Thank-you VT for making my tip on MINIMUNDUS - "TIP OF THE DAY"
March 12th 2012


THE LEGEND OF KLAGENFURT

The City of Klangenfurt was founded on a Legend!

Evidently, this area was haunted by a Dragon known as a Lindworm. One of the men killed it, and a City was born!

Klagenfurt am Worthersee is the capital of the federal state of Carinthia in Austria.

It is the 6th largest City in Austria.

The city is the bishop's seat of the Roman Catholic diocese of Gurk-Klagenfurt.

Klagenfurt has a typical Continental climate, with a fair amount of fog throughout the autumn and winters are rather cold.

Klagenfurt has 800 years of history, an old town, Castles from the Middle Ages & Renaissance ages, and was home to several great Poets.

Well, I had a wonderful time here, especially finishing off with a few hours at Minimundus.
A pity it rained and ruined some photos, but at least I did manage quite a few without rain-drops.


So, we are back in the Car, and now on our way to VELDEN AM WORTHERSEE, where we are going to spend some time.
please join us!

    Good story about the dragon - seeing them all over the town like this reminded me of Krakow which also has a dragon as its emblem. Minimundus looks fun too, and very well done :-)

    Amazingly detailed models in Minimundus! And the city of Klagenfurt looks very interesting, too.
