LAKE WOERTHERSEE, AUSTRIA - The 5th annual Pink Lake International Gay Festival will take place August 23-26, 2012 on the beautiful Lake Woerthersee, Austria.

The region of Lake Woerthersee, Austrian State of Carinthia and the chic and glamorous city of Velden again warmly invite the international Gay and Lesbian Community (and friends of the LGBT Community) to an unforgettable experience at Pink Lake 2012.

The ever more popular PINK LAKE festival is now taking place for the 5th time and offers to its visitors the perfect opportunity to experience the gorgoues Lake Wörthersee in high summer.

The chrystal clear, 17 Kilometer and up to 27°C Lake Woerthersee is located in the center of Carinthia, the southernmost state of Austria which is directly adjacent the borders of Italy and Slovenia.

With its picturesque setting, offering historic grand villas, the Casino Velden and the beautiful hotel castle, is the ideal location for the PINK LAKE Festival.
