Villach Travel Guide: 78 reviews and 244 photos

I spent a two-weeks' holiday near Villach in the summer of 2000, and I have fond memories of the warm, welcoming attitude of people towards tourists. Not only in Villach but in the whole region of Carinthia.

Villach is just 30 Km from the Italian border and much nearer to Venice than to Vienna. It lies in the valley of the river Drau, surrounded by impressive mountains.
It is an important crossroad for motorways and railway lines. However, it is not just a place to pass by, on the contrary, it is the heart of a region with great holiday opportunities.

    I’ve never seen a falconry demonstration like that. Sounds fascinating!
