European Bike Week
The 26th European Bike Week from 3-8 September 2024
Every year at the beginning of September the European Bike Week - probably the most iconic motorcycle and Harley-Davidson gathering in the world - takes place around Faaker See! The motorcycle event attracts hundreds of thousands of Harley riders and fans of the cult brand to Carinthia every year. Both for the guests and the many local spectators, the Faaker See region is the focus of attention for the week. Don’t miss this spectacular event!

In 2023, the European Bike Week celebrated its 25th anniversary. Of course, there was again the Harley Village around the farmers' market area with numerous Harley dealers, exhibitors and a varied live music programme. Even away from the Bike Week centre in Faak, a varied supporting programme, such as "The Lake Rocks" concerts, once again provided entertainment.
The traditional highlight was, as every year, the legendary Harley Parade on Saturday.
All information about the European Bike Week 2023 can be found in the brochure 2023 to download or browse through.

With the Erlebnis CARD you can also discover the most beautiful hiking trails in the region, get to know Villach better on a themed guided tour of the town, or try out other offers such as trial climbing or a wine tasting.
Faaker See, tastier than ever
With the extraordinary culinary diversity of the Alps-Adriatic region right on its doorstep, our border triangle has always been a popular meeting place for gourmets. Building on this, Villach and its surroundings have now established themselves as a special area of enjoyment in the heart of Carinthia, above all thanks to the KÜCHENKULT initiative.
As refreshment stops for the excursions, we would like to draw special attention to the Carinthian Slow Food establishments, which conjure up the highest regional quality on the plates.
