Holidays are special here, say the guests. And rightly so. Afritz am See offers a unique mountain-lake-adventure in the Valley north of Villach, nestled in-between the soft peaks of the Nockberge. For nature lovers, relaxation seekers, families and active tourists alike. Lake Afritz is refreshingly different. Refreshingly relaxing.
Afritzer Lake is a natural and popular swimming lake (1.7 kilometres long, 340 metres wide and up to 22.5 metres deep) with the water quality of drinking water. Here you have the opportunity to read exactly that book which you have been meaning to read for ages, to watch the children play at the waterfront and to just enjoy the tranquillity. For tranquil it is as there are no motorboats allowed here! Especially relaxing: Walking leisurely around the lake - three and a half idyllic kilometres along the promenade exclusively for pedestrians so no need to worry about cyclists. Directly at the lake you will find 2 public lidos and two campsites. Fishing dreams also come true at the Afritzer Lake due to a large number of banks free from any natural or manmade barriers. “Ready, steady, get hiking” is the motto of the local mountain of Afritz, the Verditz. It is a hikers paradise far from any hustle and bustle. Afritz is a recreational area in the winter also. Stunning: the hiking trails with panoramic view of the Afritzer Lake. If you would like to pedal hard, just hop on your saddle and enjoy the numerous mountain bike routes. Go for it!
