In October 2011 I travelled by day trains from Zürich to Zagreb. Since the journey is around 12 hours, I decided to break it somewhere. This is how I ended up in Villach for a night.

Villach is a lovely city, actually the second largest after Klagenfurt in the Bundesland Kaernten (state of Carinthia) which around 59'000 inhabitants.

    Indeed a lovely city. Love the Schneckenstiege. What's that about the WiFi problems all over town? Sheesh ...

    We really enjoyed this area last year! Your page brought back good memories. Golly that schnitzel was huge, at least 2 meals for me!

    We too spent one night in Villach to break a journey (in our case between Wien and Venice) but so long ago I had forgotten what a nice town it is. Thank you for reminding me :-) But you saw much more than we did. I wish we had known to climb the Stadtpfarrturm as that view is wonderful! And I love the St Francis statue!
