Lake Weissensee

I’m ankle-deep in the lake. A few moments later knee-deep in the landscape. I see the sky from above. From here myself.

n the East Gailtaler Alps – in the South West of Carinthia – lies the clearest bathing lake of the alps. 930 meters above sea level and 11,6 kilometers long Lake Weissensee invites to swim, dive and relax in up to 24 degrees celsius warm drinkable water.


Surrounded by countless hiking- and mountainbike trails of every level of difficulty Lake Weissensee is an ideal location for holidays inbetween mountain and lake. For people looking for rest and relaxation as well as for recreational- and professional athletes.


Due to the environmentally compatible development of the region, Lake Weissensee has been honored as (engl. approx.) „European honoree for tourism and environment“. The whole region owns the predicate (engl. approx.) „health resort with a healthy climate“.


low-impact tourism in a mostly untouched area is our principle.
