Lindwurmbrunnen

Reviewed By Aljoša O - Slovenia

This statue is located in the centre of the ciity (on the square where Christmas market takes place). We thought that it was nothing special, its average sized and not at all interesting. But as it is located it the centre, you should take a look at it.

Landhaus

Reviewed By Pamela H - Oxford, United Kingdom

We visited the building,during our holiday after taking the very smooth train form Portschach We were very impressed by all of the historic interior of the building including the magnificent Heraldic Hall and the Parliament chamber.
We had quite a few questions regarding the history and use of the building and the lady on the desk was very knowlegeable and was very happy to enlighten us about the German and the English occupation of the building during and after W.W,2 Very well worth a visit

Very nice and clean after renovation. It may not be enough toilets and too many shops for the Young. Much to do, that the more prestigious stores Will be in centre.

Europapark

Reviewed By joja j - Bratislava, Slovakia

We stopped at Europapark on our way to Slovenia. You can find a nice playground for kids, small and bigger as well. It is next to Worthersee, so it is place with perfect views.
We had two scooters and if you take some with you, you must definitely use it there.

Worthersee Mandl

Reviewed By Rad1945 - Ferlach, Austria

An old cast bronze statue which is said to symbolize the original flooding of the Wörthersee (Lake Woerther). The little man is quoted as having called down a flood to punish those who had lost their way and wandered from the true path of God.
The barrel beside him is the water outflow of the Fountain. The man's head is polished by the action of the hands from the hundreds of people who touch it for good luck each day. After polishing his head once more the visitor can enjoy a coffee and cake at any one of the restaurants and coffee shops near by.

A big square, the biggest and most cenral in Klagenfurt, home of the famed Lindwurm Fountain and the Rathaus... Interesting building as architecture all around. The best hotel in the city is on the square. Cafés and places to eat. Limited & expensive parking.

Strandbad Klagenfurt

Reviewed By Bosty007 - Slovenia

Great infrastructure to fulfil all wishes: enjoy the soft grass under the trees or sunbathing on the piers. Easy access to the water for all, more adventurous can jump into the water from piers, there is also a slide and number of water activities nearby. Kids can play in the shadow on the beach (made specially for them). Even when crowded (during the weekends), it is plenty of space and you can find a silent spot for yourself. Admission is reasonable (4,8 EUR/day for adult), with quite some options (2 hour ticket, afternoon ticket, evening ticket...). Water is very clean.

Stadtpfarrkirche St. Egid

Reviewed By Hendrik_NL - Rotterdam, The Netherlands

The "Stadtpfarrkirche St Egyd" is the oldest church in Klagenfurt. The church hails from the 13th century; inside the church a stone with text can easily be found which refers to the 15th century. St Egyd is rebuilt in the 17th century after it was damaged in an earthquake. Inside the church several treasures can be found; at least the pulpit is worth a photo. Outside the church seems a bit plain and angular, but St Egyd is definitively worth a visit.

I've been to zoo a few times and it is always nice family experience. Rare opportunity to see so many reptiles (I love cute small colorful frogs, and my daughter favorite are giant turtles)l Some might enjoy feeding time of crocodiles...
