The Millstätter Cycle Trail

Along the waterfront.


Another great way to come into contact with the lake is by circling it on the Lake Millstätter See cycleway: the lake has a circumference of 28 kilometres and presents itself in many facets.

Experienced cyclists could complete this route in two hours – but they would miss just about everything worth seeing along the way. It is really worthwhile to take one’s time.




In many places, it is possible to splash about in the clean lake water or indulge in a soothing bath in the curative moor water of neighbouring Lake Egelsee. This can be of great benefit to the skin and joints. It is also just a few steps from the cycleway to a stone footbridge, against which the gentle waves of Lake Millstätter See roll. Via these rocks, hikers and cyclists can reach a bench in Lake Millstätter See, which anchors only a few metres from the shore.



It is a place of sensuousness and enjoyment of nature, which immediately brings to mind the exclamation “Moment, stay here, you are so beautiful” by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, the poet of poets. Along the way, cyclists will also find two inviting bicycle fun parks in Döbriach and Millstatt. Relaxation at its best can be found on the Lake Millstätter See benches; a comfortable way to cut short the trip around the lake is by making use of the “Peter Pan” lake crossing service.
