Insider tips for Advent Engerlgeflüster from Lake Wörthersee

STILL.

Um richtig besinnlich und ruhig in Adventstimmung zu kommen empfehlen die Advent-Engerln einen Besuch des stillen Advent in Pörtschach. Klassisch lauscht man dort den Klängen heimischer Chöre.

GROSSartig.

Der schwimmende Adventkranz in der Veldener Bucht lässt sich aus nächster Nähe besichtigen. Wie? Natürlich bei einer Schifffahrt.

ERLEDIGT.

Um die Weihnachtseinkäufe und Geschenkejagd erfolgreich abzuschließen garantieren die Veldener Kaufleute jede Menge Auswahl und beste Beratung.

ERFRISCHEND.

Auch im Winter wird im Wörthersee geschwommen! Beim wöchentlichen Winterschwimmen am Sonntag um 10.00 Uhr vor dem Schlosshotel Velden treffen sich echte Schwimmfans. Dort findet dann der gemeinsame Sprung ins kalte Nass statt. Ebenso zum Neujahrsschwimmen am 1. Januar. Dabeisein oder zumindest Zusehen loht sich immer.

VIELFÄLTIG.

In den Orten rund um den Wörthersee gibt es zahlreiche traditionelle Veranstaltungen, die allen Gästen einen schönen Einblick in die Kärntner Adventzeit bieten. Natürlich auch ein Fixpunkt für alle Einheimischen.

ROMANTISCH.

Authentische Adventkonzerte und ein Spaziergang auf der Halbinsel von Maria Wörth. Ein besonderer Insidertipp in der besinnlichen Adventzeit. Zum Einen um in sich zu kehren, zum Anderen um sich auf ein wärmendes Getränk im Anschluss besonders zu freuen.

WOLKENLOS.

Um im winterlichen Nebel nicht den Weitblick zu verlieren, sollten Sie unbedingt den wolkenlosen Adventmarkt und Aussichtsturm am Pyramidenkogel besuchen.

ALT UND NEU.

Verschieden, aber harmonisch. In Klagenfurt erwarten die Gäste unterschiedliche Inszenierungen der Weihnacht. Vorzufinden am Alten und Neuen Platz.

SCHAURIG SCHÖN.

Obwohl unsere Krampusse einem beim Anblick das Fürchten lehren, sind die Masken meist sehr künstlerisch Gestaltet. Der Besuch eines Krampuslaufes darf auf der Advent-Bucketlist nicht fehlen.

LAND, LUFT, WASSER.

Der Veldener Advent 3er ist ein ganz besonderes Angebot. Zum Vorteilspreis Bummelzug, Riesenrad und Santa Lucia Märchenschiff im Kombipaket entdecken.

Christmas feeling at the Wörthersee

The pre-Christmas season in Carinthia

Advent in Carinthia means enjoyment, romance and authenticity. Above all, however, the pre-Christmas atmosphere offers deceleration. In summer, the Alpe Adria Trail connects the towns of Carinthia. In winter, however, it is the Advent markets and Christmas places. Accordingly, the serene mood of locals and guests can be experienced. Depending on whether they like to stroll through winter landscapes. Or perhaps they prefer to seek company at Advent markets. In any case, in Carinthia you will find everything your heart desires.

Places, markets and more

Advent markets are especially popular at Christmas time. Whether Villach, Klagenfurt, Velden or Millstatt. While you are strolling Christmassy, you will find the classics of a Christkindlmarkt everywhere. In addition, of course, genuine handicrafts will delight you. In no case should the typical Christmas scent be missing: First, the scent of incense. Second, subtle notes of mulled wine and punch. And third, of course, the irresistible smell of Christmas baking. Thus, childhood memories are reawakened in Carinthia.

Tradition and customs

In addition, customs and tradition are also very important. Especially the Carinthian folk culture offers many highlights. At Christmas time, it is above all choirs, Krampus groups and Christian customs that fill the calendar of events. Almost every place has its own special customs.

Experience nature

However, the south of Austria offers much more in the way of nature. Do you prefer a sporty and active Advent season? Whether skiing, cross-country skiing or snowshoeing. Numerous valleys and mountains invite you to activities. Basically, the following recommendation applies: during the day actively explore magnificent landscapes. In the evening, an idyllic end in a Christmas atmosphere. But a combination of both is also possible. One of the highlights of the Carinthian Advent is the Katschberg Advent Trail. From restored haystacks to tea stations and singing. There is plenty to experience during the 6.8-kilometer walk. And without kitsch and commercialism at 1,750 meters above sea level.

Well-being program

Got enough fresh air? The more you have discovered outdoors, the more you deserve a warming time-out. Although your accommodation offers you a wellness program, there are still a few tips. On the one hand, a visit to the Kärnten Therme in Villach is worthwhile. On the other hand, the Drautalperle in Spittal an der Drau. Somewhat higher up, there are also two spas in Bad Kleinkirchheim.

The bottom line is that there is no reason to stay away from Carinthia during Advent. Consequently, nothing stands in the way of a visit. In the meantime, you can find all the options for a journey here.
