About Lindwurmbrunnen And Neuerplatz, Klagenfurt

The fountain at this square is fit to put all other fountains to shame. It’s Klagenfurt’s main landmark – the Lindworm, a giant dragon about to be slain by Hercules. While the dragon fountain was established in the 16th century, the Hercules statue wasn’t added until the 17th. Check out the various coat of arms on the base of the fountain.

When you’re done admiring the fountain, take your gaze to the other end of the square, where an equally impressive statue of Empress Maria Theresa looms large. Then look around at the rest of this lovely square. There are a great many shops, restaurants and cafes around. On Saturday, the Wochenmarkt is set up – by far the best way to see the locals in action. If you can, get one of them to tell you the story about the dragon.

A little way down Kramergasse, you’ll come across another curious little statue – the Woertherseemandl, a strange dwarf with a keg who seems to be shouting up at the sky. He’s got a very interesting story too!
