Diving in Lake Weissensee

Discover the fascination of diving – from taster sessions to special courses and day-long diving expeditions, there is something for everyone....


Taucherlebnis im Weissensee in KärntenLake Weissensee in Carinthia is definitely among the most stunning diving destinations of the Alps. The visibility range is often as far as 20 metres and there is some dim light even at 50 metres.


The best season for diving is the period between June and October, with September being the ideal month, when the fauna has reached its peak and the water is still warm.
