Your children will love summer holidays at Lake Millstatt in Carinthia! Swimming in the warm lake every day and playing on the sunbathing lawn at the hotel is what relaxation is all about. The surrounding area has all the adventure you could want: hikes to mountain huts that lead past cows in alpine pastures, castle visits, digging for garnets, leisurely bike rides, fishing and lots of new flora and fauna to discover – the abundance of exciting destinations and activities ensures boredom is a foreign concept during a holiday in Carinthia.

Getting active in the mountains and around the lake

The wonderful natural surroundings around Lake Millstatt invite for an extensive range of sports and activities. Discover the unique flora and fauna in the Nockberge Biosphere Reserve, hike in the Millstätter Alpe mountains or take a bike ride, for example on the route around the lake (30 km forest road), which can also be combined with a boat trip. Another highlight is the show mine where you can have a go at mining garnets.

Getting active on the water

The rental boats, beaches and water ski schools on Lake Millstatt guarantee lots of fun on the lake and are great for cooling off on hot days. You and your children can even set sail on the lake in a pirate ship. If you want to see how fishing is done with a net, you can accompany the Aniwanter family as they fish on the lake. Expeditions to the untouched southern shore of the lake also start from Millstatt and offer children the chance to become little nature explorers. However, don't forget to allow time for relaxing on the private beach at HOTEL AM SEE DIE FORELLE, which is only open to hotel guests. It is another lovely way to spend time with children during a family holiday at the lake.
