A large tables, where you will certainly sit with several groups of friends or several families, and a friendly staff who will quickly find a place for you, even though it may seems impossible. Pumpe is a traditional Austrian restaurant, which is main specialty - stew. You must visit it.

“Pumpe” is the best known pub of Klagenfurt. Having existed since the nineteenth century, it does not seem to have undergone major changes of appearance in the last decades.

The Pumpe in Klagenfurt is fabulous. This is THE place for the locals and you can see why. Their speciality is gulasch with dumplings which is yummy. The beer is pretty good too. This is Carinthian hospitality at its very best. The locals know it so visitors should simply join in.

an english menu would be of help to explain the various dishes offered they serve many gulasch dishes, which is very interesting but with an only german menu, one might be lost...

Great Lunch, traditional food. A true great place to enjoy a beer or 4. Every time I'm in town I go out of my way for lunch and a beer. Could be pretty full in the evenings as this is a locals favorite.

Enjoy this very special pub atmosphere on your stay in Klagenfurt and have a beer (or two) together with the best Gulasch in town. You share your table with the true locals and experience good Carinthian and Austrian food and friendly waiters. Unfortunately no wlan available.
