Travel by car
There are two main motorways in Austria leading to Klagenfurt, namely the A2 (Suedautobahn) and the A10 (Tauernautobahn).
- From the east/Vienna: A2 motorway towards Graz and Klagenfurt (Graz - Klagenfurt approx. 130 km)
- From the north/Salzburg: A10 motorway to Klagenfurt (Salzburg - Klagenfurt approx. 240 km); extra toll between the "Tauerntunnel" and "Katschbergtunnel" (Euro 9.50)
- From the north/Linz: A9 motorway towards Graz then A2; or A10 motorway towards Salzburg and then A10 to Klagenfurt
- From the north/Germany/Tyrol: via Kufstein - Mittersill - Felbertauerntunnel (toll) - Lienz -Villach - Klagenfurt (no motorway but scenic drive)
- From the south: A2 motorway (A23 in Italy) via Udine - Tarvisio or A11 motorway from Slovenia, toward Villach and Klagenfurt
For the Klagenfurt University leave the A2 motorway at "Klagenfurt West" exit "Minimundus/Klagenfurt Woerthersee", straight ahead to the "Woerthersee Sueduferstr.", and after approximately 200 meters turn left to the university. There are a sufficient number of parking lots around the university area (free of charge).
During summer vacation time an increased volume of traffic is to be expected, resulting in traffic jams with possible delays up to several hours, especially on weekends between Salzburg and Villach on the A10!
