Winter by the lake Wörthersee


When the weather is right - snow in December and dry, low-wind cold spells in January - Lake Wörth itself makes a great ice rink. And even if the "big boy" doesn't freeze, the smaller lakes and ponds in the surrounding area almost always freeze over, often with a mirror-like surface. These natural ice surfaces are looked after by the highly active Eislauverein Wörthersee, where you can also access up-to-date information on the ice situation.


From Velden on the shores of Lake Wörth, the following ski resorts are just a short car ride away: approx. 20 minutes to the Gerlitzen family ski resort with the Kanzelbahn cable car line, situated directly on the shores of Lake Ossiach; approx. 25 minutes to the Dreiländereck ski resort at the border triangle of Austria, Italy and Slovenia. A 50-minute car ride will take you to the Nockberge mountain range with the spa town of Bad Kleinkirchheim, a Skiing World Cup location. Kranjska Gora in Slovenia - another World Cup destination - is about 40 minutes away, and Tarvisio in Italy with its breath-taking slopes such as the "Super Canin" at the Sella Nevea is just 30 minutes away.

Winter walks and winter hikes

The most beautiful scenic winter hiking routes at Lake Wörth are actually to be found directly on the lake - if its frozen, that is, and if the ice has been deemed safe. As this is not the case every winter, there are lots of alternatives around the lake - signposted, cleared winter hiking tracks for everyone to enjoy.

In and around Velden, there are a great number of easily accessible and attractive tobogganing destinations, such as the tobogganging track in St. Leonhard, the tracks at the Baumgartnerhöhe, at the Landskron castle ruin, on Gerlitzen mountain or at the Dreiländereck. And of course, you don't need skis for elegantly pulling up at a friendly-looking mountain chalet for refreshments. The toboggan works just as well.

Cross-country skiing

Around the shores of Lake Wörth, there are several cross-country tracks that are excellently groomed all through winter. Particularly popular is the 6 km Velden-Köstenberg track at an altitude of 800m, where snow is pretty muc hguaranteed. Cross-country enthusiasts who want more than what Velden has to offer will find themselves spoilt for choice in the surrounding ski resorts.

Snow-shoe hiking

Exploring the snow-covered forests without sinking? Yes, you can- with snow shoes. Guided snow-shoe hikes in the forests around Lake Wörth, covered in a deep blanket of snow, are becoming increasingly popular. This is an environmentally compatible from of exercise close to nature that makes the most of the clear winter air and takes you to enchanted spots in the magical winter wonderland that cannot be accessed any other way. It is suitable for all age groups and is simply a lot of fun!

Ski tours

Ski resorts such as Gerlitzen, Dreiländereck, Kranjska Gora and Tarvisio are within easy reach of Lake Wörth and offer plenty of outstanding skiing fun not just in terms of pistes, but also for ski tours. The nearby Karawanken mountain range is also a true Dorado for ski touring enthusiasts.
