MORNING: Start your day in Carinthia’s capital Klagenfurt, strolling through the city center with its various shops and coffee bars in the pedestrian area. Leave Klagenfurt to visit the famous Lake Wörthersee. Take a boat to Maria Wörth, one of the famous villages on Lake Wörthersee situated on a peninsula. The two churches dominate the peninsula with marvellous Romanesque art heritage.

LUNCH: After going back to the shore near Klagenfurt by boat, enjoy your lunch at the Restaurant Maria Loretto. It is a great place directly situated by Lake Wörthersee with a nice view of the lake.

AFTERNOON: After lunch, travel to Millstatt and visit Millstatt Abbey with its marvellous church and the museum with numerous pieces from medieval times and the Romanesque. Afterwards, walk down to Lake Millstätter See to have a drink at KAP 4613, a bar floating on the lake. Alternatively, you can take a boat trip on Lake Millstätter See and a short walk on the trail of the pilgrim Domitian. In the evening you should have dinner at one of the partners of the “Reinanken Wirte” cooperative, serving delicious fish they catch in Lake Millstätter See every day.

EVENING: Before going back to Klagenfurt, you might want to have a short stop in St. Veit an der Glan, a town with a very well preserved city wall and a nice small city center with historic buildings.
