58 kilometres, 369 metres altitude difference

From the north end of Lake Faaker See, with its spectacular views of the Karawanken mountains and the pyramidal rock cone of the Mittagskogel mountain, the route continues back to the Drautal valley and on to Velden am Wörthersee. On the cycle path on the northern shore of the largest and most well-known lake in Carinthia you pass the lakeside resort of Pörtschach with its pretty villas, palaces and stylish lakeside houses. From the lake promenade in Klagenfurt you cross the provincial capital with its impressive old town. In the afternoon, you will reach the lively village of Sankt Kanzian at Lake Klopeiner See, which is deemed the warmest bathing lake in Europe.
