“What are we doing today?”
If you ask yourself this question on holiday at the thermal spa hotel, don’t worry, we have more than just a few suggestions for you.
If you like to spend time in the fresh air and outdoors, we recommend going on a hike or bike tour in the Dobratsch Nature Park. If you want to go higher, you should set your sights on the summit of the Dobratsch, Villach’s local mountain. Want to go higher than that? Then we recommend a paragliding flight over the idyllic Carinthian lake landscape! Passionate golfers, tennis players, and climbers will also find numerous leisure activities in Villach – the winner can look forward to a refreshing aperitif afterwards!
Winter tip: A skiing excursion or ice skating is a great way to spend the day during the cold season. You can also enjoy a fantastic panorama and idyllic natural landscapes on the cross-country trails and winter hiking paths around Villach.
Head into the cool water!
In summer, an excursion to one of the numerous lakes around the Thermenhotel Karawankenhof is a must. You can reach the 10.5km² Lake Ossiach in 20 minutes by car and Lake Faak in 15 minutes. Both bathing lakes radiate the feeling of the Mediterranean and invite you to swim, pedal boat, and stand-up paddle.
If you are looking for more leisure tips for your holiday, we have some irresistible recommendations:
- At the eagle arena at Landskron Castle, you can learn all about birds of prey and owls in Europe and take part in flight demonstrations.
