The so-called Wörthersee architecture shaped the appearance of the cultural landscape around the Wörthersee between the opening of the then private Southern Railway and the “Anschluss of Austria” from 1864 to 1938. Castles, villas, boathouses and bathhouses around the lake have been built in the so-called “Wörthersee style”. Examples can be found in Pörtschach, Velden, Krumpendorf, Klagenfurt and on the southern shore of the lake.

Friedrich Achleitner describes the so-called Wörthersee architecture, in a text about one of its best-known representatives, as a mix between Art Nouveau and regional romanticism, Baroque and English country house architecture. It thus represents the regional expression of the historicist home style in the Carinthian lake district, and has peculiarities that distinguish it from the summer resort architecture, for example in the Semmring area or the Salzkammergut (Salzkammergut style).

“Not only one of the first, but undoubtedly one of Baumgartner‘s best buildings in Carinthia. Art Nouveau and regional romanticism, baroque and English country house architecture led to an incredibly variable architectural vocabulary that could be used in every situation, whether for small or large objects, in the range between comfort and representation, between public demands and private seclusion. Here, Baumgartner created a set of instruments for the so-called Wörthersee architecture that could satisfy all the demands placed on upscale recreational architecture.”
