This paper takes a look into the past, being by way of a first step, as it were »dipping a toe in the cold water«, creating a few waves and then taking us up to the present day, with some ideas for the future of »bathing in the Drava«. We associate various things with the word »bathing«: washing and hygiene, recreation and leisure, sport and fitness. All these things were once possible in the river Drava (Drau) and certainly could be again, at least in certain selected locations. In Carinthia too, the »land of 1,000 lakes« – and not just in Carinthia – bathing in the river would be a meaningful and attractive addition to existing tourism facilities, and need not be regarded as being in competition with them.
