The business location Klagenfurt am Wörthersee

The Provincial Capital City of Klagenfurt am Wörthersee is the single most attractive location for doing business in Austria due to its outstanding geographical location in the south of the country. It is also one of the most important business factors for the Alpine province of Carinthia and its economic success story. Leading international companies such as Philips Austria, Magna Steyr, addIT, Skidata, DB Schenker, w&p Baustoffe GmbH, Kapsch or Mazda Austria to name only a few have all discovered the advantages of operating here and experienced for themselves the enormous quality density and first class training opportunities they have on their doorstep in this city. They all benefit from the great location advantages for working successfully on international markets.


The synergy potentials of top educational institutions (university, university of applied sciences, top standard colleges and high schools plus English language nursery schooling), industrially oriented research centres together with a host of innovative companies are what makes Klagenfurt so special as a business location – and all of this with a spectacular quality of life on the lake shores of Wörthersee.

A striking new business focus has been established with the development of an industrial and commercial centre (KIZ-OST) in the east of Klagenfurt. You will find all the information you need about this project and other important business locations in Klagenfurt on the following pages.
