Casino Velden

Reviewed By IDea1 - Austria

Actually we had a real fun night at the Casino. With the Velden Basic Card which we received for free from our hotel we received a discount on the entry. Actually it was a package of entry plus chips worth € 30 plus one additional chip which you could go for a full number ("Glückschip"), plus a nice glas Prosecco.
I personally preferred it to the Casino in Vienna as it has a bigger main area and a round bar in the middle, where you can watch the different tables from. I even had the feeling that the average age of visitors was lower than in Vienna. As well the dresscode seems not to be as strict (lot of people wearing just jeans).
The drinks at the bar were nice, even all cocktails really good. And not to forget the piano player who was amazing. Just can recommend to go there for a nice evening out ...

Aussichtsturm Pyramidenkogel

Reviewed By Hendrik_NL - Rotterdam, The Netherlands

It was busy at the Pyramidenkogel with coaches and "petjesauto's" (This is a Dutch word for more or less derelict cars with noisy exhaust systems, mostly driven by youthful persons with baseball caps). Later we became aware that is was the annual GTI week was celebrated here. But returning to my review, with clear weather it is always rewarding to go up (by elevator) and enjoy the impressive views over the Worthersee. Free parking, entrance for a fee. Free entrance with the Kärnten Card. By the way, when on the viewing platform it is also spectacular to see approaching coaches negotiate the final hairpin curves to the parking lot.

Schloss & Tierpark Rosegg

Reviewed By Alexandra B - Loughborough, United Kingdom

This attraction is great for young families. It's well sign-posted and is somewhere that youngsters can enjoy the animals and the outdoor play. There are small animals that attract youngsters alongside deer and other larger animals. The outdoor play area is always popular with the children and there's a kiosk where you can purchase food and drink as well as a small gift shop. It's also open most of the year round, so a good place to visit in late autumn too.

Ossiacher See

Reviewed By hansulricha - Gold Canyon, Arizona

You can here again and again and experience the peace and quiet of this little gem. And DON'T forget to go into the church, it is amazingly beautiful. If you have the chance, take in a concert featured during the summer month. It's MAGIC!
Egal wie oft man hierher kommt, man spürt die Ruhe und den Frieden. Auf jeden Fall, sehen Sie sich den Stift Ossiach an, herrlich, fast umbeschreibbar. Im Sommer gibt es dort wunderbare Konzerte, es ist ein Erlebniss.

Bogensportarena Velden

Reviewed By suhhe

Kompetente Einweisung, Leihmaterial (Bogen + Pfeile) erhalten, nach einigen Probeschüssen durften wir auf den 3D Parcours (d.h. Innerhalb eines Waldstückes befinden sich insgesamt 32 Tierattrappen, die man nach unterschiedlichen Schwierigkeitsgraden aus unterschiedlicher Distanz abschießen kann). Festes Schuhwerk ist dringend zu empfehlen. Super nettes Team und toll angelegter Parcours. Man muss aber schon etwas Zeit einplanen (~ 3 Stunden). Uns hat es auf jeden Fall Spaß gemacht! Und danach gibt es im Gasthof Thomann auch noch die Möglichkeit sich gut und günstig zu stärken.

Faaker See Lake

Reviewed By marcopolo111 - Cleveland, Oh

This is a small lake south of Villach in a relatively flat area, not as scenic as other nearby. The water is blue and crystal clear. The major problem is that the entire lake had been cordoned out by commercial activities, hotel and camping and it is not accessible without a fee and there is no way to walk along the shores.

Wallfahrtskirche Maria Worth

Reviewed By Hendrik_NL - Rotterdam, The Netherlands

On the small peninsula, where the village proper Maria Wörth is situated, the main church, the Wallfahrtkirche, is situated on a low hill. Step up through a stone gate up some steps into the churchyard. The churchyard is interesting with "headstones" artistically made of wrought iron. The church itself, inside, is decorated, as most Catholic churches with a splendid altar, a richly appointed pulpit and many priceless images. By the way, Maria Wörth is best visited in spring or autumn. In the summer, this village on the Wörther See is teeming with tourists and parking spaces are then at premium.

In this park, close to Landskron Castle (yes, on the same € 3.50 parking fee; drive to the appropriate parking lot) 140 Japanese macaques are living. Every half hour a tour can be joined with a tour guide explaining about the monkeys and doing some...MoreThank you Hendrik - I am sorry for the Parking fee - but I am not responsible for that - the Castle is the owner of the street...

Gerlitzen-Kanzelbahn

Reviewed By Hendrik_NL - Rotterdam, The Netherlands

This interesting journey starts at the base station at Annenheim (part of Sattendorf), on the shore of Lake Ossiach. Ample parking is provided for; an open parking lot and a multi level car park. Access to the "Gerlitzen Kanzelbahn" is free with the "Kaernten Card", otherwise prepare for approximately € 20.00 a head. The first ride to the middle station is in a closed gondola with perspex windows, which are made rather opaque by sticking advertisements on the outside of the gondola; furthermore, the perspex is rather heavily scratched. Picture taking is only rewarding by leaning out of the window. From the middle station the second ride is spectacular, being in open conveyances, hung from the cable. Don't forget to bring a coat. Arriving at the upper station, the views are stunning. Walking and hiking is rewarding; it is also a choice spot for paragliding. Going down is as spectacular as going up, with the additional prize that we got fortunately into a gondola with comparatively clean windows; so some spectacular pictures of Lake Ossiach could be taken. For catering I advise to bring your own. The cafés and restaurants on the middle station and the upper station are closed or offer unimaginative and relatively expensive "self service" buffet. But, generally speaking, the visit to the "Gerlitzen Kanzelbahn" was a day well spent with lots of unforgettable impressions. See the pictures I attached. To be recommended.
