Holidays in the mountains, and yet by the lake!

Thanks to its location in the foothills of the Ossiacher Tauern range, at the heart of the Carinthian lake district, the picturesque holiday resort of Wernberg offers unlimited opportunities for winter walks and winter sports. From early December the lovely lakes (Aichwaldsee, Silbersee, Vassacher See) are usually covered with a thick layer of ice, thus making a paradise for ice skating enthusiasts.

Marvel at the picture-postcard scenery wherever you go: thick forests, beautiful ponds and lakes, and a lovely Renaissance castle towering above it all.
The historic town center hosts a famous monastery, which is open to visitors from all over the world.
