How about a cool dip?

On days when it’s simply too hot to move, or when you need to cool down after a strenuous hiking or riding trip – there’s nothing like jumping into cool water.

Swimming pleasures can be found in the town of Ferlach, in the bathing lake Badesee Ressnig, known as “Ressnig-Teich” by the locals, and the bathing lake Badesee Ratz in Kirschentheuer. Both are easy to reach, both by car and by bicycle via the Drau Cycle Path. Bathing in Ressnig-Teich is free, though there is a parking fee for cars, motorbikes and bicycles – however, the charge is very moderate. The sunbathing area around the lake is very spacious, so you’ll always find a free spot even on extremely hot days.

The bio bathing pond Bio Badeteich C.E.N.T.R.I.S and the bathing lake Badesee St. Johann lie only a few kilometres further on, in the village of Feistritz; both are also easy to reach, either by car or via the Drau Cycle Path. As well as swimming in an adventure biotope, you can also play tennis, boccia, basket or volleyball in the C.E.N.T.R.I.S, or simply laze about. Sunbathing and swimming on the spacious sunbathing lawn of the bathing lake at St. Johann are very popular. If that isn’t hot enough for you, you can really warm up on the beach volleyball court.

Some of the loveliest Carinthian bathing lakes are only a few kilometres from the Carnica Region Rosental. Those who are looking for action will find exactly what they’re looking for on, for example, the bathing beach Strandbad Schiefling /Auen am Wörthersee, with an area of over 7500 m2 : here, you can surf, water ski, banana riding or explore the lake by pedal boat. The Kneipp water-stepping stream of the bathing lake provides that special wellness factor, and the children’s playground, table tennis and table football guarantee that no one will find it boring.
