I grew up with the Wörthersee as my "home". In summer there wasn't a day that I didn't go there and still I love swimming in it. It's got unique, soft, turquise water and I recommend it to all people visiting Carinthia in the summer.

A busy lake full of boats, swimmers and locals enjoying the refreshing water. You can rent boats at the shore in the water park.
