A winter (sports) holiday in the Villach - Faaker See - Ossiacher See region will undoubtedly be memorable. Because aside from the many romantic Advent markets and the last Christmas celebrations, all kinds of exciting and sports experiences await you!
Our ski mountains Gerlitzen Alpe, which rises high above Ossiacher See, and Dreiländereck, where Austria, Italy and Slovenia come together, are not only ideally suited to skiing and apres-ski. High up in the snowy peaks you will also find the most beautiful ski touring routes and fun sledging runs. Skiing facilities were closed years ago on Dobratsch, the local mountain for Villach residents, in order to protect the fragile nature reserve. However, one can still go on interesting guided snow shoe tours, even up to the Gipfelhaus at the peak.
And for those for whom this is all too high up: there is ice skating at the lake Aichwaldsee or right in town, on the town hall square. Cross-country skiers will also be delighted when they discover the perfectly prepared trails at the foot of Dobratsch.
