Klagenfurt City Guide
According to legend, the area was haunted by a special kind of
dragon, a 'lindwurm'. Brave man killed it - and Klagenfurt was founded.
Main sights are a huge statue of the 'lindwurm' at the centre of
'Neuer Platz', Klagenfurt's major square which also houses its city
hall. 'Landhaus' is the seat of the Carinthian parliament
and features an impressive hall adorned with ancient coats of arms.
Klagenfurt cathedral is a spectacular building and was redecorated
according to baroque style. More simple, but baroque none-the-less
is the city's parish church with a tower as highly visible landmark.
'Minimundus', too, is a major attraction: a collection of
famous buildings from all over the world (Eiffel tower, Taj Mahal,
St. Peter's cathedral,..) have been rebuilt on a much smaller scale.
Lake 'Wörthersee' and city are interconnected by an
artificial rivulet: 'Lendkanal'.
