A family vacation in Carinthia is the perfect choice for families in search of relaxation and adventure by the lake after exploring the alpine landscape around Bad Kleinkirchheim. Lake Millstätter See forms the backdrop for a varied excursion destination with plenty to see and do for visitors of all ages. The wide range of offers designed with families in mind make a visit to the lake particularly attractive. Swimming, boating, sailing, stand-up paddling, or water skiing – families will be spoilt for choice during their vacation at the lake.
Water sports at Lake Millstätter See
Lake Millstätter See is the deepest lake and the one with the largest water volume of all 1000 Carinthian lakes. So it seems only logical to take in the magnificent beauty of this crystal clear swimming lake not only from its shoreline but also try out the wide range of water sports activities on offer.
The Sittlinger lakeside beach in Döbriach at Millstätter See is a magnet for summer fun with plenty of water sports activities, whether with an experienced guide or on your own. Start at a slower pace with stand-up paddling before switching to more speedy activities. Along with water skiing, the adjacent water ski school also features wakeboarding and tube riding. How convenient to enjoy free admission to Strandbad Sittlingeras our guest.
Those who prefer to take it easy, can explore the unspoilt southern shore on a boat tour. Row across the lake with a picnic basket and take a seat at the most scenic natural spots.
Lake Brennsee - a small paradise in its own right
While the enchanting Lake Brennsee is popular with sailing, surfing and stand-up paddling enthusiasts, it also has plenty to offer in the way of family fun. Constant winds provide perfect conditions for sailors of all skill levels, so it’s with good reason that Lake Brennsee is called Carinthia’s surfing paradise. Beginners can head out with the help of local instructors while experts will find what they are looking for with excellent thermal conditions, allowing them to show cool freestyle moves on the board or cruise with their keel boats and catamarans across the lake’s crystal-clear waters
