This emerald green, long and narrow lake between Gerlitzen mountain and the Oassiach Tauern range is Carinthia’s third largest. The venue of the Carinthian Culture Summer offers fun activities for young and old. How about some climbing action on the 1st Swimming Iceberg or water sliding fun with Carinthia’s longest waterslide? A popular outing destination south west of the lake is Burgruine Landskron. The castle, partially in ruins, is famous for its bird of prey show and the monkey mountain.
