Sports and leisure

Klagenfurt is famous for major sporting events such as the Ironman, Kärnten läuft or the United World Games, but sport plays a major role all year round for the people of Klagenfurt, whatever their age. So we are able to offer our guests a sports infrastructure that can hardly be found anywhere else. The shore of Lake Wörthersee, in the picturesque east bay, is the starting point for a large number of sporting activities. Swimmers, cyclists, runners and inline skaters meet here to flex their muscles along the shore of the emerald-green Lake Wörthersee. But you can also work up a sweat in Klagenfurt by doing other sports, such as golf, tennis or riding. And of course another option is hiking in the region, when you can enjoy the breathtakingly beautiful scenery at close quarters. For young trend sport enthusiasts, we have a skater park to meet their every need and several beach volleyball courts. And the Hollywood-style workout in the form of stand up paddle boarding can be enjoyed on the city’s waterways and in the east bay.

When winter takes hold of the city, the small lakes in and around the city and the Lend Canal turn into the largest natural Eldorado for ice skaters. Ice hockey fans can also chase the puck on these open-air pitches, but another option is the ice sport centre at the Kärtner Messen site. The city also has a range of excellent fitness centres for everyone who is not so keen on physical exercise in the cold. The main running routes along the Lend Canal and the rivers Glan and Sattnitz and on the Kreuzbergl are very popular even during the colder times of year – because they mostly lead alongside the water.


White sand and a soft ball.

Beach volleyball is a fun sport that has already attracted many enthusiasts. This trend sport is also often played with great enjoyment in Klagenfurt – after all, this has been the venue for the Beach Volleyball Grand Slam for a number of years. The most popular spot is the beach volleyball court at Klagenfurt’s Strandbad swimming beach – nowhere else does bumping the ball feel so good as right next to the water. Not far away from the swimming beach, in the idyllic Europapark, there is also a feeling of “that’s the way we like it”. Actual and aspiring beach volleyball players can also try their hand on the courts of the Sportpark Klagenfurt at the Wörthersee Stadium; the Sportpark’s indoor beach volleyball court is available in bad weather.
