Vacation rentals on the shores of Weissensee
Weissensee, situated within the state of Carinthia, is Austria's highest glacial lake, and a protected natural wonder. Striking vistas await visitors to this scenic location surrounded by the Gailtal Alps, so that you will be in no doubt about its restorative qualities.
After a day carving up the slopes, warm up with goulash soup and apfelstrudel, both of which Austria is known for. Be sure to sample a cinnamon, clove and orange-infused gluhwein too, particularly during the winter months. Head to Regitnig's Restaurant Am Weissense for these Austrian favourites, where you can also take in outstanding views over the lake.
About 30 miles east of Weissensee, you'll find the tranquil lake of Millstatt, which is also the location of an internationally-renowned music festival. Musikwochen Millstatt runs from June to October and attracts large numbers with its great program of classical, choral and chamber music. There's also an abbey that has stood here for nearly a thousand years, having been established by Benedictine monks in 1070. Spittal an der Drau is another attractive town with a Renaissance palace and park rich in flowers.
