Bathtub without a bottom
in the Wörthersee

The lake pool at Hotel Schloss Seefels is comparable to a bathtub without a bottom, only much larger: 8 x 12 x 1.5 metres. Imagine this technically complex structure as an enclosure that is open at the bottom. With organic energy heating, the water in this area is heated up to 28 degrees in cooler months. This temperature makes swimming in the Wörthersee possible year-round. In the cooler months, bathrobes are heated to body temperature in a heated box while you swim for a pleasant feeling after a dip in the pool. 

A spectacular sight for guests

Water plants, algae, mussels. The enclosure is a temporary home for water-friendly inhabitants. The lake pool is cleaned every 10 to 14 days. For the maintenance technicians, this is a challenge each time, but for the guests, it is an impressive experience. The structure contains air tanks. These tanks are filled with air and lift the structure to the surface. Then, it is cleaned with high pressure equipment. After 3 to 4 hours, the cleaning is completed, and the structure is sunk back into the lake.  

before breakfast

Mysterious, mystical, fantastic: this is the best way to describe early morning swimming in the heated lake pool. You will feel reborn: refreshed and invigorated. You can then enjoy a leisurely and delicious Schloss breakfast. Of course, a swim in the evening has its own special charm when the sun is reflected in the water and the scenery glistens in warm tones.
