Villach is traditionally an historical crossing point and is the ideal location for visiting places of cultural and historical interest, as well as outings into the natural environment with spectacular mountain scenery and crystal clear glacial lakes. Sites of cultural and historical interest over the border in Italy and Slovenia are also accessible, due to the town’s central geographical position.
