European Bike Week honors its reputation as the legendary "wild" Harley-Davidson.

Only with Harley-Davidson you celebrate like this: Five days and nights, 100,000 people are in Faak in Carinthia at the grand final of the European motorcycle season.

European Bike Week continues to set the benchmark for Harley-Davidson events at Harley Village, which extends to bars, stages and numerous retailers from across Europe about 40,000 square feet at the lakefront.

"Every year, for over 26 years, from May to September, on every Thursday from 18:00 until 22:00, thousands of visitors come to the Faaker See farmers market. It is one of the favorite tourist attraction in Finkenstein."


Via Ferrata Rotschitza Gorge

The starting point is the Baumgartnerhof. At the waterfall starts 354 m long via ferrata (klettersteig). With a vertical drop of 120 meters and the difficulty B / C's are in the gorge this is a bit of a thrill (for children over 12 years!). The highlights are the Postams-walks, with amazing views of Lake Faak (from a height of nearly 6 feet above the water). The return road is the footpaht Route 683. Climbing Equipment!


Faaker See Run

International Faakerseelauf. Last year about 1,100 running enthusiasts athletes from 13 nations participated in children and youth competitions, Panorama Running, Half Marathon and a health run with Nordic Walking competition. Maybe this year, the organizer can register a new record.

Bis 2013



Waldseilgarten - Hoch hinauf

Was ist ein Waldseilgarten?

In einem natürlich gewachsenen Wald, werden zwischen Bäumen in Höhen von 2-20 Metern, Stahlseile, Wackelbrücken und Netze
gespannt. Für die Besucher erschliesst sich der Wald aus einer völlig anderen Perspektive. Du wirst geniale Ausblicke geniessen, überraschende Herausforderungen meistern, interessante Momente erleben und vor allem viel Spass haben.
