Holiday at the Lake Millstatt

Warm, crystal clear lakes, rolling mountains and a climate that is influenced by the Mediterranean: this is what makes Carinthia such a popular summer holiday destination. Lake Millstatt is the second largest lake in Carinthia after Lake Wörthersee and contains the highest volume of water. The lake has the perfect activity for almost every water lover, from swimming, diving and fishing to watersports such as water skiing, wakeboarding and canoeing. The water is also very clean, boasting drinking water quality.

One of the warmest swimming lake in Carinthia

In Carinthia, you can enjoy long summers at the lake: warm air from the Mediterranean can flow freely into southern Austria thanks to the protection provided by mountains in the north. This results in a long swimming season, which often starts as early as May at Lake Millstatt and continues into September. In the height of summer, the lake can reach up to 27 degrees and the beaches and bays become the stomping ground for countless swimmers and holidaymakers. At Hotel am See****Die Forelle, however, you have access to a private hotel swimming beach: our hotel in Millstatt extends right to the shore of the lake and is the perfect place for swimming and relaxing thanks to the large and shady sunbathing lawn, which is available exclusively to hotel guests.
