Klagenfurt Mini Guide

Known in full as Klagenfurt am Worthersee, Klagenfurt is the capital of a state in the south of Austria and it is divided into 15 different districts. This capital of Carinthia is the sixth largest city in the whole of Austria and has almost 100,000 inhabitants. Dotted around the city are some impressive buildings including Klagenfurt city hall which has an eye catching red roof and white facade. One of the most admirable sights is a statue of a winged dragon in a fountain. This dragon was apparently slain when Klagenfurt was founded. 

Klagenfurt City Hall

The city preceded to have a troubled history in which it was ravaged by fire and disease before being sacked in a peasant's war.  At the beginning of the 19th century Napoleon destroyed the city walls and the main Klagenfurt train station was wiped out in World War II. Klagenfurt is a beautiful part of Austria and is situated on the Lake Worthersee and the River Glan making for many picturesque settings. There are many different suggestions for where the name Klagenfurt comes from which means 'ford of complaints' or 'ford of lament'.
