The area

Our hotel is located just outside the center of Velden, in the province of Carinthia, a region also known as the sunny south of Austria. While on holday, you will feel right at home near the versatile Wörthersee. The lake, stretching 17 kilometers, lies between the mountains of Austria, Italy and Slovenia. The Wörthersee is the biggest lake suitable for swimming in Carinthia and is situated at an altitude of 439 meters. The turquoise blue water is of drinking water quality and is about 25 degrees in the summer. As one of the warmest lakes in the Alps, the surrounding area offers many options for practicing sports and leisure such as swimming, cycling, stand-up paddling and hiking.

Three-country meeting point: Italy, Slovenia and Austria

The border triangle in Arnoldstein is the meeting point between Austria, Italy and Slovenia. The combination of hiking trails and a cable car, is what makes it one of the most popular spots in Carinthia. From the highest point, at almost 1600 meters, you’ll have a spectacular view of the Karawanken, the Julian Alps, the Gailtal and the city of Klagenfurt.

It’ll only take you half an hour to get from the hotel to the cable car, which in turn takes you to the three-country meeting point.
