OSSIACHER SEE - LAKE OSSIACH
The largest lake in the Villach region is Lake Ossiach which is located just north of the Villach city center. The lake is a deep emerald green and has excellent views of the Gerlitzen Mountain and the Ossiach Tauern mountain range. In the summer, the town of Ossiach hosts an international music festival as part of the Carinthischer Sommer. The large lake has a fantastic cycle path that encircles the lake as well as many sports rental facilities nearby. Besides going for a swim, I also enjoy walking around Stift Ossiach which is a beautiful abbey located right next to the lake.
