Around the Millstätter Lake

Bikeway around Lake Millstättersee for pleasure cyclists

Trained cyclists need only two hours for the distance of 28 km - but at the same time miss everything this new bike trail is about. The bikeway around Lake Millstättersee is a journey of all senses: seeing, touching, smelling, hearing and tasting. Those who take their time will be amply rewarded. Those who realise that the 28 km of cycling may be too much have the chance to take the bicycle ferry for parts of the distance.
