Holidays at the lake
Bathing in Bad Kleinkirchheim
Numerous lakes around Bad Kleinkirchheim
Our absolute favourites regarding the lakes in Bad Kleinkirchheim are presented here. In first place for us is the Millstätter See. After a drive of about 22 minutes you will reach the second largest lake in Carinthia and you will be greeted by deep blue water surrounded by gentle hills and mountains. The Millstätter See provides for huge bathing fun on numerous accessible shores, has well-developed cycle and walking paths around the lake and becomes a place of romance in the evening. At the Millstätter See you can also go for wonderful walks. The numerous activities and the impressive nature of the lake is the perfect mixture for your summer holiday.
Continue with the largest lake in Carinthia: the Wörthersee. It covers 19.39 km² and is also one of the warmest Alpine lakes in the area. Surrounded by the gentle mountains of the Alps, especially the scenery of the lake enchants its visitors year after year. For this reason, you can expect a lot of visitors at this lake. However, it is definitely worth a visit because you can enjoy action-packed water sports activities, such as water skiing or wakeboarding over the sparkling water surface. You can explore the Wörthersee with a sailing or motorboat or you can explore the water with the quiet alternative, the SUP Board. By the way, most of the lakes in Bad Kleinkirchheim have these offers. All around, nature invites you to take a bicycle ride or a walk. By car you need about 50 minutes from our hotel to the Wörthersee.
Lake Ossiacher See
Alternatively, you can also visit the Ossiacher See, which is about 39 minutes' drive closer to Bad Kleinkirchheim. Both young and old will have a lot of fun here, because the Ossiacher See is a real nature playground. You can release a lot of adrenalin during the offered paragliding flight directly over the beautiful Ossiacher See.
Lake Feld am See
If you like it quieter and smaller, Feld am See is certainly the right destination. After only 15 minutes you will reach the small village with its beautiful bathing lake. Every year in July a great spectacle takes place here: Carinthia's biggest fish festival is celebrated! You can try tasty, unique fish dishes and enjoy the exuberant atmosphere of the festival.

With sanitary facilities, restaurants in the vicinity and parking spaces, the smaller lake is in no way inferior to the other lakes in Bad Kleinkirchheim.
