Austria - Carinthia (Chapter)
This is the Carinthia chapter from Lonely Planet’s Austria guidebook.
Few regions in Europe match the rugged beauty of Carinthia. It can also, at times, seem larger than life: the spectacularly high peaks, the gouged valleys and the glistening lakes, not to forget the flamboyant show of opulence in the capital, Klagenfurt, and the popular resorts around its pristine mountain lakes.
- hike the spectacular Garnitzenklamm gorge and cycle through the mountainous wilds around Hermagor
- visit the Eboard Museum in Klagenfurt and play vintage pre-digital keyboards
- restaurants & accommodation
- swim the shores of the Wörthersee and enjoy a lakeside meal afterwards at Restaurant Maria Loretto
Coverage includes: Klagenfurt, Wörthersee, Villach & around, Hermagor, Friesach, Gurk, Hüttenberg, St Veit An Der Glan, Burg Hochosterwitz, Maria Saal, Gmünd, Spittal An Der Drau and Millstätter See.
