Schifffahrt am Weissensee

Reviewed By Eric-Jan - Lommel, Belgium

We did the entire 2 hours boat tour in excellent weather conditions, providing continuously changing and great views. People were diving into and swimming in the lake and waving their hands as you pass them. Staff on the MS Alpenperle (operated by the Müller family; M1 on the schedule) was friendly and supportive. Food and drinks were OK and not too expensive, but overall value for money could have been better. Both indoor and outdoor Seating were very relaxing. Highly recommended to enjoy the beautiful views in a relaxing way!

Weissensee

Reviewed By Hendrik_NL - Rotterdam, The Netherlands

And rightly so. There is much to do around the Weissensee, not in the least the "Bergbahn" which offers a magnificent view over this body of water. But boat trips, boat tours, water sports, eating and drinking are all provided for. And in the winter, when the Weissensee is frozen over, the Dutch skating enthusiasts come over to ride the alternative "Elfstedentocht" (Eleven Cities Tour). This is a skating tour along eleven cities in Friesland, the Netherlands, which seldom can be organized, because of the clement winter weather. So the frozen over Weissensee is their alternative.

Weissensee Bergbahn

Reviewed By Hendrik_NL - Rotterdam, The Netherlands

The Weissensee Bergbahn offers a trip in an open seat to the summit of the mountain. On top of the mountain, several activities can be developed. Having a nice walk is possible; on a 12 minutes distance a restaurant is situated. Mountain bikers take their bike up in the Bergbahn and barrel down the mountain on their bike, nerve chilling, over narrow paths. A limited number of picnic seats with view over the Weissensee are provided for. But the icing on the cake is the ride down with spectacular views over the Weissensee and Techendorf. At the base station, ample parking is provided for. Don't forget to pay 6 Euros for parking fee at the ticket machine. And don't forget to reclaim the 6 Euros at the ticket counter of the Bergbahn by presenting the stub of the parking ticket, when getting your Bergbahn tickets. Free entrance with the Kärnten Card. Also then you get the parking fee refund.

INTERSPORT Alpensport

Reviewed By Azalee99 - Vienna, Austria

very convenient for renting your skates etc. right next to the lake. a bit overrun during high season, and not a bargain basement, but what you et is of decent quality.

Zum ersten Mal in einem See tauchen war für mich auf jeden Fall ein Abenteuer. Der Weissensee war sicher nicht die schlechteste Wahl dafür. Zwar gibt es keine Pflanzen unter Wasser zu sehen, dafür aber ein Menge Fisch, vorallem am "Hausriff". Wir sind links bis zur "Pipeline" getaucht ud haben einen großen Schwarm Barsche beobachten können, ein Hecht hat sich auch gezeigt. Alles in allem haben wir sehr große Karpfen, Hechte, Barsche und sehr viel junge Fische gesehen. Das Tauchpersonal war sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend. Das war das Positive zu diesem Tauchshop. Das Negative ist die Besitzerin. Sie beobachtet einen ständig misstrauisch, sie war null hilfsbereit, beantwortete Fragen dürftig, war an allen Tagen genervt und hatte kein Interesse daran etwas zu verkaufen. Die hat es geschafft, dass sich unsere komplette Gruppe unwohl fühlte.
Ein Diveguide hat uns dann am zweiten Tag erzählt, das die Besitzerin den Tauchshop aufgeben möchte und nach Kroatien gehen wird. Scheinbar haben die dort noch eine Basis. Vielleicht gibt es einen besseren Nachfolger. Und mir war sofort klar, dass ich den Tauchshop in Kroatien nicht aufsuchen werde.
