The nature park hotel is located in the south
west of Carinthia, right on the shore of Lake Weissensee. The view from the
hotel is magnificent yet calming. In summer, there is a diverse and green
landscape right in front of your window. In winter, the white snow will take
you down the memory lane to your childhood.
Lake Weissensee is located in the Gailtal Alps, in the area between the towns of Spittal, Villach and Lienz. You can reach our hotel by car or train. For those flying in, we recommend the two nearby airports in Klagenfurt and Salzburg.
