Starting in Annenheim you ride towards "Landskron" on the south side of "Ossiacher See." With a beautiful view of the lake, you ride through the towns of Heiligen Gestade, Ostriach, Ossiach and Alt-Ossiach.  After going through the Bleistätter Moor (Bleistatt Swamp), you come to the north side of the lake and ride through the towns of Steindorf, Bodensdorf, Sattendorf, and back to the starting point in Annenheim.  During the route you will pass several regional attractions along the lake.  For example, there is a brilliant stone house in Steindorf, the Ossiach Abbey, the summer tobogganing run in Ossiach, and the Annenheim gondola.  

Author’s recommendation

The gorgeous "Stift Ossiach" (Ossiach Abbey) lies at the halfway point of the route and is highly recommended for a visit.  The Ossiacher See ferry is also always worthwhile, with several docks around the lake where you can hop on.  Fun for both old and young is the spectacular "Sommerrodelbahn" (summer toboggan run) in Ossiacch! And of course the Gerlitzen Alps are recommended the whole year round for the whole family!
