A SEASONAL CHAMELEON: LAKE PRESSEGGER SEE
In summer, Lake Pressegger See – with its 28-degrees water temperature – attracts countless swimming enthusiasts. In winter, it’s covered with a thick layer of ice. Because of its three-metre-tall reeds and the numerous species of fish that inhabit the lake, it’s known for being one of Carinthia’s natural treasures. In particularly cold winters, Lake Pressegger See completely freezes over and thus becomes an Eldorado for ice skaters.
ICE SKATING ON LAKE WEISSENSEE
Almost like clockwock, the 6.5-square-kilometre Lake Weissensee in Carinthia freezes over right around 25 November. Starting at the smaller western end, it’s completely covered in a 40-centrimetre layer of ice by mid-December. And then it won’t be long before the first ice skaters show up …
What’s more, ice skaters and holiday guests can skate along several circular tracks from four to 25 kilometres in length.
