Winter Hiking

You can enjoy winter in an active and relaxing way at Lake Millstatt - namely on the gentle winter hikes in the idyllic snow-covered nature.  The snow crunches under your feet, whilst you find inner peace walking along one of the countless trails around the lake. The white mountains surround you, the lake glistening in the sunshine, the peace  that a snowy landscape has in itself. Winter hikes are relaxing and good for you. Off the trails, you can also dive a little further into the nature on a snow shoe hike in the deep snow.

Toboggan Adventure

Tobogganing is one of the particularly popular activities on a winter holiday - after all, you can go really fast on the sleds with well-polished runners and contest many a fun race within the family circle.  You climb the mountain in no time at all - at the top, the warm, cosy mountain restaurant awaits, with good, hearty Carinthian cuisine, such as Kaiserschmarrn (sugared and shredded pancakes) or Brettljause and a warm cup of cocoa. Then it's time to gain momentum and go back down again, curve after curve. Close to Döbriach, the Alpengasthof Bergfried natural toboggan run with a length of 1.9km, as well as three other toboggan runs around the Lake Millstatt await.

Ski Tours

Winter at Lake Millstatt means endless activity. Those who've had enough of skiing and tobogganing, can go on a long horse-drawn carriage ride through the beautiful winter nature. A romantic experience for couples - but equally exciting for kids. In addition to this, there’s ice-skating and curling on the winter activity programme. Whether you choose pirouetting or try to push the ice stock close to the “Daube”, both are a lot of fun. For adults, cross-country skiing on the Lake Millstatt is also a special experience. Glide gently through the nature and enjoy exercise that is beneficial for the body and mind.

At the Lake Millstatt, everyone who likes to cast a line, can find very good conditions for it, thanks to the depth (up to 142 m) and the purity of the water. The white fish especially feel at home here, but other fish also enjoy the  windless location, the several shaded surfaces and the hideaways in the water. many an angler face large and small challenges here. You can fish on the Lake Millstatt, as soon as you have obtained your fishing permit or a guest fishing card. We will gladly inform you about this at the Familiengut Burgstaller.
