The Lavant (Slovene: Labotnica) is a left tributary of the Drau in the Austrian state of Carinthia. It originates in the small Lavantsee at the southern slope of the Zirbitzkogel mountain in Styria, then turns southeastwards and after 7 miles reaches the border to Carinthia. The river flows through the towns of Bad Sankt Leonhard im Lavanttal, Wolfsberg and Sankt Andrä until it reaches the Drava shortly before it crosses the border to Slovenia.
