If you like to walk through the old town, don't forget to take your camera along. The 800-year-old city has many buildings constructed by Italian architects. Narrow alleys, arcaded courtyards and impressive Renaissance buildings are worth a visit. Browse through the boutiques and antique shops and find a souvenir to take home.

23 castles surround the town of Klagenfurt. Some of them date back to the 12th century. Take a "Castle Walk" and explore the towers and, who knows, maybe you even see a ghost. There is also the possibility to spend a night in a castle. Don't worry, the ghosts won't bother you. The castles offering this service are 3* and 4* hotels free of unwanted guests.

It doesn't have to be castles only. There is also a "Church Walk" which shows you the insides of these sacral buildings. More than 50 churches and chapels wait to be discovered by you. In the Diocesan Museum, a special item is exhibited: the oldest glass pane of Austria from 1160.
