Carinthia consists mostly of the Klagenfurt basin and the mountain ranges of Upper Carinthia. The Carnic Alps and the Karawanken make up the border to the Italian region Friuli-Venezia Giulia and Slovenia. The Hohe Tauern mountain range with mount Grossglockner (3,798 m) divides it from the northern state of Salzburg. To the east beyond the Packsattel mountain pass is the state of Styria (Steiermark). The main river is the Drau, it makes up a continuous valley with East Tyrol to the west. Tributaries to the Drau are the Gurk, the Lavant and the Gail. Carinthia's lakes including Worther See, Millstatter See, Ossiacher See and Faaker See are a major tourist attraction. Find property for sale in Burgenland.

Carinthia has a continental climate, with hot and moderately wet summers and long harsh winters. In recent decades winters have been exceptionally arid. The average amount of sunshine hours is the highest in Austria. In autumn and winter temperature inversion often dominates the climate, characterized by air stillness, a dense fog covering the frosty valleys and trapping pollution to form smog, while mild sunny weather is recorded higher up in the foothills and mountains.
