Fortunately, we have a lot of space in the hotel and on the hotel complex and are able to carry out the recommended regulations for the somewhat limited initial period. Being out and about in and over the lake are wonderful moments for relaxing hours. The whole of Southern Carinthia also offers a lot of freedom on excursions in the mountains, through forests, on hiking trails, on running routes and on bike paths.

If you have any further questions, we are always there for you, preferably by e-mail to

We look forward to your visit and remain with best regards from the already very sunny and green southern Carinthia and with best wishes for happy summer days,

Your Amerika-Holzer team
