Region Millstätter See
Towards the end of the 19th century, Millstatt grew into a flourishing "summer resort". In 1879 the first villa was built, since then the picture changed especially in the area of architecture. Many aristocrats had their summer residence built here. The villas from the Wilhelminian era, which today characterize the townscape of Millstatt, are marked by panels on the houses and described in Millstätter Villen-Wegweiser.
The first Carinthia bathhouse is reminiscent of the time of the summer resort. The modern Seenwellness complex, which opened its doors only at the end of 2012, is designed in the style of the historic bathhouses of the 19th century and spoils its guests with 4 sauna cabins, a tepedarium, a brine steam bath and various spa facilities.
High culture in Carinthia
A striking feature of Millstatt is the abbey, which takes its guests back into the past: the Benedictine abbey with its collegiate church, the famous World Court fresco, the wedding parade of Paola Gonzaga and the cloister from the 12th century, has been the spiritual and cultural center of Carinthia for centuries. Today it is one of the most important monuments of Romanesque architecture in Carinthia.
A guided tour of the monastery but also a visit to the Abbey Museum gives an insight into days long past. A documentation of the Millstätter history, starting with the earliest settlement activity in the Neolithic period and numerous works of art from the Roman and the early Christian period, as well as Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque can be seen here. Many visitors will remember the dungeon room from the first half of the 16th century.
Countless cultural events in the fields of music and art characterize the Millstätter Jahreskreis. Above all, the music weeks Millstatt u.a. with the guitar festival in early August, the summer evenings on the lake but also the feast of the Nockalm Quintet.
Lake Millstatt looks back on at least 6000 years old settlement tradition. The traces of early civilizations, medieval rulers and powerful churches are numerous. Today Lake Millstatt is primarily a Mecca of music and contemporary art but also home to hundreds of "trees in the shell".
Relics from days gone by
Both Celts and Romans made their tracks around Lake Millstatt. Remains from the earliest settlement epoch in Seeboden and graves, Gewandnadeln (fibulae) as well as various other characteristic utensils also prove the settlement by the Celtic tribe of "Ambidravi" (residents on both sides of the Drau). Hikers still encounter the so-called "Schalensteine" today. These are man-made, cup-like depressions in rocky areas. The exact purpose of this
Shell stones could not yet be clearly determined, but they are assigned to the Romans.
At that time, the area around Lake Millstatt belonged to the closer surroundings of the city Teurnia (today's St. Peter in wood, community Lendorf).
The castle Sommeregg is rich in history: Thanks to its sunny location, the castle built around 1080 remained the seat of the Ortenburg for centuries. It was destroyed by Hungarian troops in the 15th century and carefully restored in modern times.
Today, a restaurant in the castle invites you to the Knight's Feast, and right next door you can visit one of the most extensive torture museums in Europe. During the annual jousting in August, the guests of the castle Sommeregg travel directly to the Middle Ages.
Legendary and particularly noteworthy are the so-called "Hadian Leit", which is said to have lived thousands of years ago in the mountains above Seeboden. Some names and locations on the Seeboden Hausberg Tschiernock are reminiscent of these giant figures. These include, for example, the Hadnbod'n or the pagan cemetery, on which hikers pass the Millstätter See Höhensteig on their tour.
The crystals of Lake Millstatt
Fishing is season from April to October. The competition will be in September when fishermen from all over Europe fish for the largest reefs, pikes or perches and from the lake. Guests should be there live, when the best "Fischerlatein" is talked shop.
The fishing museum in Seeboden Bay offers insights into the life of fishing. Incidentally, this museum is located in the oldest surviving Seeboden wooden house and tells the story of fishing as well as the diversity of fish in the Carinthian waters.
Gardens to the shore of the lake
The parks in Seeboden, the Klingerpark as well as the Rosenpark, Klauberpark and Blumenpark are all the way to the water. They are not only places of rest, but also starting points for a boat trip on the lake or a hike. Just below the castle Sommeregg spreads a very special garden. Hundreds of bonsai can be visited here.
DÖDRIACH / RADENTHEIN
The Radentheiner as well as the Döbriacher are proud of their work, their diligence, their constant ingenuity. Turning rocks into an experience world like the Granatium; Storytellers to build their own house, the Sagamundo; to make an internationally renowned, acclaimed, excellent restaurant out of a workers' tavern; from the landmark of the township, the grenades, to create a delicately melting raspberry-brandy-chocolate praline - many reasons to be proud.
