Fodor's Expert Review Landhaus

Klagenfurt Government Building

One of the most notable sights of the city is the Landhaus, with its towers and court with arcaded stairways. It was completed in 1590, and at the time formed a corner of the city wall. The only interior on view is the dramatic Grosser Wappensaal (Great Hall of Heraldry), which contains 665 coats of arms of Carinthia's landed gentry and on the ceiling a stirring rendition of the Fürstenstein investiture ceremony portrayed by Fromiller, the most important Carinthian painter of the baroque period. The Gasthaus im Landhaushof, on the ground floor, is well worth a stop for lunch.
