Looks like a very nice city to me.
The old 'highrises' remind me of our own seventies buildings here in Ghent.
Thanks for sharing.

well the pot can't be stirred, if there's nothing to be stirred, can it?

No, but really, this is the town where I have been countless times in my life, it's just 1,5 hours away from Ljubljana actually. And yes, we call it Celovec, if that offends anybody here, then it tells more about them than about me.

Anyways, Klagenfurt also has lovely surroundings, I especially like Woerther See and Rosegg castle.

All I knew so far about this place was because of Pago juices and Jörg Haider, looks indeed like a nice place, perfect mix of old and new.

Hi Folks, Thank you for all the nice comments so far, i´ll do my best to shoot and upload some more pics of Klagenfurt. There is still more to see, not just buildings, but also the scenery the town is embedded into. from now on i am taking my camera with me more often, so more pics should follow.

As for some comments: Yes, in Slovenian language, the city of Klagenfurt is called "Celovec", so no offense or provocation taken. After all, we have a significant slovenian minority in the region.

Pago juices are from Klagenfurt, probably one of this town´s best known brands. Another known brand is "Stroh-Rum", some might know it:


Euro Football fans know that Klagenfurt hosted three EURO 2008 matches as well. i think some stadium pics should follow as well. maybe i´ll go to some of the matches.
