    The Lendkanal connects the city Klagenfurt with the Wörthersee. It was built in the 16th century and is about 4 kilometers long. The cycle path leads here over a wooden bridge, the Lorettosteg, over the Lendkanal.

    Relaxed cycling from downtown Klagenfurt along the Lend Canal to Lake Wörthersee.

    The picturesque 4-kilometer waterway has been connecting Klagenfurt city center with Lake Wörthersee since 1527. It was created by the estates to provide building materials, wood and stone, for the expansion of the city.
    The Lend Canal once served to supply the city with building and heating material and also fed the 34 meter wide and 7 meter deep city moat with water. The Wörthersee fishermen brought their catch to the Klagenfurt market via this traffic route. The canal ends in the Lendhafen. The surrounding walls, stairs and access ramps are made of Pörtschach marble.
    From the Lend Canal you have an atmospheric view of the many villas along the waterway. There is also an idyllic walking and cycling path along the Lend, on which inline skaters also do their laps. And in winter the old waterway is an ice rink up to the Wörthersee.

    quite a short trip (by the way, that's called LEND CHANNEL). you could cross over to the Wörthersee, at the wagon buffet, on the other side, cross the street and the sattnitz back to the city.
