One of many eye catchers, best enjoyed from the water, is Werzer’s bathhouse, where people already indulged in the bathing culture in the 19th century. The building is a listed monument, is open all year round, and its sauna area, swimming pool and restaurant make it possible to use the lake throughout the year.
Whether you are an ambitious athlete or a connoisseur – everyone can enjoy themselves in and around Pörtschach. Cycling, mountain biking, swimming in the crystal-clear, warm lake or hiking – you can do everything here!

Music lovers should certainly make a note of the Pörtschach Brahms Festival with the international Johannes Brahms competition! Talented young artists from all over the world face their fellow competitors for a whole week.
An insider’ tip in winter is the “silent Advent” in Pörtschach Bay, which ensures thoughtful hours with Advent concerts, theatres, wooden cabins and a path of lights.
