From the stargazer to the animal lover and the museum enthusiast: Carinthia offers numerous leisure activities for every taste. It is a pleasure for us to inform you about popular surrounding destinations and recreational offerings.

Pyramidenkogel

Since the 1960s, the Panoramic Tower on the 851-meter high Pyramidenkogel has been a popular destination for young and old. Due to its unique position, it allows you an overwhelming sight over Carinthia’s charming mountains, lakes and valleys. The sight ranges from the Karawanken to the Hohen Tauern.

Affenberg

An unforgettable experience for all animal lovers! At Monkey Mountain, you have the unique opportunity to observe monkeys in a free-roaming environment. There are no glass panes or cages to separate you from the animals. During an exciting 45-minute tour, you will learn everything about our 103 happy monkeys. Our swimming monkeys are a special attraction. The Japanese Macaques have two ponds where they dive for food, cool down on hot days or simply play. With your visit, you are supporting our project of making it possible to observe animals in a free-roaming environment.

Gustav Mahler Komponierhäuschen

The greatest late-Romantic/early-Modernist composer needed the peace of nature to inspire his genius. He found the most ideal place in Klagenfurt - at Maiernigg on Lake Wörthersee, where he had his “Komponierhäuschen” built in 1900. This is where Mahler composed some of his most important works. Until 1907, Mahler completed his fourth symphony at his “Komponierhäuschen” and fully composed his fifth, sixth and seventh. Visitors get a wonderful insight into the life and work of this great composer, conductor, opera director, and reformer of musical theatre.
