Ossiach

Österreich Kärnten Biken Ossiacher See


The village of Ossiach on the south side of Lake Ossiach (Ossiacher See) has it all so to speak: peace and relaxation on the one hand, fun and action on the other. Ossiach has gained a reputation of being a charming resort all year round with perfect infrastructure (shops, cafés, restaurants etc.) and a stunning backdrop with lakes and mountains. Its focal point is however the historic monastery with its Baroque abbey church. The former Benedictine monastery dating back to the 11th century has long been a renowned cultural centre, venue for the international Carinthian Summer music festival and home to the Carinthian Music Academy (CMA). It is only a quick change from your lounger on the lake to the concert hall. An incredible atmosphere.

 

Fun for all the family: the beach on Lake Ossiach with a 92-metre-long water slide, wide jetty, extensive area of grass for sunbathing and the water that is clean enough to drink. Other facilities include a beach volleyball court, inline skating area, children’s playground and floating iceberg. In summer the water temperatures can reach a very pleasant 26 degrees. Water sports? There are endless opportunities here.
