    5 Lakes on 2 Tires

    All bike paths in Carinthia lead to the water, sunshine and to the most hospitable hosts a cyclist could possibly imagine. Above-average hours of sunlight, countless water accesses and the incomparably sunny temperament of the Carinthians themselves, make southern Austria a land of first-rate cycling adventures both in spring, summer and autumn. Tours to everyone’s taste, for families and for ambitious bikers – leisurely or exhilarating, quietly gliding along or powerfully leaning into the pedals – this is what cycling on the Wörthersee is all about!

Since spring 2013, the Carinthian ski school association, the summer sport schools, the Carinthian mountain pasturing association with the special group “mountain tavern” and the Carinthian agricultural marketing with the special group "tavern" have also become partners of this initiative.

    With the input of all partners, measureable criteria were defined to assess touch points of the tourism brand Carinthia. When fulfilling these criteria, businesses are awarded the Carinthian Seal of Quality.

    Enterprises that fulfill the "Tourism Quality Initiative Carinthia" specifications with great dedication and motivation receive the Carinthian Seal of Quality. The establishment and its employees are committed to the tourism brand Carinthia, transmitting its "joy of living" holiday feeling to their guests. The hosts create a welcoming atmosphere with high standards of service. Once awarded the seal, it is monitored at regular intervals in order to uphold the quality promise.
