Not the warmest, not the biggest, not the smallest but still authentic. Don't forget to visit the Gerlitzen Alp, there is a possibility left when you enter the valley from Villach.

Spent a few hot hours at St. Andrä Gemeindebad, where we could swim and sunbath for free. A beautiful spot just a few kilometres away from Villach!
