Hol­i­days at lake Os­siach

A hidden gem among Austria’s lakes

Lake Ossiach is a wonderful place for a holiday. There is so much to enjoy here: dreamy secluded spots, natural shores, beaches that are fun for the whole family and excellent water quality. Pure pleasure awaits you! But be warned: Lake Ossiach is sure to leave a lasting impression on you, and there is a good chance you’ll be back: to go boating, windsurfing, stand-up paddleboarding or swimming. Plus, there is a 28-km-long bike path around the lake.

You can even combine your bike ride with a boat trip. The Hotel eduCARE team and the Buchacher family will be happy to fill you in on particularly beautiful places. Hotel guests get discounted admission to beaches. There are many things to do and places to go swimming on holiday on Lake Ossiach for the whole family – dogs included!

Magical winter holidays

Lake Ossiach is not only a great place for summer holidays – it is the setting for winter holiday fairy-tales, too. Zip down the slopes or take it easy at the ski resorts near the Hotel eduCARE; the sledging hills are just waiting to be tried out and the ice rinks offer plenty of room for pirouettes and fancy footwork.

If you prefer a quieter holiday, strap on some snowshoes and trudge over the snow on foot – surrounded by wonderful silence. And at Christmastime, you’ll notice a very special atmosphere on Lake Ossiach: get in the Christmas spirit with a visit to the candle-lit Advent market at Lake Ossiach.
