At the end of the day, sports fans can take a bathing trip to the nearby turquoise-green Faaker See or take a lap around Ossiacher See.

Excursion to Lake Faak, approx. 20-30 km - departure

Depending on the time and desire, we suggest a bike excursion to the nearby turquoise-green Faaker See in the morning. The small lake impresses with its wonderful water quality and attracts swimming in the summer months. For sporty bike freaks, a trip around the Ossiacher See (approx. 40 km) is a recommended option. Then individual journey home or return transfer by train to Mallnitz.
