Hi there e-bike community! Summertime – holiday time! Grab your e-bike and let’ go but where? Let’s head south to Austria’s highest bathing lake: Lake Weissensee – nature’s playground with ideal southern weather conditions and crystal-clear, turquoise blue water!
E-bike paradise Weissensee – lake view guaranteed!
The 12 km long Weissensee has only been built up on the western and eastern shores, there is also no road around the lake. That means, as the crow flies, that 10 km of unspoiled nature, framed by mountains, are available in every direction for wonderful biking. A must for every biker who spends some time at Lake Weissensee is the “Große Seerunde”. Here you circle the lake in the surrounding mountains and have a fantastic view of the azure blue water deep below. One highlight follows the next on this 30 km long tour with almost 1000m altitude difference (fantastic view from the Mühlwand or the bizarre rock walls of the Alemergraben). Don’t forget to spend some time at the lodges with their regional products and enjoy the Carinthian hospitality. Many people forget about the time here.

E-bike & ship – time to chill out!
If you really want to take it easy, then the e-bike/ship trip is the right thing for you. Start from Techendorf and cycle to the Bodenalm, where you should make a stop and enjoy the delicious delicacies of the Alpine dairies. The tour leads past the Tscherniheim (former glassblowing village) to the eastern shore. Here, you board one of the excursion boats of the Weissensee Schifffahrt with your e-bike and sail back to the starting point in Techendorf whilst enjoying the unique view. Total relaxation!
E-bike & ship – a great combination
Downhill trails – let off steam!
But sometimes you also want to have a real blast! Also taken care of and really perfectly. From the Naggler Alm three trails lead downhill. The MTB Weissensee Trail, the Naggl Trail and the Panorama Trail, graded as difficult. Ideal on hot summer days, as the trails lead mostly through the forest. Time and again you can also enjoy the view over the lake. You don’t really want to pedal up the 400m several times to experience the spectacular trails, especially on hot days. The chairlift makes the bike experience perfect. E-bikers are really well looked after here and special transport lifts were installed for the e-bikes. After conquering the almost 400m downhill stretch, there’s a dedicated bike wash waiting for the bike!

Dream bike destination – and much, much more!
Christopher Puntigam, head of tourism at Lake Weissensee, (www.weissensee.com) describes how Lake Weissensee has developed into a leading bike destination in recent years and how the mix of trails, nature and services satisfies every biker’s wishes. A pump track is also planned for 2020.

But there’s even more. If you want to leave your e-bike at home for a day, you can take part in an accompanied canoe tour at the lake to relax. You want some action? No problem with cliff jumping. Under professional guidance, you can leap into the crystal clear lake from a height of up to 18 meters. Boredom is a foreign word here!
