Klagenfurt - Eating
Restaurants reflect the city’s history and location – Austria meets Italy in the kitchens in an array of good eating places, and smart Italian cafés get equal billing with traditional Austrian coffee houses.
In the luxurious Palais Hotel Landhaushof, a former Renaissance palace, you'll find stylish food in a soaring courtyard-style setting.
