Klagenfurt is the capital of Carinthia state in Austria. It is the sixth-largest city in the country with a little less than a hundred thousand inhabitants. Even though it is not considered as one of the biggest tourist attractions in Austria, the city has good transport connections with some of the major European cities. There is an international airport, a central train station, and a city bus network connecting the sixteen districts of Klagenfurt. Since the city is located in the south of Austria, you can also reach Slovenia and Italy pretty quickly. Also, Graz, the second-largest city of Austria, is located just about a hundred kilometers from Klagenfurt.

While perhaps not particularly well known amongst international tourists, the city is historically significant and has a couple of interesting sights -- one of the largest and warmest alpine lakes Wörthersee and miniature park Minimundus are the most popular ones. The lake is an especially popular destination during the summer for swimming and water sports, as well as different summer events. Other attractions include Lindwurm fountain on the main square; Kreuzbergl nature park; botanical garden; Viktring Abbey monastery; and two castles, Tentschach and Hallegg.

The city and the surrounding area certainly offer some of the most stunning views of the Alps and there are some fabulous hiking and cycling trails to explore. Klagenfurt also offers plenty of opportunities to spend some money with its numerous shopping malls and stores, if you are looking to do some shopping. It's worth mentioning that Klagenfurt is also home to the Alpen-Adria University, which is situated near the Wörthersee lake.

Although there are mostly hotels and campsites in the Klagenfurt area, you can also find a couple of decent Klagenfurt hostels. And since the city is relatively small, any one of them is a good choice regarding the location.
