A holiday for children and parents
There is also a varied programme for children, along with a range of cultural and gastronomic events where typical regional delicacies are served. Those who wish to do so can upgrade the Erlebnis CARD to the Kärnten Card - for free entry to more than 100 trip destinations throughout Carinthia. The CARD is available free from all participating hosts!
Special moments are all the more enjoyable when they are experienced and shared with others: the view over Carinthia from Gerlitzen Alpe, the sunset at the turquoise Faaker See, a blossoming meadow full of gladiolas, a fun walk through Villach.
With the Erlebnis CARD, you as a guest receive a colourful bouquet of possibilities in your hand, so you can enjoy fabulous moments at the heart of Carinthia. In total there are over 600 offers that have been put together by our hiking, nature and town guides, cycle guides and storytellers. They therefore offer you not only time together, but also special encounters and sometimes even quite personal insights into their homeland. It ranges from the SPRING FIT programme, which offers not only pleasant temperatures but also attractive programme items for families, leisurely sportspeople and ambitious cyclists, to the SUMMER ACTIVE programme and AUTUMN LEISURE. Apart from this special offer, from 1 May to 31 October there is a weekly fixed programme, as well as a range of activities to choose from. We are happy to tell stories about our homeland and to share this region with all those who find it just as beautiful as we do.
