When your business in town is done, the yearning for sparkling white snow and fresh air in Kärnten’s wintry wonderland beckons and nothing should stand in the way of your winter holidays. Within reach of Villach lie all the possibilities to experience the winter up close.
Active people are drawn to skiing or snowboarding, on the family-friendly slopes, on the nearby Gerlitzen Alp. Friends of leisurely and extensive ski touring will most certainly find top value with satisfaction guaranteed. A free ski bus will take you from Hotel City directly to the valley station of the Kanzelbahn cable car.
The cross-country ski track in the Villach Alps arena passes directly by the ski jump of the Olympic champions. The route is not only suitable for professionals. Beginners and amateur athletes can also get to know the fascination of movement in the snow.
Winter fun at a slower pace can be equally as exciting when snowshoeing on the Dobratsch or on the Dreiländereck. Take a winter hike to the Hundsmarhof and combine action with a taste of regional culinary delicacies in a homelike atmosphere. Then revitalized, sledging down the mountain is the best of fun.
Feel like ice skating? Simply walk from the Hotel City just over the Draubrücke and across the main square. At the Villach Town Hall Square, you will find the exhilaration of skating and it’s for free! Even the skating boots can be rented on site. And if it’s cold enough and the Kärnten lakes are frozen, ice skating on natural ice is a unique sensation.
