What should never be left out on every classic city trip?
Shopping, of course.

In the historical old town of Klagenfurt, which is entirely a pedestrian zone, you are in just the right place. Here you can stroll leisurely between handicraft shops, fashion shops, luxury boutiques, perfumeries, bookshops and excellent department stores. You will find plenty of souvenirs, specialities for the eyes and the tastebuds, old and new, interesting and innovative, and you will also discover two of the city’s important landmarks on the way: the Lindwurm on Neuer Platz square and the Wörtherseemandl on Dr.-Arthur-Lemisch-Platz square. Taking a break to replenish your energy at one of the many restaurants or cafés will round off your stroll, on which you are sure to have found a few bargains. Directly in the city centre you will also find the City Arkaden shopping centre, and a little further towards the outskirts of town, the Südpark, another slightly smaller shopping centre. We can highly recommend the weekly market, the Klagenfurt Benediktinermarkt, to lovers of culinary delights. It is here that on Thursdays and Saturdays, regional farmers from Carinthia, Friuli and Slovenia sell their products – all of them fresh, many from organic cultivation, and all incomparably delicious.

BENEDICTINE MARKET

Klagenfurt’s Benedictine Market in downtown Klagenfurt offers everything your heart could possibly desire. What a wonderful hustle and bustle there is in front of the market stands when, on Thursday and Saturday between 6:30 a.m. and 1 p.m., farmers from across Carinthia as well as neighboring Friuli in Italy and Slovenia, offer their products. Aside from delicious foods and fresh grocery items, at the market itself as well as in the neighboring streets you will come across ample opportunities to enjoy a delicious cup of coffee, a small snack and a good chat.

You can also go shopping in both halls of the Benedictine Market daily from 6:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. (Wednesday until 1:45 p.m.).

An organics market also sets up here every Friday from 6:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. featuring products from the region’s organic farmers.
