Whatever you have always wanted to try – do it here. Whether you’re swimming in the lake, flying models or kites, fishing, rafting, trekking or horseback riding – it’s guaranteed to be worth it.
Take to the Air
Whether it’s a sailing or motorized flight, you can take off over Carynthia and East Tirol from the nearby Dölsach Airfield – highlights like Großglockner trip and the Carinthian Lake circuit included. Paragliding and hang-gliding fans will find that a favorite European thermal region is right on the front door – the Emberger Alm.
Angling or Fishing

Though the main time of year to go fishing for Danube salmon is in the winter, the angling season is in the spring or fall. Let yourself be advised and join in.
