Carinthia region in Austria

Jump to last reply

My husband and I love Austria and have been several times to various regions. This time we are looking for an area we haven't yet visited and I stumbled upon the Carinthia area while watching a television show called Alps From Above. What really got me was the Hochosterwitz castle.

This trip wouldn't be for awhile so I'm not really looking for specific suggestions but more along the lines of general information on what the area is like and the landscape. I've tried doing searches on the Fodors forum for various towns in the region but something must be wrong with the search field because nothing is coming up...I have a hard time believing nobody has ever written about Klagenfurt!

So can someone tell me how the region compares to, say, the Salzkammergut in terms of the landscape? I know that Klagenfurt isn't nestled in the mountains like Hallstatt, but is the region mountainous with beautiful vistas? Klagenfurt looks lovely but we typically pretty cute/pretty smaller villages for a base where we would probably stay for about a week. Are there any small town recommendations? Can one stay in this area for a week and keep busy (we would probably visit during May or October)?
