Ice skating in a frozen kingdom
If you spend your winter holiday in the Nassfeld-Pressegger See region, you definitely shouldn’t miss out on one special experience: ice skating on one of Carinthia’s most amazing natural ice rinks. Doesn’t gliding across frozen lakes together with your family sound like a winter’s dream come true?
Try your hand at doing pirouettes, Bavarian curling or ice hockey – all of this and more is waiting for you at Lake Pressegger See or at Lake Weissensee, Europe’s largest prepared natural ice surface.
