Practical tips for planning a trip to Carinthia

Carinthia, with its diverse travel destinations, attracts slow travelers and leisure travelers alike. But before you set off, let's take a look together at what you should know.


Carinthia is well connected. Use trains and buses for stress-free trips as they will take you to most places. A rental car is practical for remote treasures, which gives you flexibility.

Weather conditions:

Carinthia shows itself from different sides depending on the season. In summer you enjoy warm days that are ideal for lakes and hikes. So pack sunscreen. Winter is perfect for skiers, with warm clothing being a must. In spring and autumn you experience nature in transition, and layered clothing is therefore recommended.

Packing tips:

In addition to clothing for the weather, also think about comfortable shoes, which are important for exploring the city and hiking. Don't forget your camera to capture the moments, and a reusable water bottle will help you stay sustainable.

Other useful tips:

Be sure to find out about the opening times of attractions in advance so that you don't miss anything. A local prepaid SIM card keeps you connected, and sampling local food and drink is an essential part of your trip.
