Klagenfurt - The Town

Klagenfurt, the capital city of Carinthia, has been defined as “the city of leisure and culture” of southern Austria. Ideally located on Lake Wörthersee, one of Europe’s largest and warmest Alpine lakes. Situated on the southern (sunny) side of the Alps, it has a Mediterranean climate – early, mild springs - long, satisfying summers – multicolored, vibrant autumns and sunny (although cold) winters.

In the center of the newer part (newer part – read 15th century) of Klagenfurt is the Neuer Platz, home to the city's most famous landmark, the massive Dragon Fountain (Lindwurmbrunnen). The legend was born after 1335 when the dragon’s skull was found in a nearby quarry.

Legend has it the city was built on a swamp inhabited by the dragon who was said to devour cattle and virgins. – Yes, a hero was found to vanquish the dragon. Since then, the Lindwurm (Dragon) became heraldic emblem of Klagenfurt.

Unfortunately, science has a habit of interfering with legend. In the 1800s zoologists realized that the Lindwurm head actually belonged to an Ice Age woolly rhinoceros. The woolly rhino’s skull is still on display at the State Museum of Carinthia (Landesmuseum für Kärnten) in Klagenfurt.

….. and there was Beer!

Klagenfurt (town) boasts its own first class brewery.

Schleppe Brauerei: The Felsenkeller

Schleppe Brauerei: The Felsenkeller

Schleppe Brauerei / Felsenkeller

With over 400 years of history, the Schleppe brewery has a long brewing tradition. Since 1607 Schleppe beer has been brewed outside the city gates of Klagenfurt. The "Schleppe" estate is mentioned for the first time as a brewery in a tithing register of the Tultschnig parish from 1607. The beer that was brewed there at the time was - according to Carinthian custom - a stein beer. Even back then, the Steinbier was the number one popular drink and on everyone's lips.

Today the brewery is well within the city limits.

The brewery restaurant of the Schleppe Brewery, better known as Felsenkeller, offers beer culture at the highest level. Right next to the Schleppe brewery, the Schleppe Felsenkeller is one of the most traditional restaurants in Klagenfurt. The Schleppe Felsenkeller, claims to have a clear commitment to fresh and predominantly regional products.

Brewery tours daily during the summer months - Monday to Friday at 10.30 a.m.! There are no tours on public holidays - tours for groups of 20 or more people are possible – by appointment - all.

Hiking, Biking & Fishing near Klagenfurt

Klagenfurt and Klagenfurt Land is an excellent spot to explore some of Carinthia's most scenic spots. The lakes Wörthersee, Keutschacher See and the Ferlacher Stausee (an 11 kilometer long and 500 meter wide reservoir – a great fishing destination) are great for all sorts of water-related sports and activities.

Angling on the Drau

Angling on the Drau

Drau fishing area - Ferlach Reservoir

The entire Ferlach reservoir is managed by the Hollenburg forest administration. A large number of different fish species live in the approximately 11 km long arificial lake.

The uppermost area of this area can actually still be referred to as the flow section, gradually the reservoir slows into a more calmly flowing area. In the lower area of the dam, the river flow is regulated by high dams. The reservoir is over 500 meters wide here and the current is extremely low.

Pikeperch

Pikeperch

The shallow water zones with their reeds offer the fish ideal spawning grounds. The Wellersdorfer Bucht (Wellersdorfer Bay - on the north shore, below Wellersdorf and opposite the landing stage of St. Johann) is a sanctuary and can therefore only be fished from June 16.

White fish predominate; grayling, carp and tench are angled a lot in the lower reaches. Salmonids (brown trout, rainbow trout and brook trout) are caught in the upper area. The predators are predominantly pikeperch, pike and catfish. There is hardly a local fish species that does not exist here, surprises are always possible.

The burbot, the only freshwater cod, which is very rare or has disappeared in most waters, is still found here in large numbers. Before the spawning season in late autumn, swarms of burbots gather in the more strongly flowing sections below the power station. Special burbot day tickets are issued, which are valid from 5 p.m. to midnight.
