Hamburg – Villach – Hamburg 2020


Villach near the Slovenian border is the ideal starting point for your Austrian holiday in Carinthia and Styria or for your onward journey to Italy, Slovenia or Croatia.

Villach, only 30 minutes by car west of Lake Wörthersee, is one of the country’s most important motorway junctions with east-west and north-south connections. If you travel to Villach with the Urlaubs-Express, you can arrive in the Slovenian coastal town of Koper in just over two hours after unloading. The Croatian seaside resort of Pula is then only two hours away. But also Carinthia itself has a lot to offer. For hikers and nature lovers, the Hohe Tauern National Park with its mighty Alpine peaks such as Großglockner or Großvenediger offers impressive experiences and unforgettable moments. UEX guests without vehicles can even reach the national park directly and get off at Bad Gastein or Mallnitz-Obervellach. Carinthia is also known for its beautiful lakes such as Wörthersee, Klopeiner See, Millstättersee, Weißensee or Faaker See.
