Who would've thought that there is an ice skating paradise in the south west of Carinthia? Every winter, Lake Weissensee freezes over, forming a 6.5km2 nature ice surface. The ice is up to 40cm thick, which means that it is perfectly safe for different sports activities on ice as well as for horse-drawn sleighs or just walking.
