Klagenfurt is the capital of the state of Carinthia in Austria; it has a population of around 99,000 and is the sixth largest in the country.
Due to a more southerly location, Klagenfurt has cold winters but relatively warm summers and is in a prime position on the shores of the popular Lake Worthersee.
The city has a myriad of attractions and is a great place to use as a base to explore southern Austria and the absolutely jaw-dropping landscapes and mountain scenery that you can find there.
Lets explore the best things to do in Klagenfurt:
1. Lake Worthersee
One of the main reasons people visit the beautiful town of Klagenfurt is to take advantage of the immense Lake Worthersee that sits right next to Klagenfurt’s west side.
This large lake is a prime tourist destination in the region of Carinthia and has a wide range of activities and sights both on its shores and in the water.
Due to the relatively Mediterranean climate of the lake and surrounding region, it attracts a high amount of visitors who want to bathe in the warm waters or relax on the shores.
