The historic heart of Carinthia can look back across thousands of years of cultural history. A host of sights and attractions, and of villages and places to visit will give your imagination free rein to dwell upon times long past. This awareness of history combines with a willingness to embrace the applied technologies of the future, which make such good sense for our Region. So at the very centre of things there remains a fascinating tension between tradition and innovation.
From a geographical point of view Central Carinthia is located between the Saualm mountain pasture in the East and the Nockberge mountains to the Northwest. It is a characteristically rural Region, with a few small towns and municipalities. Apart from the beauty and variety of nature, Central Carinthia offers its guests an opportunity to get to know the rich cultural heritage and history of this land. The museums and castles bear witness to that history; pilgrimage trails and hiking paths encourage reflection and contemplation and the numerous villages and bathing lakes offer a chance to unwind.
Central Carinthia narrates its own history – but Central Carinthia is also making history!
