The village of Pörtschach is located on the northern shore of the Lake Wörther See.

The first findings date from the Romean times. There was a main road through Pörtschach from Velden to Krumpendorf. Around the year 600 Slavonians came and created a village. Todays name could come from that time period. The Slavonian name of the village was "Porecah" and this means "People who live next to the brook".

Around 1490 the Castle Leonstain was built very close to the centre of Pörtschach. Nowadays there is a hotel in the Castle.

The touristic boom of the village started with the first "Sommerfrischler" in the 19th century. Especially when the shipping began on the Lake Wörther See in the year 1853, the tourists came more and more.
