Sankt Veit an der Glan : Michelin's recommendations
St. Veit was the seat of the Dukes of Carinthia until 1518, when it ceded the role of regional capital to Klagenfurt. However, its ramparts, picturesque streets, two squares lined with pretty, three-storey houses and their arcaded courtyards make it a most charming town. Modern architecture has made a recent and very visible intrusion in town, with Austria's longest glass passage and the surprising and richly-coloured "Artistic Hotel" by Ernst Fuchs.
