The steeple of Klagenfurt’s parish church features a viewing platform located 50 m above the ground, treating visitors to beautiful views of historical downtown Klagenfurt as well as a marvelous panorama spanning the Wörthersee, Karawanken, Koralpe and more. A climb up the 225 steps of the steeple is definitely worth the effort. An exhibition is open to visitors about the history of the church tower and the way the watchmen lived in former times high up the tower in the old watchman‘s apartment quarters. The utensils they used are also on display. Inside St. Aegidius’ parish church, you can also visit the Fuchs Chapel.
