Velden am Wörthersee Travel Guide: 28 reviews and 68 photos

We are doing day tours out from our base of Velden, so please join me as we explore this part of Austria, along some roads not so frequented by Tourists.

Velden is an upmarket area in Carinthia, Austria.

It is located beside the Lake, has lots of nice buildings, parks, Outdoor Cafes and shops.

We used it as our base, and found it very convenient.

We really enjoyed our time in this area of Austria.

We are now going for a drive to

    Love the scenery around here (especially with those low clouds in some of your photos) and your hotel looks a wonderful find!

      Thanks Ingrid! We loved this area and our accommodation, we really didn't want to leave. It's no wonder people come back year after year.

      I could easily come back here and stay at the same Pension, and enjoy more of this beautiful area. It was wonderful! A pity the Mountains were in fog, otherwise we would have gone up more.

    I agree that it is important to do one's homework before buying one of those tourist cards, as they are often not worth the price unless you go to several museums a day. I did that once in Bonn (Germany) with a Bonn Card, because it was a dreadfully slushy winter weekend so there wasn't much to do besides go to museums. (And the museums were very good, I must say.)
