This unusual sculpture is set on the main square in town and add a lot of character to it. it is said to be from the 16th century and pulled to the square by 300 men dressed all in white.

Shortly after it was erected they added the Fountain which used to be the source of the towns drinking water and used to fight fires!

It isn’t the most aesthetically pleasing but the history adds a great deal.

The Lindwurm fountain, representing the Lindwurm dragon, about to be slayed by Hercules, is located in the center of Klagenfurt, on the Neuer Platz. The Lindwurm sculpture hails from the 16th century, the Hercules figure was added in the 17th century. It has been adopted by the Klagenfurt council as the symbol of Klagenfurt. a silhouette of the Lindwurm, mostly in red, is often added to Klagenfurt publicity. I have added some pictures to this review for a view of this fountain. When arriving by car, avoid the car park at the Neuer Platz, under the Lindwurm. This car park is extremely expensive. Try for the Arkaden car park or Theater car park just to the north of the pedestrianized area of Klagenfurt.

A very impressive and nice park with a statue on a fountain. If you have not seen it you have not been in Klagenfurt.

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 then one hour, and it costed 7,00 €, we didn't have any coins and tried to pay with paper money. After third try parking automat blocked parking ticket, and every time we inserted parking ticket it said "ticket blocked" we couldn't pay parking fee with coins either any more. We called info service number, and the phone rang in the closed garage office. We called police, nobody speaks english, they connected us with some other people from parking service (maybe) they barely spoke english, and wasn't very helpful either. Time passed and we reached third hour in garage with parking fee over 10,00 €, suddenly parking ticked was unlocked and the stupid machine accepted coins we exchanged in the meanwhile. So, if you don't want to spend your time visiting Klagenfurt in dark underground garage, go park somewhere else, it's definitely cheaper. On the brighter side, the square itself is average, the dragon is interesting but not very exceptional.

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.

Almost in the city centre, there lies a statue of a flying dragon and a man fighting with it. Also a statue of Queen is present here. Looks a good place with lot of shops around to buy souvenirs. A must visit place in Klagenfurt...

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.

We stayed in Klagenfurt for 2 Nights as it was not far to a village we wanted to visit. There is two sides to this town old town and new town, we spent all of our time in the new town, there is an abundance of different shops, nice Restaurants & Cafe's. There is a lot to see in this lovey town or outside of it.

Yes, it has stood there forever it seems and has been admired and looked at by generations of Austrians and other visitors. There are many reviews already available. So I will restrict my review to this, come in the evening, it is quite magical and also look at the bronze statue of Empress Maria Theresia, it's BIG. Also, Saturday is the Wochenmarkt (Market) and THAT is interesting to say the least. Great for buying all those specialties Kärnten has to offer including Bauerschnapps. Guten Apetit und Servus.
