Your beach holiday

by Lake Klopein

Tried and tested. As you know: Carinthia is the land of lakes. The most pleasurable, warmest and most exciting lake is Lake Klopein. 1.8 kilometres long, 800 metres wide. Characterised by picturesque beauty, far beyond the concerns of everyday life, nestled into the unique natural scenery of the mountains. And of course, with drinking water quality.

Lakeside longing. What awaits you? For starters, there’s the velvety soft lake water, which gently caresses your skin with its pleasant warmth. In summer, you can delight in the sun’s rays as you bathe at up to an incredible 28 degrees.

Sonne See-Bad lake bathing area. The sea of colourful umbrellas adds to the holiday spirit as you slowly switch to relaxation mode. Pick your favourite spot on the well-groomed sunbathing lawn or on one of the bathing piers and enjoy the view of the lake. The piers – spacious, dotted with palm trees, made of natural wood and equipped with plenty of comfortable places to lie down. With us, the recipe for relaxation is very simple: Apply sunscreen, spread out your beach towel and put your feet up. 

Lakeside fitness. Bringing movement to your beach holiday. Because here at the Hotel & Spa Sonne, swimming, boating, canoeing or kayaking, fishing, stand-up paddle boarding and, on request, diving with one of our partners are the order of the day. Our tip: join in with the Sonne lakeside fitness programme, free to participate.

Lakefront promenade. Circle the whole of Lake Klopein! Carinthia’s only uninterrupted lakeside promenade invites you to enjoy a leisurely 5.2 kilometres: of strolling, wandering, sauntering, meandering and soaking up the views. The walk starts directly from our hotel.

Escapade to Klagenfurt

A taste of city air

Craving a little city air? No problem! It’s just 25 kilometres to our provincial capital of Klagenfurt. Golf fans also get their money’s worth with us: the beautiful 18-hole course is a short two-and-a-half kilometres from the hotel. For that perfect tee shot. Tennis courts? Four private hotel courts await you. And of course plenty of fun water activities. After all, you are at Austria’s warmest bathing lake.

Allow us to be there for you. To cater to you. To spoil you.
