Probably the best way to discover what makes this city so special is a guided tour.

In fact, Klagenfurt offers visitors several different opportunities to explore the city center and surrounding areas.

During a History Walk, for example, the guide strolls side-by-side with tour participants, sharing expert background information about Klagenfurt’s monuments and sightseeing attractions.The tour starts at Dr.-Arthur-Lemisch-Platz and takes you, in about 90 minutes, to the most beautiful places and sights in the city. The guides provide the background information to the sights. At the end, there won’t be much that you don’t know about the history of this beautiful city.


Accompanied by a guide with extensive background knowledge, every Friday and Saturday you will be able to discover the most beautiful landmarks and locations within our city – and it doesn’t cost a cent! You should schedule about 1 ½ hours for this tour of Klagenfurt’s historic “Old Town”.

Dates: every Friday and Saturday at 10 a.m.
Meeting point:Dr. Arthur Lemisch Platz (Spanheim Monument)

Duration: about 90 minutes

If you are planning a group tour or are interested in scheduling a special day or time, please contact us in advance!


A guided tour of the Old Town is best concluded with a visit to the Fuchskapelle, designed by the recently deceased Austrian painter Dr. Ernst Fuchs, who spent more than 20 years remodeling the southern chapel of the Stadtpfarrkirche into the "Apocalypse Chapel" that it is today.
