Beautiful scenery, great to people-watch

Very picturesque. Romantic in nature. Great for a stroll and seeing the shops. Gelato isn't far away either!

DO NOT PARK your car in underground parking garage at Lindwurm square. We had a really bad experience on sunday visit. No operators work in garage on sundays, and phone number listed on info board is the one in the garage. Also, info board says 5,10 and 20 banknotes are accepted on paying machine, but they are not. We stayed... More

A very clean and well kept statue of the dragon, which dominates the platz where it is found. A good fable of the origins of the dragon is etched in stone nearby, it is quite striking.

This statue is located in the centre of the ciity (on the square where Christmas market takes place). We thought that it was nothing special, its average sized and not at all interesting. But as it is located it the centre, you should take a look at it.

It is on the main square and it is really nothing special. We took a photo there just because we didn't find anything in Klagenfurt. Boring town.

During the Advent Christmas Market, this dragon is surrounded by stalls selling sweets, drinks, and crafts. The atmosphere is lovely. The dragon was worth a one minute story and view with my family, unfortunately they are not into statues!

It's nice square, not too crowed and the story is interesting. We were there for a short time but it's one of the city's simbol so I do recommend you pay it a visit if you are there.

After seeing photo's of this dragon we felt that we must see it. Well, it was interesting, and of course beautifully made, and set in the centre of a lovely square
