Light views in Millstatt am See

back to overview

Looking for a glimpse of light that goes to the heart? At Lake Millstätter See in Carinthia, you can experience unique light shows and a soulful story during Advent. Find inspiration during a walk on the "Millstätter Lichtweg im Advent". A "hike" from place of longing to place of SEE(h)nsuchts - with the one big goal: to perhaps find yourself in the end. Thanks to the audio guide, the musical story can be experienced by families around the clock. Simply scan the QR code and immerse yourself in the magical fairytale world via headphones. The path is lined with illuminated trees and artistically staged light installations that radiate warmth and security. They illuminate the entrance portals to the venerable inner courtyard of Millstatt Abbey, where a Christmas surprise awaits the little ones: the talking fairy tree. Come by and listen attentively as the 750-year-old linden tree tells its fantastic story. The pre-Christmas silence on the lake can be enjoyed romantically on a wintry boat trip on Saturdays and Sundays. Take time to make a wish: At Strandbad Millstatt, you can set your own wishing boat on the emerald green of Lake Millstatt every day. On the sails you write your personal Advent message, which is carried out on the water accompanied by glowing candles. Thus, the lake turns into a sea of lights and peaceful wishes. 

Of course, the smell of Christmas baking, cinnamon and orange punch may not be missing. "Light torches" point the way to the open catering establishments. With warming drinks and pre-Christmas gourmet treats, the magic of the Christmas season that we remember from childhood revives here. Experience moments of encounter and sensual lake touches® on Lake Millstätter See. The jewel in Carinthia.
