Head into the fresh air!
Experience a world of adventure. In the Dobratsch Nature Park, numerous hiking trails through nature and landscape conservation areas, rare animal and plant species, and many exciting experiences await you. The nature park gets its name from the Dobratsch, Villach’s local mountain, which is surrounded by Carinthia’s idyllic lake landscape. The four pillars of the nature park are education, recreation, regional development, and protection, and families in particular will find plenty of fun and adventure here. Walk across the unspoilt landscape, breathe in the fresh mountain air, and feel your body relax.
Water sports in and around Villach
Since Villach is surrounded by idyllic lakes, it certainly won’t be difficult for you to choose the perfect place for your next water adventure: Lake Ossiach is not far from the city and offers numerous possibilities for swimming, windsurfing, stand-up paddling, cycling, and hiking. If you don’t want to drive far, you can improve your swimming skills in the 25-metre-long sports pool at the KärntenTherme thermal spa.
Stay fit with our sports camps
Since fitness also contributes to a healthy and balanced body image, we have devised several programmes for our sports camps. These include swim camps, ski touring camps, hiking days, road bike tours, and much more. If you prefer to spend your free time on golf courses or tennis courts, you should pay a visit to the Sportpark Warmbad-Villach, which awaits you with ten tennis courts, three sports halls, and so much more.
Fun in the snow
Not only do active holidaymakers have their fill of fun at the Thermenhotel Karawankenhof in summer, but they also have a blast in winter. Skiing, ski touring, cross-country skiing, winter hiking, tobogganing, and ice skating will set winter lovers’ pulses racing. And after an eventful day in the wintry mountains, there is nothing better than relaxing in the KärntenTherme thermal spa, don’t you think?
