Scenic Drive · Bodies of Water · Theme Parks
Visitors find a natural paradise at Carinthia, an Austrian province home to hundreds of lakes, ski slopes, and the country's leading spas. Ski the Eastern Alps or soak up the warmth at the area's renowned thermal springs. Among the province's gems is the area's largest lake and one of the country's most popular tourist attractions. Mountain views abound, but if you prefer city life to outdoor recreation, head to the state's capital, Klagenfurt, or explore medieval treasures such as Friesach or Gmund.
