It is located south of Villach and the Drava river at the northern slope of the Karawanken mountain range. The settlements of Drobollach and Egg on the northern shore belong to the City of Villach. The village of Faak in the southwest, after which the lake is named, is part of the Finkenstein municipality.
In 1855, the Faaker Lake inspired the Slovene composer and priest Franc Treiber to compose the song Nmav čez izaro ("Over the Lake"), which soon became one of the most famous Slovene folk songs, and it's considered to these days the unofficial anthem of Carinthian Slovenes.
