A WEEKEND AT THE MILLSTATT AM SEE  LAKE IN AUSTRIA | THE BEST PLACE FOR TREK AND RELAX

A WEEKEND AT THE MILLSTATT AM SEE LAKE IN AUSTRIA | THE BEST PLACE FOR TREK AND RELAX

Sunbathing, hiking, lunch in the shelters, kayaking, boat rides, bike paths that line the lake, many baths in the lake and more.

Here’s what to do during a holiday on Lake Millstatt am See in Austria.

 

WHERE

 

Simon had heard about Lake Millstatt just 40 minutes from Villach long ago. At the end of May there was the opportunity to do 2 days out of town and we took the chance to visit this area of Austria and to do some good hiking in the mountains.

We booked the 4-star hotel Am See – Die Forelle which is right in the middle of the lake in the town of Millstatt. The Hotel is a mix. The dining rooms are in classic style while the terrace overlooking the lake and the dehor are modern and welcoming. Many of the rooms, the swimming pool, the garden and the breakfast room are overlooking the calm waters of the Millstatter see.

PET-FRIENDLY HOLIDAYS

We opted for the room on the lower floor with the largest terrace overlooking the lake, in this way our dog Giorgino had more space to roam especially while we were having breakfast (because the dogs are not allowed in the breakfast room – Sadness).

Apart from this the only problems (but classics throughout Austria) is that the restaurant closed at 20.00 – no way: O – and that there was never a barman at the bar and to drink a beer you had to look for the staff.

 

But otherwise everything is super.

Incredible breakfast of sweet and savory that you can also eat outdoors, pretty SPA and also the swimming pool not bad. In addition, the hotel is located right in the center and to go out for dinner just take a walk.
