A special highlight for all runners is between Weißenstein, Villach and Wernberg. On a length of 21.1 kilometres, a marathon course along the river Drau is precisely measured. After every kilometre, whether running downstream or upstream, signs on the Draumarathon route show the distance run. Some of the route is asphalted, here in summer inline skaters share the route with the runners and the rest consists of paved natural ground. The exact measurement of the course also allows foreigners a safe orientation and ambitious runners can complete controlled speed training in kilometre intervals.

Author’s recommendation

If you would like to go a little short, you could also walk from Wernberg to Villach and return from there by boat.
