European Bike Week
6-11 September 2022
"European Bike Week" will again take place at Lake Faak this summer, from 6-11 September 2022. As probably the most iconic motorcycle and Harley-Davidson meeting in the world, this event attracts hundreds of thousands of Harley riders and fans of the cult brand to Carinthia every year. At center stage for the week is the Lake Faak region, both for the out-of-town visitors as well as the numerous local spectators. Don't miss this spectacular event!

The holiday region Villach - Faaker See - Ossiacher See
Pure pleasure and adventure combined in the heart of Carinthia, our holiday region is a true natural paradise. Lakes, mountains, fantastic landscapes, and idyllic places are awaiting you here. The beautiful natural environment and the mild climate on the south side of the Alps guarantee a great variety of freedom on two wheels, especially in late summer. All around the hot spot of Lake Faak, high alpine panoramic roads and winding mountain passes make for extraordinary bike tours. In between, gentle hills, shady woodlands, and roads along the lakes invite you to enjoy a leisurely cruise. As one of Austria's traditionally most popular holiday regions, Villach and its surrounding area also offer countless attractions for exciting excursions. Food-lovers, especially, will be well rewarded if they take a break from riding now and then - the delicious food of the Alps-Adriatic region, as well as its warm hospitality, will make the outings a true pleasure.
Faaker See, tastier than ever
With the outstanding culinary diversity of the Alps-Adriatic region right on our doorstep, our tri-border region has always been a popular meeting point for epicures. Building onto this through the KÜCHENKULT and HÜTTENKULT initiatives, Villach and the surrounding region have established themselves as a region of culinary delights in the heart of Carinthia.
In this tradition, and with more than 20 years of real experience with #BikerFood, local eateries are dry-aging their meats and starting up their smokers and wood-fired ovens for hungry guests. Many establishments in the region have again this year come up with special culinary offers for September.
We would especially like to mention the Carinthian Slow Food restaurants as refreshment stops for your rides, as they put together the meals with the very highest regional quality.
