Afritz am See

Österreich Kärnten Sommerurlaub See Afritzer See

It’s a good place to live. So say the locals. It’s a good place for a holiday. So say the visitors.

With good reason. Afritz am See in the Gegend Valley north of Villach, nestling between the rolling Nock Mountains, enjoys unique lakes and mountains scenery. For nature lovers, families, the active and those who want a rest.

Sun lounger number 183 in row 10? You can have that if you want, just not on Lake Afritz. It is refreshingly different. Refreshingly relaxing. A popular, natural lake (1.7 kilometres long, 340 metres wide, up to 22.5 metres deep) with water good enough to drink. Here you can swim, watch the children paddling in the shallow water or enjoy that book you have always wanted to read, while savouring the peace and quiet. Adding to the attraction for many: no motor boats here. What is also particularly relaxing is a walk round the lake on the promenade. You can stroll for 3.5 kilometres without setting foot on a road. Totally idyllic. Two beaches for swimming and sunbathing plus two camp sites on the lake.

Anglers will also be in their element here, as there are not many buildings and the lake is mostly freely accessible. Walkers are more likely to head for the nearest mountain to Afritz am See – Verditz. Once you are on a trail, stress simply melts away. In winter, too, it is a popular recreation area. A must: the walks with wonderful views of Lake Afritz. If you prefer more energetic ascents, you can explore the area by bicycle. There are also several mountain bike routes here. On your bikes!
