Holiday Resort Town

Velden is a town located by the Wörthersee (Wörther Lake), which is an alpine lake in the southern Austrian province of Carinthia. Velden is an exclusive holiday resort for the local austrians.

Schloss Velden

The Schloss Velden, a lakeside Renaissance castle, was turned into a top hotel in the 19th century. It is currently closed (no reason given).

Summer Holiday Destination

I visited Velden in summer and it is a beautiful area for some relaxation time-off and fun. Tourist boats are available to bring tourists around the lake. There are many sail boats circling the tranquil waters of the lake.

I believe Velden is not well-known amongst the international tourists, because I didn't see many around while I was there. And that was still summer then. However, I didn't mind because the lake and the town are beautiful and less crowded.
