Sports Service

Sports active tourists like to come to Klagenfurt and are in good hands at the SANDWIRTH.

Threesome – Josef Jamek brought sports to the Sandwirth

Sport and exercise are very dear to the heart of the Sandwirth team – even the owners Robert and Helvig Kanduth are PASSIONATE triathletes. The Sandwirth is therefore a perfect hotel for swimmers, cyclists and runners – as well as for all kinds of sports. Klagenfurt is known for major sporting events such as the Ironman, Kärnten läuft (“Carinthia runs”) or the United World Games. Sport plays an important role in Klagenfurt all year round. And so it comes that the provincial capital can provide a sporting infrastructure, which is hard to find elsewhere. It takes endurance athletes such as swimmers, cyclists, runners, triathletes, hikers, trail lovers and inline skaters only minutes to get to the routes as well as to the lake or the indoor pool. But also sports such as golf, tennis, ice hockey or horseback riding, can make you sweat in Klagenfurt. Trend athletes find their fulfillment at the skate park, on the beach volleyball courts or doing Stand Up Paddling. Spacious and modern sports rooms with bike rack furniture, a fitness and gym area, washing service for functional clothes, route suggestions, weekly sports programs, special training camps and sports cuisine make an athlete´s heart beat faster.

Josef Jamek was a passionate swimmer, cyclist and walker. Whenever his time allowed, he cycled along the Lendkanal to his beloved Lake Wörthersee. Often accompanied by his Franzi.


Bike rack furniture in the rooms

Every passionate cyclist´s dream comes true: the bike is allowed in our rooms and can be properly parked on our bike rack furniture there. If you book a sports holiday at our hotel and need a room with a bike rack furniture, please let the reception know when booking your room.
