The Host City:
Klagenfurt is situated at the beautiful Lake Wörthersee – one of Europe’s largest and warmest alpine lakes – and has around 103,000 inhabitants. Klagenfurt is a pleasant place to live and work as a relatively small city with a Renaissance-style city centre reflecting 800 years of history and Italian influence. It is not only a lively city but also a very historical place: at the crossroads of three cultural spaces – Germanic, Romance, and Slavic cultures – it was predominantly Italian master builders who determined the appearance of the old town district. Discover magnificent Renaissance buildings, façades renovated true to the original style and shadowy, arcaded inner courtyards on a stroll through the old town; see the beauty of the religious buildings on a church walk; or visit one of the many museums, castles, and galleries in or around the city.
