It goes without saying that the most beautiful day spa in Carinthia is our very own turquoise-shimmering star among the lakes: Lake Wörthersee. Enjoy summer temperatures of around 25 degrees Celsius from June to September while you relax and unwind. But sometimes we need a little something extra: more heat, more pampering, more glamour. And here is a handy selection of day spas in Carinthia for just that purpose: get pampered, relax – and simply treat yourself to something special.
Seepark Wörthersee Resort
What sets this place apart is its proximity to the university. Fancy a massage between lectures? Sure, no problem. It’s just a few steps from the university to the Seepark Wörthersee Resort and the shores of Lake Wörthersee. In the compact but exquisite wellness area, you can indulge your body and soul and then head straight to the terrace of the trendy GIG bar for a relaxing drink. The Seepark Wörthersee Resort offers the perfect university-life balance. Here you can fully relax and unwind. The 900-square-metre wellness area comes equipped with steam bath, sauna and mist grotto, along with a gym and relaxation areas – and offers all you need to treat yourself.
Werzer’s Lakeside Bath House
Originally built in 1895, the bath house is a particularly lovely example of Lake Wörthersee architecture. Constructed close to the lake, it has been fully refurbished and is a listed building. The view of the lake alone, extending all the way to the mountains in the south, conjures up pure holiday feelings: A Caribbean atmosphere combined with mountain scenery – where else can you find that?! That’s why the historic bath house is a truly exceptional destination for a “day off”. The highlight is the outdoor pool, which is heated all year round and is set in the lake itself. The various lakeside saunas come with direct access to the water and you can not only soak up the sun on the sunbathing lawn, but also dangle your feet in the cooling wasters of the lake.
Bath House Carinthia at Lake Millstättersee
The bath house at Lake Millstättersee reveals completely different perspectives. Lake Millstättersee is somewhat “off the beaten track” from Klagenfurt, but it’s worth the trip, especially on a cold, grey November day. The bath house is built in a modern architectural style and is located on the shore of Lake Millstättersee in the heart of the Nockberge mountains. This makes it ideal for a short detour after a demanding day’s skiing, to soak up some warmth before heading home. A variety of saunas offer wonderful opportunities to work up a good sweat. The infinity outdoor pool gives you the impression of floating in Lake Millstättersee itself.
This hotel on the mountain pass Turracher Höhe truly has it all, even for day guests. A dizzying choice of over 70 massages and treatments is enough to make your head spin. If this leaves you feeling overwhelmed, you can restore yourself with a tea ceremony in the Chinese tower or let yourself be pampered in the oriental hamam without a second thought. Oooohmmm, everything goes! If you get tired of being lazy, you can swim in the 25 metre pool (inset in the Lake Turracher See) all year round – even in the winter! The wellness area measures over 5000 square metres – a single day isn’t nearly enough to explore it all.
Feuerberg Mountain Resort
Take the time to rise above yourself. At the Feuerberg Mountain Resort on the Gerlitzen mountain at an altitude of around 1,800 metres, it’s really quite straightforward. Who might expect a spa like this on top of a mountain? Even the approach to the resort is stunning: You wind your way up over numerous hairpin bends – and at some point you can simply leave it all behind you. Exams? Irrelevant. Fog in Klagenfurt? Viewed from above, it’s just a fluffy cloud under a bright blue sky. The spa itself is stunning: the number of saunas and relaxation rooms is quite staggering. The absolute highlight, however, is the infinity pool above the sea of clouds – it is surely one of the most beautiful in the world.
