Autumn holidays

Sun-drenched, colorful and with many advantages

In Carinthia, on the south side of the Alps, the Mediterranean influence in the autumn ensures exceptional warm and sun filled days. Here, we enjoy the summer temperatures longer, often until end October. The ideal weather, not only for hikes, mountain biking, riding or tennis lessons but also for sunbathing at the rock-pool or a splash into the lake..

The hit: The rock pool is heated until mid October; Free Kärtner Card with over 100 free travel destinations and transport possibilities from 1.09 until 26.10.
