Klagenfurt, home to about 100,000 inhabitants, is a modern, relaxed, and safe city with a Mediterranean flair uniquely placed at the intersection of three distinct cultures. The campus is situated close to the mountains, lakes, and the Adriatic is within easy reach. Klagenfurt’s own airport services Vienna (a 20 minutes flight) and several international destinations. The major airports and urban centers of Graz, Ljubljana, and Venice are all within 2-3 hours public transport travel. Direct trains from Vienna and Munich traverse the Alps on beautiful routes and take no more than twice that time. Alpen-Adrian-University Klagenfurt is one of the most attractive campus universities in Austria.
