Experience the Karnerhof

Plenty of room to relax


Our hotel park surroundings: expansive and green.

Unwind - surrounded by nature.

Deep green lawns and meadows. Blooming wildflowers. Aged fruit trees. A giant kitchen spice garden. Our very own pebble beach. A fireplace right next to the lake. The quaint boathouse. Spread over an expansive 10 hectares, the Karnerhof offers you plenty of room for open-air adventures. And yet you’ll still find plenty of hideaways and quiet spots to kick back and relax on your own.


Arrive. Unwind. Breathe easy.

Wellness between mountains and the lake

Relax. Savour a massage. Let your soul unwind, taking in the panorama view. Let yourself be spoiled – in the lake sauna, at the Temple of the Muses Spa or in our wellness area. At the Karnerhof, our fantastic views, wide-ranging wellness offering and our authentic hospitality effortlessly come together to make for a deeply restful and harmonious getaway.


Get outdoors. Move freely.

Be active under the open skies.

Alpine surroundings that beat to nature’s relaxed rhythm, a mild and sun-spoiled climate along with our extensive fitness offering at the Karnerhof all mean you’ll enjoy a wide choice of leisure activities on both land and water. From a relaxed bicycle tour with the whole family to a challenging round of golf, an invigorating jog through the woods or water gymnastics in the outdoor pool.


    Fun and relaxation, on and in the water

    Explore the Faaker See


    Lake Faaker See – a natural gem

    Fantastic swimming lake

    A deep shade of turquoise blue is found on many lakes of Carinthia, but nowhere is this hue more brilliant than on Lake Faaker See. The lake’s crystal clear waters and its dramatic setting, embedded in the rugged panorama of the Karawank Mountains, combine to make the Faaker See one of the most attractive swimming lakes in Carinthia.


    Windsurfing, paddling, diving straight in

    Active on the water

    Smooth pebbles warming the soles of the feet. Crystal clear water lapping between the toes. With water temperatures reaching 27°C, Lake Faaker See exerts a magical attraction. Our own private beach makes for an ideal starting point for a wide range of waterborne adventures: from windsurfing and sailing to pedal-boats and stand-up paddling.


    Even more water to savour

    Pools at the Karnerhof

    With expansive outdoor and indoor pools, the Karnerhof offers a range of alternatives to waterborne fun on the lake. The 26°C heated waters of our half-moon shaped outdoor pool tempt guests to take an outdoor plunge from May through November. Wide panorama windows lend our indoor pool a vista of natural green. Two whirlpools offer you bubbling, invigorating relaxation.
