St Lorenzen im Gitschtal is a small village and farming community about a 5 minute drive out of Hermagor in the direction of Weißbriach. It is a lovely rural area surrounded by mountains and close to the Weissensee National Park. The Weißsensee can be reached by footpaths over the mountains from St Lorenzen (if you are fit!).
Hermagor, our home town, is the county town and administrative centre for the central Gailtal and the 30 villages surrounding it. It is a small town but has plenty of supermarkets, shops and restaurants. The famous Semmelrock Konditerei, reputedly one of the best in Austria and where everyone meets for coffee and cakes or a light lunch, lies in the central square, the Gasserplatz. Most Saturday mornings there is a Farmers' Market offering local produce including Gailtaler Speck (bacon), cheeses and honey, the produce for which the area is deservedly famous.
The Presseggersee lies to the east of the town and the fabulous Nassfeld Ski Arena is only a few minutes away by car. The area offers endless opportunities for both summer and winter activities with many kilometers of dedicated trails for walking, cycling, horse riding and golf at the Gailtal Golf Club. Visit the golf club website: www.gailtalgolf.eu for full information about the facilities on offer.
The area has good road and rail links. The railway runs the full length of the Gailtal valley and offers regular services to Villach from where there are trains to the rest of Europe.
Klagenfurt airport is about a 45 minute drive away with flights to Vienna, Berlin, Hamburg and Köln and it is only about a 1 hour and 15 minute drive to Ljubljana airport in Slovenia with flights from Luton (Wizz) and Stansted (easyJet). Salzburg Airport is about a 2 hour drive.
The Weissensee is one of the exquisitely beautiful Carinthian lakes. At 1000m above sea level, this is Carinthia's highest lake. With a temperature of around 24°C, the clear and clean water is refreshing even on the hottest of days, has fantastic visibility and plenty of fish.
As two thirds of the lakeshores are protected by conservation laws, the area offers great scenic beauty. Ideal for those in search of a peaceful break, as well as for families with young children. Exceptional walking and cycling trails.
In summer the lake offers tremendous water sport facilities and in winter, when the lake freezes, the surface is groomed to prepare a magnificent skating area. Horse-drawn sleigh rides are also offered. Crosscountry skiing is available and downhill skiing is catered for in the family ski area. The Nassfeld Ski Arena is only a short drive away.
Sports Facilities: windsurfing, crazy banana, tubing, water-skiing, parasailing, fishing, skating, skiing, cycling, hiking.
