- Amazing view from the castle.
- The whole place is maintained in its original form. You can walk the paths and be in the rooms that once belonged to the ruling family and their subjects.
- Lovely tavern inside the castle's inner courtyard.
- Has a serious Game of Thrones vibe. :)
Could be improved:
- Not much to do inside the castle once you climbed the rock and its 14 gates. Don't expect a historical show or exciting exhibit.
- The lift didn't work when we visited. Plan for an hour-long climb and wear comfortable shoes if you want to reach the top.

The monastery "Stift St.Georgen am Längsee" is located in an elevated position with wonderful view of the lake Längsee. You have, especially in the resaurant a great view especially in the Klagenfurt basin and the Karawanken. The food is great, we had buffet, great selection, very good quality, also the staff is very friendly. The courthouse of the monastery is also beautiful, everything has been carefully renovated. I also found the rooms great, everything in Swiss stone pine - Zirbenholtz, unique I found that the old walls and floors were left, there was even a "small rise" high in the bathroom, such details are unique. But it is all brand new prepared, no muff, no mold, it gorgeous and cautiously to the new standard, the entire decor is from Swiss stone pine, and, if need, also a flat-screen TV and WLAN are there ....

This archeological park documents the lifestyle and architecture of a Roman settlement of almost 2000 years ago. It includes some areas that have been excated, a few restorations to show what the settlement would have looked like and some exhibits of artifacts from the excavations at the site. The exhibits are well-presented, although most explanation is only in German.
The drive up here is one of the interesting parts of the experience. The park is set on the side of a small mountain. Why did the Romans build a town here? I didn't find out that answer to the question. In any case the drive up is scenic, on a small road that is quite winding but safe.
(It's worthwhile afterward continuing the short distance right up to the top of the mountain, to the Gipfelhaus, for an even more spectacular view).
Finding this place using maps would be difficult, but GPS found it very easily using an entry of 'archeological park Magdalensberg'.
While this park was interesting, it's probably not worth a special trip, On the other hand, it's just a short distance away from Burg Hochosterwitz, so if you are going to see the castle anyway this makes a nice addtiional place to visit.
As mentioned, most of the signs are in German only. However, an English guidebook is available in the entrance office. The person on staff there speaks excellent English.

Im auf eine lange Geschichte zurück blickenden Ort Althofen ist das Auer von Welsbach Museum sicher einen Besuch wert! Bewundernd sieht man die verschiedenen Zeugnisse eines Universal-Genies, der nicht nur den Glüh-Strumpf für Gaslaternen erfunden hat, sondern auch botanisch tätig war, die Metall-Glühfaden-Birne entwickelte, 4 Elemente ´entdeckte´, Zündstein-Feuerzeuge entwickelte oder seine Experimentier-Glaskolben u.ä. selber ´geblasen´ hat. Und das alles vermarktete er auch erfolgreich und errichtete z.B. das Werk im nahen Treibach samt (damals) außergewöhnlichem Elektrizitätswerk. Wer von sich selber glaubt, besonders "gut" zu sein, der kann diesen Glauben hier relativieren.

We learned about the Gurk after Reading about it on various websites and if you are touring the region around Klagenfurt, then this is definitely worth a visit. Gurk is set in a beautiful valley, seemingly undisturbed by the outside world. The exterior of the Cathedral and abbey is really nothing special. However, once inside the Cathedral, it is a different world. It is filled with art from the 12th and 13th century and the altar is something to be seen. As one website states: 'The Baroque high altar (1626-38) is a sight to behold, adorned with 72 statues and 82 faces of angels.' We also learned about St. Hemma and her life since she is buried there. The best part of our visit was a short tour ( cost of tour was not expensive at all) we took to see the Bishops' Chapel. It is a hidden gem and is filled with exceptionally well preserved frescoes from the 12th and 13th century. We were with our tour guide who described the entire history of the Cathedral, its link with Salzburg, Hemma and what happened over the ages. It was amazing just to see this chapel alone without any large tour group.

I don't understand why people need to pay 14 eur to drive through the Goldeckstrasse. Is the road not a public one? First, it doesn't look like the area need any kind of maintenance, second, there is no visible investment in security, facilities or whatsoever. A hike on the top of the road should be free, in my opinion.

We traveled an hour to reach the site. Unfortunately, the road to this attraction was closed with no sign for alternative way and with no indication on their web site on that problem. We spend more than an hour to find bypass to reach the site, without success, and it was very frustrating.

When the village of Maria Saal is approached from the south its massive parish church can be seen already from a large distance due to its prominent position on a hilltop. Because of the brownish color of its façade this church may not be very impressive from the outside. Nonetheless, it contains notable reliefs and tombstones. Its interior with its late gothic net and stellar vaults, its very old frescoes and its baroque high altar is a real gem. Visiting the dome of Maria Saal is highly recommended to anybody who travels in the area of Klagenfurt. The nearby open-air museum also merits a visit.
