Villach Carnival

A must for every carnival fan and anyone who wants to become one!

In January and February, the Drau town is affectionately known as the “stronghold of fools” by its inhabitants. Why? It’s carnival time and Villach is famous for its “Villacher Fasching”. The carnival sessions, which are highly praised in many places, always take place on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the Congress Center Villach. Afterwards, the court band plays late into the night for dancing. You can easily reach the Congress Center on foot from our hotel. We also offer special carnival packages every year. Please ask at our reception desk.

The absolute highlight of the Villach Carnival takes place at the end, on Carnival Saturday.
The big parade takes place on the Saturday before Shrove Tuesday, with hundreds of masked groups and richly decorated floats cheered on by tens of thousands of masked spectators.
