The name of the city of Villach often used when dealing with travel by train or car passing from the Austrian border to advance towards the old Eastern Europe. Villach is located in the south of Austria, near the border with Slovenia and along the route of the major roads leading to Graz and Ljubljana. But according to reports of the Press, Villach is not only an important hub for transport but also a pleasant place in which to spend a little of your time during the winter.
Villach is surrounded by mountains and many lakes. Location with welcoming atmosphere, only an hour’s drive from Udine and is ideally located in Carinthia, the southernmost of the nine Austrian provinces. Winter in Villach is like a fairy tale with lots of sunny hours and slopes with guaranteed snow that accompany skiers during the descent.
Especially lovers of skiing will appreciate this as they can climb on 60 km of slopes of the Alpe Gerlitzen (perfect for skiing and snowboarding) and 13 slopes and 35 kilometers of the “Stella Ronda“. On Alpengarten there are 5 kilometers of trails for skiing and Mount Dreiländereck which marks the border of three countries (Austria, Italy and Slovenia). You can ski at an altitude of 1506 meters. After a lot of sport, a gourmet meal is called for. This is why there are shelters such as Gipfelhaus where you can taste typical local dishes surrounded by a breathtaking landscape and the Ravensburger Hütte, where you can enjoy a typical lunch, warm up with a cup of tea or be groped by delicious desserts.
Finally, a valid bug report for spring and summer camping Ossiach, overlooking Lake Ossiach, covers 5 hectares and is open for tourism snow. But in the summer is even better, with the lake at your fingertips and the mountains to cool the air.
