"... dreaming at the foot of dark forests, peaceful villages on a sunny lake..." (line from the Salzburg state anthem)

Within barely an hour’s drive of St. Michael, you will find a wide variety of attractive excursion destinations which you simply have to visit. Culture and history, monuments and memorials, mountains and lakes, villages and cities, all united harmoniously in Salzburg province.

So close to the city of Mozart

There is definitely no shortage of excursion destinations in Lungau, while Salzburger Land is home to countless other locations and attractions you simply must see, practically all of which are less than one hour’s drive from St. Michael: the World of Ice Giants in Werfen, for example, or the Grossglockner High Alpine Road. A day trip to Salzburg, the city of Mozart and home of the world-famous festival is likewise a must!

Lakes and Lifestyle

Velden and Wörthersee – guaranteed to be household names for all lovers of lakes and lifestyle. Where trends are made, styles are modeled and the modern lifestyle pulsates – without losing any of that sincere brand of Carinthian-style hospitality! Chic boutiques invite you to enjoy extraordinary shopping experiences, while street-side cafés and restaurants are the “icing on the cake”. The Who’s Who don’t just gather for special events, but especially in and around Casino Velden.Party animals celebrate on the “Fun Mile” in front of the casino as well as in the stylish bars and pubs.

The other Carinthian lakes are also quick and easy to reach from Lungau via the autobahn. A nice change of pace from the mountains: Stroll along the lake promenades, take a ride on a pedal boat, enjoy coffee and ice cream in a cozy café: Carinthia always puts on its most appealing face for guests.

The lake closest to Lungau is Millstättersee. Though also the Ossiachersee, Faakersee and Klopeiner See promise a rewarding day (or days) bathing at the lake.
