Millstätter See planned a bike ride.
August 5, 2019
On this approximately 17-kilometer tour, double sea enjoyment awaits you: First, you cycle with magnificent views of the water along the southern shore of Lake Millstatt, then you make a detour to a very special natural gem: the protected Egelsee. To fully enjoy the beautiful scenery, you should plan two to three hours for this tour.The idyllic Moorsee is embedded in the untouched nature between Millstätter See and Drautal. A bath in the 25 degrees warm bog water is not only totally soothing, but it is also attributed health-promoting effect. Above all, a break at the Egelsee is simply an amazingly relaxing experience of nature. The lake is surrounded by a swinging rocking lawn and you can discover unique plants such as the flowering rosemary heath or the carnivorous sundew. A detour to the nearby Kneipp hiking trail has a particularly beneficial effect.The Egelsee is of course the highlight of this tour, which is also totally beautiful beyond. Quiet roads, easy dirt roads and a few trails alternate and are perfect as a beginner's route for experienced bikers. If you get hungry in between, a stop in the cozy village of St. Wolfgang, where you can enjoy some refreshments.
