The purest swimming lake of the Alps is located at the sunny high-valley Weissensee, 930 m above sea level in Southwest Carinthia.
It is a paradise for stress-free hikes and runs, perfect for Nordic Walking or mountain biking. Especially in spring and autumn lake Weissensee is a great spot for fishing. In summer the crystal-clear turquoise water reaches up to 24 degrees and is perfect for bathing, wind-surfing, diving and canoeing.
House Heimat has its own beach.
Two thirds of the south shore of lake Weissensee is unspoilt. There is no through traffic or motorboats. Mass tourism? Not in Weissensee. The region has also been awarded by the EU for tourism and environment and owns the title: “Heilklimatischer Luftkurort” (its climate is beneficial to health)
The Fitness Nature Park Weissensee sums up all the extensive offers of the region. That means that all routes have been measured, variegated tagged and equipped with new signs. A fitness coach looks after the guest and gives tips to beginners and advanced people.
This is something totally different: Use the Weissensee ski lift to go up the mountain and start your hike or bike trip from there, go for a run or Nordic Walking and enjoy the impressive scenery up in the mountains.
You might take the path, which goes along the Naggler Alm (mountain pasture) to Unternaggl. When you arrive at the so called “Paterzipf” a boat of the Weissenseeschifffahrt will pick you up and bring you back to your starting point at the Weissensee bridge.
