Active summer

Spend a fantastic summer in the southernmost federal state in Austria. The almost Mediterranean climate in the southern part of the Alps invites you to explore the beautiful mountains while hiking and mountain biking, cycling along the crystal clear lakes with a racing bicycle or e-bike and then to cool off in one of the many bathing lakes with water clean enough to drink.

For those who prefer a more active holiday, Carinthia has numerous outdoor sports on offer such as canyoning, rafting, canoeing and kayaking. Sports schools and outdoor centres, i.e. in Feld am See, Wörthersee or Ossiachersee have an action-packed programme for young and old.
The aim of the ‘Magic Moments Experiences’ is to understand nature with all the senses by discovering protected natural paradises with experienced guides and/or indulging in the Carinthian Alpe-Adria cuisine.


There is also a wide range of summer events in Carinthia to attract visitors interested in music, the arts and sport. Event highlights include the ‘Wenn die Musi spielt’ summer open air, the ‘Carinthia Cycling Marathon’ in Bad Kleinkirchheim, ‘Ironman Austria’ in Klagenfurt or even the ‘Carinthian Music Academy’ in Ossiach with different concert series and workshops.
Culture lovers can find witnesses from past centuries in many castles and palaces and churches in Carinthia, which in turn delight guests with a colourful pot-pourri of theatre performances, festivals and exhibitions.
