Bathing area blocked – anger over barriers and bans on Faaker See


The sandbar in the area of ​​the confluence of Wourunitza with the Carinthian Faaker See is now a popular seaside resort for locals and holidaymakers. However, the area has recently been cordoned off with barrier tape and prohibition signs.

Several signs indicate that it is forbidden to enter the sandbank. Only a small area, marked with the sign “Steilufer” and not suitable for children and non-swimmers, is accessible. “Do you really want to scare people out of here?” asks a bather in a letter to the “Krone”.

The measures are mainly intended to protect the fish and frogs on the sandbank. However, critics question whether these measures make sense, as precipitation and storms regularly wash gravel from the Wourunitza confluence to Lake Faaker.

Deadly swimming accident four years ago
The marking of the steep bank goes back to a fatal swimming accident in 2018. At that time, a boy died in this area (the “Krone” reported). The cold water flowing in from the Wourunitzabach can pose a danger to children or inexperienced swimmers. The resulting attraction should not be underestimated either.
