Hermagor-Pressegger See, a blend of nature and tradition

The municipality of Hermagor is in Carinthia, close to the border with Italy. It is the economic hub for the Gailtal, Gitschtal and Lesachtal valleys. Hermagor is an important tourist area due to its particular location, welcoming many visitors in both summer and winter. Lake Pressegger See, the Nassfeld/Pramollo ski area, and other special attractions, make Hermagor the top destination in Carinthia in terms of overnight stays. Businesses and artisan industries benefit greatly from tourism in Austria’s smallest district capital, as do all types of industrial and professional services. Agriculture, forestry and mountain pastures also play a very important role. Young, self-employed workers, as well as traditional companies, receive some important economic and political incentives.
