Klagenfurt – the Host City for DX2019!

Klagenfurt is situated at the beautiful Lake Wörthersee – one of the largest and warmest alpine lakes in Europe – and has nearly 95.000 inhabitants. Being a small city, with a Renaissance-style city center reflecting 800 years of history and with an Italian influence, Klagenfurt is a pleasant place to live and work.

Klagenfurt is not only a lively city but also a very historical town: predominantly Italian master builders have determined the appearance of the historic old town. Discover magnificent Renaissance buildings, facades renovated true to the original style and shady arcaded inner courtyards on a stroll through the old town; see the beauty of the sacral buildings on a church walk; or visit one of the many museums, castles, and galleries.
