The region surrounding the market town of Sachsenburg provides a wide variety of recreational opportunities. Whether Drau River, the nearby lakes and mountains, cycling paths or scenic villages, all ensure the perfect balance of action and relaxation.

As a gateway to the upper Drau Valley, Sachsenburg is the ideal base to enjoy summer holiday activities – for comfort-seekers, families with children as well as guests looking for active enjoyment.


  • Sports fields
  • Tennis court
  • Heated adventure pool
  • Curling alley
  • Rafting tours on the Drau River
  • Fishing in mountain brooks
  • Castle walks and much more round off the varied leisure program for visitors of all ages

Many sports offerings in the upper Drau Valley (hiking, mountaineering, climbing, golf or paragliding) and two of Carinthia’s most popular swimming lakes (Weißensee and Millstätter See) are all within easy reach.

Heiligenblut at the foot of the Großglockner, the Malta Valley mountains, Hohe Tauern National Park or Nockberge Biosphere Park are equally perfect for family excursions.

Spend a relaxed day strolling around the neighboring shopping and comedy town of Spittal an der Drau (about 15 minutes by car) or Lienz (about 45 minutes by car). Bon vivants like to combine their stay in Sachsenburg with a leisurely day trip to Italy, Slovenia or visit the South Tyrolean Dolomites area.
