"Landhaus" Klagenfurt Things to Do Tip by PetraG

Klagenfurt Things to Do: 98 reviews and 158 photos


The "Landhaus" (seat of carinthian government) is one the most representative secular buildings in the city. It was built in an U-shape, with a steep saddle roof and two towers by the Italian architect Antonio Verda. The courtyard has one of the most beautifully preserved Renaissance facades.
The most precious part of the Landhaus is a hall containing 665 coats of arms of Carinthian aristocrats. The beautiful ceiling and the wall fresco are masterpieces by Josef Ferdinand Fromiller.

Address: near Alter Platz
