Spring break in Carinthia

The enchanting schloss

Nestled within the idyllic landscape of the village of Velden and situated on the shore of Carinthia’s warmest lake, the Capella Schloss Velden is undoubtedly the top address in the high-end luxury category of hotels in Austria.

With its unique blend of traditional and modern elements, the simplicity of nature and the comforts of luxury, there is a perfect balance between avant-garde and the traditional Lake Worthersee architecture.

The province of Carinthia, with its 1,200-plus lakes, historic castles, churches and cathedrals, is called Austria’s Monte Carlo.  Bike riding, mountain biking, hiking, waterskiing, sailing, windsurfing, swimming, mountain climbing and entertainment at the Casino Velden are just some of the many activities on offer.

The shopping area of Villach is only 20 minutes away and the romantic city of Venice, beautiful Salzburg, Munich or Vienna can all be reached in two to three hours by car.

Guests can unwind at the Auriga Spa, which was recently crowned ‘Best Destination Spa’ in Europe with its 15 treatment rooms, indoor pool, spa café, steam sauna, snow grotto and interactive golf simulator.

Visitors can enjoy a relaxing dinner at the superb gourmet restaurant, Schlosstern, which was awarded two Michelin stars and three Gault-Milau Bonnets and the luxurious beach club, with its exclusive cabanas and the ‘inside the lake’ swimming pool completes the Schloss Velden for the ideal vacation.
