Volkermarkt

This town lies on the banks of a reservoir created by damming the Drau river, 25 km (16 miles) east of the Carinthian capital, Klagenfurt. It grew up around the bridge across the Drau and the 12thcentury church of St Rupert, whose Romanesque tower still rises above the town. The Kirche St. Magdalena (church of Mary Magdalene), built in 1240 and altered in the 15th century, has a lovely late- Romanesque west portal. Its interior is late-Gothic, with some earlier features, such as the 14th-century frescoes next to the entrance. In one of the side chapels and in the presbytery, details of late-Gothic frescoes can be seen. In Volkermarkt’s Hauptplatz stands a former ducal palace, now the seat of the local authorities, and an arcaded late-Gothic town hall.
