Bike map Carinthian Lakes

Highlights and places of interest along the route:


Tour of the 10 lakes – the name says it all! On this journey you cycle past all the famous lakes of the wonderful region of Carinthia and discover a few smaller ones that are less well-known but no less appealing. The Weißensee is the highest bathing lake in the Alps, nestled like a fjord in the landscape. The Wörthersee is the scene for sophisticated guests. The Faaker See fascinates again with its turquoise blue color and wonderfully warm water up to 27 degrees. All of them are „shrouded“ by well-developed bike paths with very good signage, and in many places you can just jump into the water: Here leisure cyclists and families are in good hands.

Characteristics of the route:

The tour of the 10 lakes is a comfortable bike trip for everyone. On mostly paved bike paths, the tours lead without significant gradients through Carinthia‘s lake district. The paths are flat and lead in many areas directly along the lake.
This bike tour is also suitable for families with children over 14 years.
