Villach is a picturesque town and the gateway to Carinthia, a popular travel destination near the Austrian Alps. Arranging car hire from Sixt in Villach gives you all the freedom you need to explore this natural paradise. Having your own wheels will allow to drive along the Alpine Road, a scenic 13-mile route that winds its way up to the Dobratch, a 7,000-feet mountain that is perfect for hiking and birdwatching. Alternatively, you can drive to the imposing Landskron Castle for panoramic views of the town and the mountains beyond. Rent a car and head off on other recommended road trips, such as the Faakersee lake (reputedly the cleanest lake in Europe and perfect for swimming) or the Maibacherl hot springs, where you can relax and unwind after a day of driving. Here at Sixt we look forward to helping you make the most of your stay in the region with reliable car hire in Villach.
