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!
The Wörthersee Card gets you into almost everywhere for free, includes free participation in (hiking) tours and, in its own unique way, makes the whole issue of incidental expenses a non-starter.
The lake Wörthersee fascinates families with children à la Card - The lake Wörthersee fascinates families with children à la Card - This lake rarely rests during the summer: The holiday region flanking the shores of the Wörthersee proudly presents the “Wörthersee (Family) Card”, an all-inclusive card which appeals to the needs and wishes of parents and partners, grandma and grandpa, kids and kin – and always at a family-friendly price. The Card offers von April til October free admission to beach resorts on four lakes and to some 100 excursion destinations, along with free participation in exciting hikes throughout Carinthia. The palette extends from the Alpine-Adriatic Adventure Tour, to a visit to Minimundus – a whole world in miniature on the shores of the Wörthersee – to a tour through the untamed Tscheppa Ravine.
Since summer 2012 the Seehotel Hubertushof is member of the „Roadbike-Holidays“ and offers you a relaxed holiday with your race.
Tourism Quality Initiative Carinthia
Based on an initiative by the Tourism Regions Carinthia, the Carinthian Tourist Board and the provincial tourism department, the local tourist regions, the hotel, gastronomy and camping sectors of the chamber of commerce, the Carinthian "Holidays on the Farm" group, the association of private guesthouses, the Kärnten Card group and the cable cars of Carinthia launched the "Tourism Quality Initiative Carinthia" in 2011. 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.
The superior leaders of the Premier League and Champions League winners 2012 will be stationed at the Lake Wörthersee in Carinthia, Austria from July 21 – 27, 2014.
