The provincial capital, Klagenfurt, located in the heart of Carinthia, is an inspiration with its history, culture and liveliness, major events and numerous sights.
One of them, for example, is the historic Old Town with its Italian palaces and cultural treasures such as the Coat of Arms Hall, the Carinthian Museum of Modern Art and the Klagenfurt City Theatre or the romantic Lendkanal, a waterway which connects the city centre with the eastern bay of Lake Wörthersee.
The many cultural and natural sightseeing possibilities are rounded off by attractive excursions in the municipalities of Maria Saal, Poggersdorf, Grafenstein and Ebenthal, which are all part of the tourism region.<
