On the north shore, where the lake is at its most beautiful, a small peninsula pushes into the lake, to the left and right bordered by the traditional seaside resort of Pörtschach.

The unique colour of the lake conveys a feeling of well-being even from the shore. Along the flower promenade at the Promenadenbad, the wooded headland, the Capuchin Island in front of the “Landspitz” and the flower island, accessible via a bridge, round off the unique ambience.
