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.
People often refer to Carinthia’s provincial capital as the “Renaissance Jewel on the Wörthersee”. Around 500 years ago, Italian architects created much of the city we know today, including palais, inner courtyards and beautiful plazas. Klagenfurt lovingly nurtures its past: One reason a jury of international experts awarded the city the coveted Europa Nostra Diploma on three separate occasions for its exemplary efforts to preserve the historical district.
