Highlights

  • Discover the impressive Jewish memorials
  • Admire the multitude of golden stumbling blocks and their history behind them

Description

The souvenir bike tour starts in front of the modern station building in Klagenfurt. From here you follow the trail of human destinies right through Klagenfurt's city centre and into some outlying districts to buildings, squares and places of remembrance where these people last lived and worked. The German artist Gunter Demnig began in 1992 to lay the so-called "Stolpersteine" (Stumbling Stones) in various cities throughout Europe, in order to commemorate the numerous victims of the National Socialist regime with the engraved names and short dates of their lives. In the meantime, more than 70,000 golden stones have been laid all over Europe, and the number is increasing every year. In Klagenfurt you visit some of the 30 stumbling blocks and listen to the eventful life stories.

The approximately 25 kilometre long route is flat throughout with a short gradient in the St. Martin district.
