Today you go through the Upper Drautal via Sachsenburg to the town of Spittal / Drau, whose most famous building, the Renaissance castle Porcia, is worth a visit. Enterprising cyclists can optionally take a detour to Lake Millstatt, which is only 11 kilometers away by bike. Always along the Drau it finally goes on almost to the gates of Villach, to Paternion.

Today you cycle on the banks of the Drau through the vibrant city of Villach. Make a stop in the city center and treat yourself to a cafe on the main square. Shortly afterwards, the small Silbersee invites you to take a refreshing bathing break. The route continues through the scenic rose valley in the Carnica Biene region to the gunsmith town of Ferlach. There an adventure museum was dedicated to the busy bees, which is worth a visit.

Today, the Drau Cycle Path takes you through the lower, unspoilt Rosental Valley on causeways directly on the river bank. For your lunch break, we recommend a detour to Lake Klopeiner See, the warmest bathing lake in Europe. Take a relaxing bath before you pass the large Völkermarkt reservoir for the final sprint to Lavamünd on the Slovenian border.
