Spittal an der Drau - The Town

The town of Spittal an der Drau is often used by visitors as a gateway to Lake Millstätter See, which lies only four kilometres east of the town. Spittal is also a tourist centre that serves the entire lake region - however, this should not keep you from having a closer look at the town itself before you head for the swimming, windsurfing and other water-sports.

Schloss Porcia

Austria′s most elaborate Renaissance castle is right inside the town: The centrally located Schloss Porcia Castle was built be the Spanish noble-man Gabriel of Salamanca, who served as a treasurer to the Habsburgs in the 15th century. A very wealthy man, he bought an entire county and got Italian craftsman to erect a presentable castle right in the middle of it.

Spittal an der Drau District

Beyond the city limits, the big attraction is Spittal′s scenic surroundings, best explored from the local mountain Goldeck. The 2142-metre-high summit can be attacked by hiking all the way up, or alternatively through the use of a cable-car in combination with a chair lift.

With an area of the district is 2,763.99 km², it is Austria's second largest district by area, it is even larger than the Austrian state of Vorarlberg, and by far the largest district in Carinthia.

Together with the neighbouring districts of Hermagor and Feldkirchen, Spittal forms the Upper Carinthia (Oberkärnten) region. It borders on East Tyrol in the west and the Austrian state of Salzburg in the north.

The mountainous area comprises the southern ranges of the Hohe Tauern and the western Gurktal Alps (Nock Mountains), as well as the broad Drava Valley and the northern slopes of the Gailtal Alps. The highest point is the peak of the Grossglockner, at 3,798 metres (12,461 ft). The district also includes Millstätter See and Weissensee, two of the major Carinthian lakes.
