Today you cycle on a varied route through southern Carinthia, the core area of the Carinthian Slovenes. Here you will find both cultural and scenic diversity, all connected by the Drau, which is particularly multifaceted here.At the beginning, the Drau is very wide because it is dammed up for the generation of electricity. Particularly impressive mountains with impressive rock formations are reflected in the blue-green water. In the further course the Drau Valley becomes narrower again and the forested slopes drop steeply towards the river. That's why you sometimes drive a little further away from the river. The hilly bike paths through the tiny villages are a refreshing change in the idyllic landscape.This stage is also particularly diverse when it comes to river crossings. Sometimes it is a futuristic railway bridge that hovers over the Seidendorfer Au, sometimes it is a weir on the river. Shortly before the end of the stage you cross the Drau on a 100 meter high railway bridge and immediately afterwards the Feistritz on a suspension bridge. To top it all off, drive to the destination in Lavamünd on the city bridge.
