizes.

Those who prefer active recreation will find many options to choose from in the area: mountain hiking and cycling, adventure parks, rafting and paragliding. Explore Nockberge National Park through its many hiking trails, or, if you’re not the hiking type, enjoy the park’s stunning views driving along its winding scenic routes.

Are you passionate about culture and history? Perhaps you are interested in castles and displays of medieval culture and warfare? Or you may enjoy a concert in the Millstatt Abbey. And have you ever hear of the Ossiach Abbey, over one thousand years old? Klagenfurt is resplendent with its many museums and historical sites. Locals are committed to preserving and maintaining traditions and customs. Every season brings with it special events, which the Carinthians usually celebrate in their traditional national dress, the Tracht.

Upon arrival, we give our guests a travel guide which we have compiled, and which they can use during their stay to facilitate activity planning. At the reception you can also ask for a navigation, that contains some hiking trail routes to help your excursion.
