Taking in the fresh air of Carinthia’s breathtaking countryside in the Villach region, will awaken even the weariest of spirits to a new life energy.
For a hike to one of the mountains that surround Villach, it is best to start early in the morning after a hearty breakfast at Hotel City. The Dobratsch, the Gerlitzen Alpe and the Mittagskogel are popular destinations among our guests. For the best adrenaline rush, you can hang with ‘rope and hook’ on the rock face in the climbing garden Kanzianiberg. Less experienced climbers may first wish to climb the walls in the newly built climbing hall Villach, Kletterhalle Villach.
A summer holiday that could not be more varied.
The best way to explore our unique landscape is by bike. A leisurely tour starts right outside the hotel door, on the bike path along the Drau River. Mountain bikers can improve their cycling skills in the Areaone Mountain Bike Skill Center on the Kumitzberg or explore one of the numerous individual routes. In addition, a diverse road bike network, Rennrad-Streckennetz, with challenging mountain tours and easy lake circuits, will make the hearts of cyclists soar.
When all the roads in the city are done and the summer temperatures have calmed your thirst for action, this is the right time to reward yourself with a dip in one of the refreshing bathing lakes. In addition to the nearby and well-known lakes such as Lake Ossiach or Lake Faak, there are still a few secret bathing waters to discover, away from the hustle and bustle.
Rainy weather doesn’t really exist during the Carinthian summer!
However, if the summer sun does slip behind the clouds, this is the perfect opportunity to take a bath in the KärntenTherme.