Ideal starting point for hiking and cycling tours
Located at 580 meters above sea level, the lake village of Döbriach and the garnet town of Radenthein, which is only a few kilometers away, form the entrance gate to the Nockberge Biosphere Reserve. Among the special theme trails in the area include u.a. the "Kneipp hiking trail" on the Mirnock or the mill hiking trail in Kaning.
On foot or by bicycle, a tour on the Millstätter See cycle path (about 28 km), which boasts numerous box seats and marvelous views of the lake, is worthwhile.
Legends and stories ....
In the center of Döbriach is the nationally known "Sagamundo - house of storytelling" in which legends are presented in a multimedia way.
Tip: For large and small guests in the summer months legend walks are offered in the footsteps of the Mirnock giant.
The climbing gardens Breitwand and Jungfernsprung (directly on Lake Millstatt) make the hearts of climbing enthusiasts beat faster. During the summer months, a taster climbing course is offered at Jungfernsprung by a state-certified climbing guide. The climbing guide "Felsberührungen", which contains interesting facts about climbing around Lake Millstatt, can be purchased at the tourist office Döbriach.
The Garnet - Flint of Love
The grenade adventure world in the garland town of Radenthein recalls the times when gems were once recovered and brought to light on the Laufenberg. After Bohemia this was brought to the grinding and came back as so-called "Bohemian Garnet" back to Radenthein. The grenade stone in the adjoining gourmet restaurant "Metzgerwirt", where garnet pralines and garnet ham are served, was visually modeled and interpreted in culinary terms. Also, the grenade beer, which is brewed in the private brewery Shilling not far from Radenthein, you should definitely try. And another culinary tip: on the Radenthein city market, regional products are on sale on Fridays.
Through the Langalmtal
In addition to the garnet stone Radenthein is also known for the magnesite mining. The world's largest magnesite producer ÖAMAG settled in the 20th century and brought Radenthein to international fame. Since 1966, the open pit has been closed, only the mining of the ore underground is still limited in operation. The "guarded stone" - a multi-faceted ruby red cube in front of a stone curtain at the entrance to the garnet reminds of the treasures that the mountain holds.
In Kaning is the Heimatmuseum Türkhaus - the entrance to the family-friendly mill and Kneipp trail. If you widen the hike, you come to the Langalmtal at the foot of the Nockberge. Six managed huts invite hikers to stop here.
SPITALL AT THE DRAU
Spittal is the point of intersection. In Spittal you meet each other. For culture, commerce, traffic, history and business. Around the castle Porcia. In the park and the weekly market, every Thursday brings the environment in the district capital on the Drava. For choir singing and art exhibitions. When shopping and at balls, at the street theater or in the tavern.
The castle as a cultural stage
The comedy plays in the castle Porcia form one of the established highlights of the Carinthian cultural summer and offer for more than 55 years the opportunity to enjoy themselves in the small historic city in style. The commedia dell 'arte figure "Pulcinella" has become the symbol of the comedy city of Spittal.
In addition to the comedy plays, the International Choir Competition in the arcade court of the Renaissance Palace Porcia is also an important part of the Carinthian Cultural Summer. Furthermore, the castle also houses the Museum of Folk Culture with an impressive walk-in aerial view of Carinthia, the "Carinthian Panorama".
Shopping & More
Shopping has a long tradition in the Upper Carinthian district town. Today Spittal presents itself with over 70,000 m² of shopping space, with elegant boutiques and small shops as an attraction for people who appreciate the shopping pleasure in a southern ambience.
The variety and density of the shops, the cafes, pubs and restaurants make the city stroll between fashion, trends and cuisine a varied experience.
A special shopping and enjoyment highlight is the candlelight shopping in Spittal. Twice a year, the shops in the city center are opened until 22:00 on balmy summer evenings. Spittal innkeepers spoil the visitors in the car-free shopping zone with culinary delights.
Urban center of Upper Carinthia, the town likes to call itself. In a nutshell, the locals call it, conveniently arranged. They are proud of the local products and specialties, the many cultural events and artists' associations that make them possible with their enthusiasm and their personal commitment every year.
You can also feel this personal as a visitor. And you quickly become part of playing the audience and getting carried away by the enthusiasm of everyone involved.
