Sarah in Klagenfurt
Here there be dragons… the city's foundation story says so! And in a place like Klagenfurt, it's not hard to believe that there just might be something lurking in the ancient mountains or around the shores and wetlands of the Wörthersee. The beautiful little city and the surrounding area has so much to offer in the way of fun and things to do and Alpen Adria Universität has a plethora of classes both German and English. My experience in Klagenfurt was nothing short of amazing, so if you're looking to improve your German, get some classes out of the way, or just have the adventure of a lifetime, Klagenfurt am Wörthersee is the place for you!
