Swimming with your dog at Lake Wörthersee

At Lake Wörthersee there is a bathing prohibition for dogs in the public bathing beaches. At the Forstsee (signposted area) and at the Kleiner See (north of the Forstsee), at the Trattnigteich (in certain areas) and at the Hafnersee (own dog beach) dogs are welcome guests. Next to the lido Klagenfurt is a so-called "dog meadow" at this point the dogs are allowed in the lake.

Some hotels have the regulation at the in-house bathing beach that dogs are allowed on the beach and in the water early in the morning and in the evening, but this must always be clarified with the host.

Golfing with the dog at the Wörthersee

For golf enthusiasts there is a special offer at the golf courses Klagenfurt-Seltenheim, Moosburg and Velden / Köstenberg. Here it is made possible for dog owners not to lose sight of their faithful companion even while playing golf. Thus, nothing stands in the way of golf fun during a vacation with a dog at Lake Wörthersee!

Cycling with the dog at Lake Wörthersee

Explore Carinthia, the cycling country! The Drau Cycle Path R1, from Sillian in East Tyrol to Lavamünd is probably one of the most renowned routes of Carinthia's cycle path network. Enjoy the magnificent scenery and dare an excursion with bike and dog!

Especially for tourists in the region around Velden and Schiefling, the Wörthersee bike tour is a great option. This route is almost entirely spared from car traffic on the main road and is also manageable for the less trained. A recommendable variant of the Wörthersee tour is the trip over the Keutschacher Seental. Here, the return trip is not via the south shore road, but via the Keutschacher Seental, past the Rauschele, Baßgeigen, Keutschacher and Hafnersee lakes. At these lakes you can rest and go swimming with your dog. Many call the Rosental the most beautiful landscape in Carinthia, and there is also a bike tour here: the Rosental Tour. From Rosegg to the Drau bridge Selkach you can ride on the Drau cycle path, then it goes back, on quiet side roads. So nothing stands in the way of a bike tour during your vacation with your dog at Lake Wörthersee!

Offer your dog enough breaks and adjust your pace to the dog! Maybe you also have a dog trailer with you, so that your dog can rest on longer, asphalt roads.
