Pleasant bike ride from Lake Faak (Faaker See) to Rosegg.  
This bike ride takes you on from Lake Faak (Faaker See) to Rosegg via quiet roads.  From there you take the Drau bike path (Drauradweg) back to Faaker See.  

Author’s recommendation

Shortly after the Ribnik hill you will find the famous "Egger Marterl" (Egger Shrine), an idyllic wayside shrine that is perfect for a photo.

Turn-by-turn directions

This bike ride starts by the big parking lot at the entrance of „Natur-Aktiv-Park.“  From there you follow the “Parcourweg” (obstacle course path) through the forest until you reach a big prairie right before Ledenitzen.  From there the path leads you on quiet side-streets through Unterferlach and Mallentzen until reaching the Drau River.  Follow the path here upstream until getting to Rosegg, where you will get on a path that takes you past the Celtic World in Frög, the zoo in Rosegg, and the castle in Rosegg- all of these attractions are worth a visit!  After a short stop in Rosegg you follow the path to the small village of Emmersdorf, then take the “Drauradweg” (Drau bike path) towards Villach.  Between Wudmath and Föderlach you should make a quick stop at the Föderlach Biotope and enjoy the unique world of plants and animals.  After that you go over the Drau bridge to the other bank and over a fairly steep hill (Ribnik) to “Egg am Faaker See.”  From there it is a pleasant ride back to the starting point. 

Public transport

There is a bus stop about 150 meters from the start of the ride.  

Getting there

Faaker See is best reached with the A2 highway- exit at "Villach-Faaker See."  The starting point of the ride is on the east side of the lake, by the campgrounds.  

Parking

There are plenty of parking spots by the starting point.
