Klagenfurt Guide

Car hire Klagenfurt
Car hire Klagenfurt

Klagenfurt, with its idyllic surroundings and beautiful nature, is understandably a favourite summer lakeside resort for Europeans. The town itself is sleepy but charming and a good stopover point if you are exploring the Carinthia lake region.

The town itself is a university city dating back to 1161 and is the provincial capital of Carinthia. The historic city centre can easily explored on foot. It is quadrangular in shape and surrounded by streets that were created atop the old city wall which was destroyed in the Napoleonic invasions. The Neuer Platz (New Square) lies in the centre of this quadrangle. In the centre of the square you will find a fountain in the shape of a ferocious dragon called the Lindwurm, the city's symbol.

By car it is easy to explore the surrounding lakes and towns. A local summer favourite is the nearby Wörther See (Lake Wörther), on the western side of the city. Also, don’t miss other historic sites in the area within an easy driving distance -- St. Veit, Hochosterwitz Castle, Magdelensberg, and the Cathedral of Gurk. Slovenia is also only 31kms north of Klagenfurt and worth a day trip or a longer visit.

Klagenfurt Airport is located just northeast of the city and is easily accessible. The primary carrier is Austrian Airlines, with direct flights from Zurich, Rome and Frankfurt. If travelling to Klagenfurt by car from Vienna, take the A2 motorway south to the junction with route 17, then route 83. The distance from Vienna is about 200kms.

The city has very strict parking rules. There are so-called ‘blue zones’ where you can park with special vouchers for up to 90 minutes &endash; you will see blue lines on the roads. These vouchers can be easily purchased at shops, banks, petrol stations etc. and you have to write in the time you arrived and display the voucher inside your front windscreen.

Frequently asked questions

Is the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place.
