Even the emperor Charles II tasted the Sittersdorfer wine, and the wine has now been gaining its prominence again. Sittersdorf is known for its fly-fishing paradise at the River Vellach. Lake Sonnegger is very popular particularly among families with children because of its beautiful lawn, beach volleyball court, and a children’s playground and waterslide. The Acoustic Lakeside Festival also takes place here. The municipality comprises around 2.021 inhabitants and it extends the area of 44.97 km².
