Partners & Friends
Friends will be friends ...
Yeah, yeah ... it's true, we stole this heading and from Queen and the legendary Freddie Mercury no less – may he rest in peace. But there’s no need to say more, is there? We like having partners, collaborators, friends, comrades-in-arms, colleagues, neighbours and so on ... and look forward to working with them. Here we go ...
Right in the middle of it rather than just standing on the sidelines
When these men and women of steel come to fight for the title each year, we are always right in the thick of it. A 3.8km swim, 180km cycle and a 42km run await the participants of the Ironman Austria. On the day itself, the routes for each part come right past the hotel and we love that!
Running: Kärnten Läuft
Running with a lakeside view
The half marathon route runs directly along the banks of Lake Wörthersee from Velden to Klagenfurt. Up to our front door at Metnitzstrand beach. So we are the ideal starting point in Carinthia for your running adventure.
Football in Carinthia
The biggest sports event of the year? That’s right ... the Superbowl. We’re also joining in the celebrations and throwing the biggest Superbowl Party in Carinthia with 300 excited fans, entertainment and good food. Want to be part of it? Just book your boarding pass with us and come join the party.
Tourism & Regions
Events: Kärnten Convention
Business as unusual
Boardroom with a view – “view included” is the motto for events in Carinthia. Since we place a lot of value on our meetings and events, we are a member of Kärnten Convention and therefore have a strong partner on our side to actively support us and our guests.
Marketing: Kärnten Werbung
Excursions to the beyond
The advertising company Kärnten Werbung is the partner who helps us with global marketing and so we take part in a variety of projects that aim to make Carinthia and our region more well-known.
Tourism partner on the eastern side
Regionality is very important to us so we also try, alongside Klagenfurt Tourism, to market the beauties of our region. Because we have the city behind us and the lake in our view.
Lake Wörthersee Tourism
Tourism partner on the western side
We work together with Wörthersee Tourism to market the regional highlights and bring them closer to future guests. Because although we have the city behind us, our view is over the lake.
Culture & Events
Music: Starnacht am Wörthersee
Always there live
When the stars of the pop scene are giving it their best at Lake Wörthersee, we are also a part of the package
as accommodation provider and collaboration partner of ip media. And we love it!
Comedy: Kabarettherbst and Kabarettfrühling
In our opinion, people need to laugh every now and then. So we’ve been working with the cabaret festivals Kabarettherbst and Kabarettfrühling for years – and activating your stomach muscles in the process. Discounted tickets, dinner and cabaret – there’s something very special in store for guests.
Murder Mystery: Krimidinner
Thrilling catered murder mystery evenings
From time to time we devote our Laguna restaurant to a murder mystery evening. Delicate multi-course menus and thrilling dramatics await guests on the murder mystery evenings.
Theatre: Stadttheater Klagenfurt
Clear the stage
A little culture in the meantime? The Stadttheater Klagenfurt theatre puts on exciting productions with alternating subjects. Located right in the middle of the city, it offers the perfect way to see out an evening.
Theatre: Theatersommer Klagenfurt
Theatre under the open sky
Carinthia’s most unusual open-air theatre takes place each summer in Klagenfurt’s old town. Guests can expect a new production each year and we have discounted tickets too. So no holding back!
Entertainment in Carinthia
There is always something happening in Carinthia and a big part of this is thanks to Semtainment. They are always diligently organising events and we are glad to be a part of this – there is always have a new production for us to look forward to.
Concerts: Wörthersee Stadium – Sportpark Klagenfurt
Events in the vicinity
The region's biggest stadium is really close to the hotel. Bon Jovi, Ed Sheeran, Andrea Berg and Robbie Williams – they have all played there and many more will follow in their footsteps to Klagenfurt! Our guests are able to walk to the stadium.
Move & Relax
Pain relief: Schmerzfreistützpunkt
In the Move & Relax area
Pain has the widest range of causes and leads to a reduction in the quality of life. We have a pain-free support centre (Schmerzfreistützpunkt) here inside the hotel which specialises in exactly this area. So that movement is enjoyable once more.
Exercise classes: Volkshochschule Kärnten
Training for body and spirit
Always moving, whether mentally or physically. That’s why we work with Carinthia’s community college, VHS Kärnten, to offer a variety of different courses on site which vary by season. These get both the locals and our guests moving.
The Coach - Fitness
Sometimes we need some more intensive training – and that’s when we enjoy working together with the pros from The Coach Gym in Klagenfurt to offer courses on site in the hotel.
Miniature world: Minimundus
Die kleine Welt am Wörthersee
Who manages to travel the world? Hardly anyone ... but opposite the hotel there is Die kleine Welt am Wörthersee, with miniatures of the world's most famous tourist attractions.
The best view
A visit to the highest mountain in Carinthia, the Pyramidenkogel, involves going up up up. A wonderful view awaits you at the top, panning out over the Carinthian lake landscape and our region. Always worth a visit!
Boat Trips: Wörthersee Schifffahrt
Discover the lake
You can see the lake from the hotel. But those who want to see it up close should buy a ticket for the Wörthersee Schifffahrt boat trip and explore the places around the lake in this way – highly recommended!
Pletzer Group: one big hotel family
A Tirolean family business
As a part of the Pletzer Group, we are a family business that has made its mark on the tourism, industrial and real estate sectors.
For today's heroes
Sometimes it's time for a glass of wine ... and where could you do this more stylishly than in the GIG Bar? There's one right here in the hotel and also one in Velden on Lake Wörthersee ... it's worth the little excursion.
Catering: Feine Küche Kulterer – Schloss Maria Loretto
Catering for Gourmets
The Schloss Maria Loretto is also a part of us – only it’s not us doing the cooking but rather Feine Küche Kulterer who are looking after the happiness of the guests. From corporate events to dream weddings
University of Klagenfurt
Knowledge centre within walking distance
Study. Further education, guest lectures, events and much more are on offer at the University of Klagenfurt and as this often requires a hotel room, we take care of that part, so that the guests can concentrate on the important bit.
Carinthia is part of the Alpine Adriatic region and cross-border excursions are a great option for incentive events. Who can claim to manage 3 countries in one day? The neighbouring countries of Italy and Slovenia are easy to reach and offer a multitude of possibilities.
Outdoor swimming pools Klagenfurt
A dive into cool water.
What could be more pleasant in summer than a dive into Lake Wörthersee? Three options await our guests in Klagenfurt: Strandbad Klagenfurt, Bad Maria Loretto or Strandbad Maiernigg. All really close by and with special terms and conditions.
