Aussichtsturm Pyramidenkogel

Reviewed By Hendrik_NL - Rotterdam, The Netherlands

It was busy at the Pyramidenkogel with coaches and "petjesauto's" (This is a Dutch word for more or less derelict cars with noisy exhaust systems, mostly driven by youthful persons with baseball caps). Later we became aware that is was the annual GTI week was celebrated here. But returning to my review, with clear weather it is always rewarding to go up (by elevator) and enjoy the impressive views over the Worthersee. Free parking, entrance for a fee. Free entrance with the Kärnten Card. By the way, when on the viewing platform it is also spectacular to see approaching coaches negotiate the final hairpin curves to the parking lot.

Wallfahrtskirche Maria Worth

Reviewed By Hendrik_NL - Rotterdam, The Netherlands

On the small peninsula, where the village proper Maria Wörth is situated, the main church, the Wallfahrtkirche, is situated on a low hill. Step up through a stone gate up some steps into the churchyard. The churchyard is interesting with "headstones" artistically made of wrought iron. The church itself, inside, is decorated, as most Catholic churches with a splendid altar, a richly appointed pulpit and many priceless images. By the way, Maria Wörth is best visited in spring or autumn. In the summer, this village on the Wörther See is teeming with tourists and parking spaces are then at premium.

Parkbad Krumpendorf

Reviewed By DeGustibus67 - Turin, Italy

E’ la spiaggia attrezzata a pagamento della cittadina che vi consiglio per apprezzare un’esperienza balneare nel pulitissimo lago Worther…peraltro in una zona più tranquilla e defilata rispetto alle più caotiche spiagge della zona di Klagenfurt.
Noi ci siamo stati due volte ed in un caso abbiamo fatto sosta relax solo per qualche ora (ad esempio, dalle ore 18 alle ore 20 l’ingresso costa € 2,60/persona, mentre tutta la giornata si spendono circa 12 euro/persona).
Possibilità di giochi per bimbi, grandissima pulizia nei servi igienici e sul curatissimo prato, in pratica la “spiaggia” vera e propria, oltre alla possibilità di praticare diversi sport acquatici e noleggiare bici!
A ridosso dei pontili dove tuffarsi, o scendere in acqua dagli appositi scalini, noterete anche una targhetta con la profondità dell’acqua (!) e c'è la possibilità di affittare lettini e sdraio, o consumare qualche spuntino al bar….un po’ come nei nostri stabilimenti e lidi balneari!
Il mare è altra cosa, ma è stata una grande scoperta anche per le calde acque del lago (circa 27-28°!!) dove ci siamo rilassati!
Abbiamo molto apprezzato la grande civiltà e sicurezza del luogo!
Ritorneremmo già domani e lo consigliamo a tutti…in particolare alle famiglie con bimbi!!
N.B.: A ridosso della spiaggia comodo parcheggio (a pagamento).

Sommerrodelbahn Moosburg

Reviewed By Koen H - Ghent, Belgium

This is great fun. We did it together with our kids, and even our youngest who is only 6 years old, was able to go on this attraction by herself, and she had a lot of fun doing so. We bought a ticket for each person of 5 + 1 for free.

Tenne

Reviewed By anma1973 - Udine, Italy

Locale da ballo situato sulla strada principale che porta da Velden a Klagenfurt di fronte alla stazione ferroviaria. Parcheggio proporzionato al locale. Sala da ballo non grandissima ma, vista l'affluenza copiosa, di tendenza. All'ingresso una gentil donzella vi farà pagare 3 euro. Già dalle ore 22 c'è un bel movimento, clientela eterogenea per genere ed età (lo potete vedere anche dalle foto pubblicate nel sito internet). Musica ok. Prezzo delle consumazioni in linea con la tipologia di attrazione. Penso che sia il posto ideale per trascorrere il dopo drink di Velden.

Casino Velden

Reviewed By IDea1 - Austria

Actually we had a real fun night at the Casino. With the Velden Basic Card which we received for free from our hotel we received a discount on the entry. Actually it was a package of entry plus chips worth € 30 plus one additional chip which you could go for a full number ("Glückschip"), plus a nice glas Prosecco.
I personally preferred it to the Casino in Vienna as it has a bigger main area and a round bar in the middle, where you can watch the different tables from. I even had the feeling that the average age of visitors was lower than in Vienna. As well the dresscode seems not to be as strict (lot of people wearing just jeans).
The drinks at the bar were nice, even all cocktails really good. And not to forget the piano player who was amazing. Just can recommend to go there for a nice evening out ...

Winterkirche

Reviewed By Hendrik_NL - Rotterdam, The Netherlands

The "Winterkirche" (also called the "Rosenkranzkirche") is situated on the same peninsula, where the large parish church of Maria Wörth is looming. In fact you will pass the low hill where the "Winterkirche" is built when approaching the main church. But don't dismiss the "Winterkirche". It may be small, but has a long history. In the 9th century there was already a place of worship. The "Winterkirche" was established in the 12th century. So include this church in your Maria Wörth tour and step inside to marvel at the austere beauty of the inside.

Promenadenbad

Reviewed By Emily A

Fantastic place for swimming!! Better than the public beach at Velden - lovely clean beach and water, lots of space for sunbathing, clean loos, reasonable sun lounger hire, a big slide for all ages and good ice cream. Perfect for families and couples. I've been on a lot of lakeside holidays and this is the best lake side beach I've ever been to in Europe!
