Vacation with dog at the Wörthersee - very gladly!

Misters and mistresses are welcome guests at the Wörthersee with their four-legged friends, the explanations should help if you are not sure what some regulations are, where you can swim with your best friend, which destinations are visited, etc.

Please note that there are also some regulations regarding the wearing of a muzzle and the leash requirement.

Legal requirements

So no surprises await you.

At the border crossing you should have a valid vaccination certificate, which is not older than 12 months. In built-up areas there is a leash obligation. In addition, there is a muzzle obligation in all public transport and shipping, as well as in public places!

According to bathing hygiene regulations, dogs are prohibited from bathing in public standing baths. This also explains why it is so difficult to go swimming with your dog in the entire state. Thus, it is not accommodations or bath operators who do not want dogs, but a legal regulation that stands above it.
