Location: Lake Millstätter See is embedded in the mountainscapes of the Nockberge National Park, surrounded by the Millstatt Alps with the Tschiernock, the Goldeck and mystical Mount Mirnock. The terraced topography is typical for Lake Millstätter See: the first terrace - at an altitude of 600 metres - is formed by the lake. The second terrace - at an altitude of 900 metres - is formed by the high plateau stretching from the lake's eastern shore to the western shore. The third terrace is formed by the Millstatt Alps - at an altitude of 2,000 metres.
Climate: the mild climate is due to the above-average amount of sunshine. South winds carry warm Mediterranean air masses to the lake, while the north is mostly protected from rain and clouds by the Tauern Mountains.
