Ossiacher See has three options to cool off for free:
In Steindorf there is unassuming lake access with parking by the Ossiacher See Halle. You go past the Laggner campsite along a gravel path until the lake. Two wooden benches invite you to relax and enjoy the lake.
If you are looking to cool off quickly, then the "mini beach" in Bodensdorf is just right. Coming from Villach along the north shore along the cycle path F2 "Ossiacher See cycle path", one can see an electrical substation on the right side just after the end of Bodensdorf. Turn right here and it is about 130 metres along a path between two well-tended hedges to the lakeshore and free lake access.
On the southern shore of Ossiacher See there is the family-friendly lakeside beach St. Andrä. Here one can play on the large lawn and enjoy the fabulous weather under the shade of trees. Two swimming jetties and a shore area with round gravel make the trip perfect.
Those not arriving at Ossiacher See by bicycle can park their car to the south of the road for a fee of 2.40 euros per day.
