Unique spot of Austria

Enjoy the Pressegger See

A little to the east of Hermagor, about 10 minutes drive from your accommodation in Jenig, you will find the Pressegger See. The locals call this lake the 'bathtub' of the Gailtal. The reason is the high temperature of the lake, in the summer it can run up to 28 degrees. The Pressegger See lies at an altitude of 560 meters and is 55 hectares in size. Because the lake is not very deep, it is very suitable for the holidaymaker. The Pressegger See is a real family destination, with good facilities around the lake, even for the little ones. In the summer you can relax on the several beaches around the lake. Swimming in the lovely water but also renting a supboard, water bike or canoe is possible, or follow a surf lesson. You will also find the Karnter Erlebnispark right on the lake. This adventure park is one big playground with several fun equipment and attractions. Prefer to the pool? An outdoor swimming pool is a 5-minute drive away.

Sledding at Kärtnten and more

The Millennium Expres also brings you up to the mountains in summer. Here is a sledding run (the longest in Carinthia) that takes you back to the middle station on the Tressdorfer Alm, of course there are cows on the Alm. The Aqua trail is also definitely worth a visit and fun for children.

If you are looking for even more adventure, there is a challenging outdoor park or take your mountain bike and cycle yourself down. From next summer there is also a new bike trail available that will take you to the valley. In addition, there is also the fanatical golfer, 5 minutes away you will find the nearest golf course.

Do not forget about the Garnitzenklamm in Gortschach (near Hermagor). This beautiful walk through a gorge is highly recommended for the summer. Please put on your hiking shoes, you will need them!
