Unlimited holiday pleasure

Hiking in the Gailtal

Would you like to enjoy action, relaxation or the panorama, or preferably plunge into the warm (28 °C) lake, relax or start a culinary tour through the region? At Nassfeld-Pressegger See, in the Lesach Valley or in the Weissensee Nature Park, holidaymakers can discover something new every day at a whim.


One surprise after the other awaits guests at the holiday destination Nassfeld-Pressegger See: cross-border tours to Italy delight hikers and bikers, and families discover new areas of adventure in the mountains or around Pressegger See, gourmets can be pampered by the finest regional cuisine, and everyone can enjoy the breathtaking panorama.


The Lesach Valley, the most natural valley in Europe, offers the “sound of silence”: a rarely found pristine world of nature and mountains. Nowhere else can you escape from the stress of everyday life as well as you can in this award-winning countryside! Rest and relaxation automatically come about in a leisure mode. At Weissensee, the highest located swimming lake in Europe, you can enjoy “pure nature, relaxation and wellbeing in the here and now”. The crystal-clear water of the lake reflects all shades of colour ranging from Caribbean turquoise to nearly black. Soft tourism is a priority in the area of Austria’s cleanest swimming lake: the eastern part of the lake features an unobstructed and traffic-free landscape.
