To get an idea
on the location of Klagenfurt, you may have a look at this: where
from the highway (all directions) to the University:
from the West (Salzburg, Villach), you first go until "Klagenfurt
West" which is the next crossing after Krumpendorf. Be careful and take
at Klagenfurt-West the leftmost lane directly to Klagenfurt Center. At
Klagenfurt-Wörthersee (1,5 km after Klagenfurt-West) you leave the highway.
Coming from the North (St. Veit) or the East (Graz, Vienna), you follow the
many tunnels in the north of Klagenfurt westwards. Immediately after the
Falkenbergtunnel you take the second exit (about 300 m after the end of the
Tunnel, so be alert!) directed to "Klagenfurt West". About 1,5 km
after that you leave the highway at Exit "Klagenfurt-Wörthersee".
After having left the highway at Klagenfurt-Wörthersee (=Klagenfurt-See in
short) you immediately come to the so called "Minimundus-Crossing"
(with traffic-lights). You keep straight direction towards south. After 400
m you will see the logo of the University of Klagenfurt. Turn left into the
Universitätsstraße. You have arrived at your destination.
from Slovenia (via Loiblpass) to the University:
down the Loiblpass you go right through Unterloibl, Kirschentheuer, passing
the Hollenburg and Maria Rain until you come to the first traffic lights of
Klagenfurt. There you go straight ahead. After about 800 m at the next
traffic lights you turn left towards the direction Wörthersee/Universität/Autobahn
Villach to the so-called "Südring". You go along the Südring,
passing the Wörthersee stadium. About 1 km after the stadium the road makes
a big turn right. Looking ahead then you will see on your right the
"Lakeside Park" and just behind it is the University of
is a sufficient number of parking lots around the university area (only with costs).
Airport is reachable by direct flights from Vienna (Austrian
Airlines), from Berlin, Cologne/Bonn, Hamburg and Hannover (Air Berlin), from Cologne/Bonn (Germanwings), from Munich (Lufthansa) and from London Stansted, Stockholm, Goeteborg (Ryanair).
