Experiencing the element of water

Discover the lakes, rivers and streams in the Nassfeld-Pressegger See region!

Water flows, it’s alive and always in motion. The element evokes clarity and purity. The same also applies to the lakes, rivers and streams in the Nassfeld-Pressegger See region. However, … even though water is always in motion, it also exudes an air of calm – wonderfully soothing for body, mind and soul. On summer holiday in the World of Lakes, you’ll experience moments of joy filled with sports, nature and sunshine.

Whether you’re swimming in the 28-degrees-warm Lake Pressegger See, immersing yourself in the quiet waters of Lake Weissensee or having an action-packed adventure on the river Gail: The element of water will be omnipresent throughout your holidays in the region. And even up at thousands of metres above sea level, you’ll encounter water spectacles to behold. From Lake Zollnersee and Lago di Pramollo to beautiful Lake Wolayersee: Every holiday guest will find their favourite amidst the variety of stunning bodies of water. Because when the mountain tops reflect on the surface of the water, the sun shines from the sky, and you want nothing more than to enjoy this moment to the fullest: That’s when you’ll know, you’ve arrived in the fascinating World of Lakes!

The multi-faceted World of Lakes

The water hotspots in the Carnic, Gailtal and Julian Alps are as multi-faceted as nature itself. They form a superb summer cocktail of pleasure, adventure, sports and nature. And thanks to the various lakes, rivers, streams and springs, you’ll always find the right spot to do whatever you’re in the mood for.

You’re looking for breathtaking views, a stunning Alpine scenery and some peace and quiet? The countless mountain lakes in the entire Nassfeld-Pressegger See region and all the way to Italy and Slovenia let you decompress. Adrenaline junkies and thrill seekers might prefer to visit Soča Valley in Slovenia and the turbulent waters of the Gail. That’s where you can try a variety of different water sports along the river. The only prerequisites: a daredevil mentality, fun, and a hunger for adventure!

At Lake Pressegger See and Lake Weissensee on the other hand, the full package counts: Quality time as a family, fun and action with your friends or relaxation with your partner – it’s all possible. And while you’re there, you should also go on a walk through the tall belt of reeds on the Slow Trail of Lake Presseggersee or take a little boat trip on Lake Weissensee.

One thing’s for sure: There’s hardly another region where the element of water shows itself in quite as many different facets as in the World of Mountains & Lakes.
