Fodor's Review

The old town square of Klagenfurt, or Alter Platz, is still the center of the city. Brightly colored buildings with baroque facades dating from the 12th century frame this pedestrian meeting area. A Trinty Column dating from 1680 (which represents God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy spirit) now stands in the Alter Platz. These columns were built all over Europe as a thanks to God from the people for having survived the Plague which killed nearly 25 million Europeans during the middle ages.The brightly colored yellow building is the old townhall.
