On your walking adventure you’ll pass Schloss Velden “The Castle at lake Wöerth” which originally opened in 1892 providing exquisite resort hotels. Over the century the palace earned ‘legendary status’ amongst other European hotels and has now been restored to its former glory. The Schloss Velden has welcomed travellers by extending a modern wing and reopening as a 5star luxury property.
Pyramidenkogel is an 851-meter-high mountain located to the south of Wörthersee and near the town of Maria Wörth. Here in 2013 the reconstruction of a viewing tower was opened where at 67-meter-tall, is the highest wooden viewing tower in the world.
