On the slow trail to the forest lake

From the ship pier in Velden we go through the town with the villas from the Wörthersee architecture period to the French Church. The path through the Roman gorge to the forest lake begins here. We go through beautiful mixed forest to the “Hohes Kreuz” viewing point. Here we enjoy a wonderful view over Velden, Lake Wörthersee and the Karawanken and Julian Alps. We continue to the forest lake, which is ideal for swimming in the summer months. Past the small lake we go back through the Roman gorge to Velden. The difference in altitude is approx. 250 m and the walking time is approx. 2.5 hours.
