is the historically and culturally most important village on Lake Millstatt. The village is characterised by the Benedictine monastery, the collegiate church with its Romanesque cloister and the old "Habsburg villas". The idyllic and sunny location on a small peninsula in the lake, the mild climate and the surrounding gentle peaks of the Nockberge mountains give this place a southern flair. The soft, dark water of Lake Millstätter See, which is of drinking water quality, attracts swimming enthusiasts in summer. You will find enough space for this at the lido baths in Millstatt, Pesenthein and Dellach.
Moreover, the terraced topography of the municipal area of Millstatt offers ideal conditions for a perfect hiking holiday. The lake - at 600 m above sea level - forms the first level. The second level - at 900 m - is the high plateau with small villages, from where numerous well-signposted hiking trails lead along farms, meadows, streams and waterfalls to the alpine pastures of the Millstätter Alpe - the third level at 2000 m above sea level.
A holiday in Millstatt is rounded off by the numerous musical highlights: from the Millstatt Music Weeks to the Nockisfest and concerts by local choirs.
In terms of art and culture, apart from the many sights, contemporary art in the form of exhibitions or dance performances, as well as workshops and courses, are offered in the Art Space Stift Millstatt, for example.millstART association is presenting this year's exhibition sinNE_Wahrnehmung und Ausnahme from 24 May to 7 October 2022 . Tanja Prušnik is responsible for the curatorial direction.
The diverse recreational opportunities leave nothing to be desired: Water sports, biking, fishing, hiking, tennis, horseback riding, a llama hike, and golf are just a few of the activities offered in the great outdoors.
For culinary enjoyment, there is a wide range of gastronomy on offer. There is a wide choice: freshly caught Reinanken, tasty bistro cuisine, Italian specialities, traditional Austrian cuisine, Carinthian delicacies, a hearty Brettljause in the alpine hut or Buschenschank and much more. Millstatt has been one of the world's first 11 Slow Food Villages since 2019. The regional food culture has a high value and makes Millstatt a place of good living. If you want to buy good, clean and fairly produced food, it is best to visit one of the self-service huts on the sunny plateau.
