Wellness for body and mind

Healthy and fit in the Nassfeld-Pressegger See region

Taking a deep breath surrounded by a sea of reeds, relaxing in the “mountain position” during yoga, or immersing yourself in warm thermal water. Relaxing, slowing down and feeling at peace with yourself is the best way to take care of “your temple”, the body. The perfect blend of health, movement and wellness ensures a well-rounded life balance.

With vitality and inner strength, you can firmly stand with both feet on the ground and feel well-rooted in life. On holiday or during some time off, health and fitness are deciding factors for inner balance. Regeneration, activation and balance are three important impulses that ensure relaxing hours in the Nassfeld-Pressegger See region.

Besides the Slow Trail that leads you through the lake’s reed belt, several wellness temples offer plenty of space for relaxation in the World of Mountains & Lakes. And there’s certainly no room for disharmony and inner imbalance!

A walking meditation through reeds

Slow Trail Pressegger See

Take a step out into the sea of reeds, gather new strength, centre yourself, let go of all everyday worries, look within – and return revitalised from your excursion! The Slow Trail around Lake Presseggersee starts at Strandbad Hermagor and leads you through the 3-metres-tall belt of reeds along a six-kilometre trail. For about one and a half hours, visitors can take their time to live in the present and leave their everyday stress behind, as they’re walking at a leisurely pace.

Four stations along the Slow Trail act as mental support for this unique experience:

  • Entering the sea of reeds
  • Recharging your batteries at the scenic-view platform
  • Centring yourself at the “rest stop for your senses”
  • Letting go – as you let your gaze wander across the lake


Slow down and start to observe the natural spectacle that surrounds you!

Becoming one with nature

Wellness and relaxation

Yoga or Pilates – muscles need more than action and exertion. Stretching ensures that you can enjoy the extensive range of other sports offers to the fullest. Dynamic Vinyasa flows and stretching exercises help you unwind. And views of the spectacular mountain scenery in the World of Mountains & Lakes contribute their fair share as well. Down in the valley or high up in the Nassfeld region – you’ll return from your holiday healthy and fit!

What better place to relax your muscles than at the wellness oases in the Nassfeld-Pressegger See region? Body and mind get to take a breather, and you’ll experience utter wellbeing at the scenic-view saunas or during a soothing massage. Alpine wellness surrounded by a breathtaking mountain landscape – that’s definitely a “nice surprise” in the Nassfeld region!

You’re looking for the definition of relaxation? Congratulations! You’ve found it on the sunny side of the Alps – because that’s where you can enjoy an all-round wellness package. And even besides the healthy-and-fit offers, Carinthia’s hosts will be happy to attend to all your wishes.

Food tip: Have you ever heard of Slow Food? Select partner businesses uphold the region’s culinary heritage and exclusively use regional ingredients in their products and creations. They serve their guests traditional local cuisine – to be savoured slowly and mindfully.
