Foodie tour in the Karawanks

This scenic tour takes you from Lake Faak into the Karawanks, with beautiful views, and some of the best places to eat along the way – a paradise for foodies! We recommend to stop at one or more of these restaurants:

  • Kirchenwirt in Finkenstein: “One of the best, if not the best place to eat steak in Carinthia!”
  • Burgruine Finkenstein: “Great atmosphere with one of the best views of Lake Faaker See, great cuisine”
  • Baumgartnerhof: Country inn just like in a picture book, from the service to the kitchen”. This would be a small detour from the tour, but it’s worth it! Nice views over Lake Faak from the terrace.
  • Martinihof: “Fresh, regional cuisine, great outdoor area in beautiful nature.”
  • Buschenschenke Ischnig-Hof: Great snack. Delicious cider, unique view of the Mittagskogel”. Ein An insider tip, somewhat hidden, turn right at the Martinihof! Open from 1 p.m. (closed on Mondays).
