Pool complex (indoor and outdoor) in 4-star Hotel Karnerhof on the Faaker See in Carinthia

Splishing, splashing, diving and swimming: the crystal clear waters of the Faaker See are a swimmer’s dream. The Karnerhof’s extensive indoor and outdoor pool and water complex offers a range of attractive swimming alternatives to the scenic lake.

Outdoor pools: swimming with a panoramic view

The location: simply idyllic, crowning a gentle rise between the hotel and the lake, wrapped in green meadows with a scenic view over the beach, the Faaker See and the Karawank mountain range. With a 26°C water temperature, our 240 sq. metre half-moon shaped outdoor pool tempts guests to take the plunge outdoors from May through November. Lounge chairs and elegant swing loungers perch at the pool’s edge. Enjoy the invigorating, bubbling waters of the giant 32°C whirlpool under open skies.

Indoor pools: sheltered but still close to nature

Indoor swimming and bathing at the Karnerhof: bright, friendly and flooded with daylight. Massive panorama windows open up a vista of green. A small brook gently splashes its way through the lush plant life. The large whirlpool spoils guests of all ages with its steaming waters that are heated to 32°C. Practice your laps in the lanes of the 28°C indoor pool. In the summertime, this is also where children enjoy swimming lessons.

For me, taking care of the Karnerhof Beach is by far the best job in the hotel. I wouldn’t want to switch with anyone! Even when things are busy, you just take one look out at the lake, and (almost) all cares disappear. I’m a big fan of swimming in the lake myself, but in the mornings, a lot of our guests prefer to use the pool and whirlpool.
