Klagenfurt Accommodation

klagenfurt hotels and accommodation City information: Klagenfurt am Wörthersee is the provincial capital of Kärnten (Carinthia) . Around Klagenfurt there are many lakes with most important the Worthersee, hemmed in by steeply rising, wooded mountains, and many nice resorts. Most of the popular lakes lie in the suntrap Klagenfurt basin. The area around is noted for its constantly lovely and sometimes superb scenery, and for its many castles, its skiing, climbing, water sports, fishing, and hunting.
Worth a visit are the Hall of Arms, in the arcaded Landhaus, and the Cathedral, both of the 16th cent.
Also visit the fine cathedral 45km. North of Klagenfurt at Gurk that is now a village but use to be once a bishop's seat. Begun in the I2th century, the cathedral is a treasury of beauty and interest. Some I o m. away, Friesach, a walled and moated medieval town with many old buildings and much of historical interest, is also worth seeing. So, too, is St Veit, en route from Klagenfurt. Near by is St Veit once the capital of Carinthia ,is noted for its Rathaus, (City hall) with its fine facade and three tiered cloisters in the courtyard.
Not to be missed among the many castles around St Veit is Hochosterwitz, 5 m. away, a fairy-tale, fortified castle built on a conical rock and approached by a spiral path.
WortherseeHot sunshine and warm springs make many Carinthian lakes very popular for water sports. Worthersee, the largest lake, is one of these. Framed with hills, it is ringed by resorts that include popular Portschach, charming Maria Worth, and lively, rather fashionable Veldcu with its casino. Quieter but still popular is Millstattersee South East of Spittal, it has a more open situation. The main resorts are Millstatt and Seeboden. Ossiachersee, the third largest lake, which lies NE. of Villach, is bordered by steeply rising mountains. Its resorts mainly have small hotels and pensions.
Of the countless smaller lakes, the most popular is perhaps little Faakersee (SE. of Villach), with its island hotel, sun-bathers scattered on beaches and in the fields, and its background of the distant Karawanken Mountains. SW. of Volkermarkt, tiny Klopeinersee, backed by trees, claims to have the warmest water of all.
One of the best of Austria's many fine views is from the resort of Kanzelhohe (q,goo ft), NE. of Villach, approached by cable-car from Annenheim on Ossiachersee. But the finest of all are seen from the Grossglocknerstrasse, the wonderful mountain road that climbs northwards across the Tauern Mountains to the province of Salzburg. It starts from the picturepostcard village of Heiligenblut, whose tall-spired church contains some extraordinarily delicate wooden statues carved by local craftsmen. A road off the Grossglocknerstrasse near its summit leads to the Franz Josef Haus, a fine hotel directly beneath Grossglockner's peak.
