From the silence of the forest to the jubilant excitement of major sporting events, from splashing your feet in a lake filled with the purest water imaginable to the bustling activity of the marketplace, and from the chink of glasses raised in welcome to boisterous laughter that comes straight from the heart: Klagenfurt, the city of Ingeborg Bachmann and Robert Musil, is a place to experience the essence of joie de vivre, in every manifestation, in all aspects of life, in its boundless diversity.
Cheer and Celebrate
Klagenfurt’s Wörthersee Stadium isn’t the only venue here for major sporting events. In summer, Ironman Austria takes triathletes from around the world through the entire city, while the atmosphere of the Beach Volleyball Grand Slam tournament raises the excitement amongst competitors as well as fans on the stands to a whole new level. In late summer, Klagenfurt is the site for the finish line of the Carinthia Runs half-marathon, with a course that takes racers along the Wörthersee shoreline.
