Information

About Klagenfurt

It is hard to imagine that the region around Klagenfurt, the capital of Carinthia, was once rough marshland. Legend tells of a winged dragon that struck terror into the hearts of the local inhabitants. Its statue is immortalised as the emblem of Klagenfurt. It stands in the middle of Neuer Platz, which is actually anything but new. Most of the lovely old houses around its perimeter date from the 17th century, as does the Town Hall. There are plenty of other cultural attractions: the Cathedral Church, the Church of the Holy Ghost (14th century), the Parish Church on the Pfarrplatz and, north of town, the 9th-century Carolingian Church in St Peter am Bichl. There are also no fewer than 22 castles within a radius of a few miles.
