Lovely and refreshing lake in great nature

Lovely lake, invites to do hiking or cycling in the area around the lake, but also swimming, paragliding or even diving are possible. Just great!

The weather was nice when we went on a boating trip at Millstatter See, for one hour (complete tour is 2 hour) and we enjoyed it. We boarded at Millstatt boat station. We left our car close to the boat station at the parking which was free of charge. The ship arrived according to timetable. The staff of the boat... More

Stunning scenery at Millstätter Alpe. Take the round trip from Schweiger Hütte to Millstätter Hütte and Alexander Hütte and enjoy the fresh air and stunning views of the mountains and the Millstätter See. The drive up to Schweiger Hütte cost 4,50 Euro, cash only, but otherwise its free. Just take into consideration that the food served at all the stations... More

The weather was cold - about 18°C - when we went on a boating trip at Millstatter See, but in spite of the bad weather we enjoyed it. We boarded at Millstatt boat station. Before the boarding we spent some time to find a parking place, where we could leave our car more than 3 hours - the paying places... More

We took a 2 hour see cruise and enjoyed it. Very calm and relaxing. We believe this is the best way to get to know this beautil lake. You can order food and drinks on the boat and we recommend Apple cake with vanilla ice-cream. We suugest the visit to the monastery and the church in Millstadt.

Millstatt is a really nice town and of course the lake makes it even more special. With a proper cafe and a sauna with an infinity pool, this place will make you smile! The lake is clear and warm in the summer, and there's a great rock climb in the lake which you climb and jump off. Used to be... More

The lake is warm enough to take a long swim. Carinthia is famous for it's nice weather which we had for a full week now in June. Definitely worth a visit! Mountain trips may not be the most extreme but they are surely challenging enough for most. Scenery is faboulous!

I realize there are bigger lakes, and perhaps more scenic places. But if you are planning to be in the area, this makes a great pause from the hikes or other active events. Have a seat on the boat and enjoy a lovely ride. Order a drink (lots of options) and a hot pretzel (they ARE hot and fresh). This... More
