Klagenfurt Airport Mini Guide

What can you Tell me About Klagenfurt?
Klagenfurt is a sizeable Austrian city and was the home of the composer Gustav Mahler. It’s found on the shores of Lake Worthersee where each year an international beach volleyball tournament takes place. The city is said to have been founded when land was given to a group of peasants who devised a way to kill a dragon that was terrorising the area. Today, a statue of the creature called the ‘Lindwurm’ stands in the city’s main square. A fascinating place to visit in Klagenfurt is the Minimundus, a model village showcasing miniatures of famous monuments and buildings from around the world.

What can I Expect When I Land at Klagenfurt?
Klagenfurt is a little short on facilities to ease the passage of travellers arriving there. You’ll have to walk from your plane to the terminal but the distance is short. Once inside, get through passport checks if you’re coming from outside Austria and you’ll be ready to collect your luggage once it comes off the reclaim belt. In the arrivals hall you can find out more about the airport’s facilities at the information desk or go straight to pick up your pre-booked hire car from the company desks. If you need cash urgently you’re limited to a single cash machine and no banks or exchange facilities. Public transport is obtained easily enough with a train station at the airport plus several bus routes into Klagenfurt and the surrounding towns.
