Lake Millstatt is located at 588m above sea level on the southern side of the main chain of the Alps and has a mild climate. Average summer temperature in the region is 25ºC. Climatically, the lake is also favoured by an upwind, which provides more sunny days than elsewhere. As the deepest and most water-rich lake in Carinthia, Lake Millstatt is not only very temperature-stable, but also one of the warmest lakes with a surface temperature of up to 22ºC – 25ºC in summer. Bathing season is from May to September.
A 28km long bike path surrounds Lake Millstatt, which is ideal for beginners, people returning to cycling, or families who want to enjoy a leisurely bike ride. The bike path leads directly through our village, Dellach, and along the route there are numerous opportunities to experience the lake, nature and culinary delights. The bike ride around the lake can also be shortened or combined with the two bike ferries that sail across the lake. Of course, the region also offers more demanding mountain bike and road bike tours, such as “Sternentrail” downhill MTB track or the “Nockalmrunde” circular road course through the Nockberge Mountains.
The region around Lake Millstatt forms the transition between the smooth hills of the Nockberge and the rugged 3000m high mountain peaks of the Hohe Tauern. Numerous hiking and climbing routes with varying degrees of difficulty offer each mountain enthusiast an unforgettable experience. Examples in the immediate vicinity of the campsite are:
Only 5 minutes walk from the campsite is the lovingly designed “Fish-snack in the garden”. Here you are not only spoiled with freshly prepared fish dishes, but you can also buy freshly caught fish from the local lake fishery.
If you enjoy angling, you are in the right place at Lake Millstatt. Especially at the annual fishing competition for the “Crystal Whitefish” are passionate anglers in good company. To cast the line and catch a fish yourself you need a fishing permit (available at the regional tourist offices).
The boat landing is only 150m from the campsite. Your starting point for a boat trip on Lake Millstatt that opens up an amazing view onto the mountains from the middle of the lake.
