Lake Millstättersee with its surroundings is one of Carinthia’s most beautiful and culturally appealing areas. The unique natural environment still invests the area around the lake with the charm and magic of times past. In addition to a historically and culturally interesting past, Millstatt boasts an exciting range of architecture, from Romanesque structures to state-of-the-art contemporary designs by Coop Himme(l)blau or Hans Hollein. Numerous fin-de-siècle villas are tokens of a time when Millstatt was one of Austria’s most fashionable spas. Together with the neighbouring town of Spittal an der Drau, Millstatt offers a many-faceted cultural programme. In recent years, the renaissance-period Porcia palace in Spittal has made a name for itself as an international art venue focusing particularly on contemporary and avant-garde developments.
