Carinthia Austria

Like Styria, the Province of Carinthia is also located in the southern part of Austria - to the west of Styria, bordering Italy. Carinthia's Woerthersee is Austria's best known summer resort. It is a country with beautiful lakes and mountains and because of its location, south of the main alpine region, spring comes earlier and autumn lasts much longer. Lake bathing is possible from mid May until mid October. Carinthia has excellent winter sport resorts also, such as Kanzelhoehe, famous for its perfect snow and many hours of sunshine. The highlight of Carinthia is Velden on Woerthersee, known all over Europe. It is a picturesque lake resort with first class hotels, an interesting programme of events, including champion water-skiing. There are flower festivals, corsos, international dancing competitions, boat races, etc. At Velden, Poertschach or Klagenfurt you can swim, sail, water ski, play tennis or golf to your heart's content. The many castles are another most interesting aspect of Carinthia. The ideal castle tour is from Klagenfurt via Hochosterwitz the old walled town of Friesach and the ancient town of Gurk
