Hypo-Arena

Hypo Arena (former Wörtherseestadion) is a football stadium in Klagenfurt District Waidmannsdorf, Austria. It is the home ground of Bundesliga team SK Austria Kärnten and is designed for 22,000 people. As the venue for the UEFA Euro 2008 it could accommodate 32,000 spectators in the short term. The sports park includes other facilities as: a ball sport competence, a football academy, climbing walls, rowing basin and an athletic facility.
The Wörthersee Stadium was built in 1960. The stadium was a long-drawn oval with grandstands and a career low in the field. As the Arena was going to host matches in the 2008 European Championship, it was completely demolished in 2005. The new stadium was finished by September 2007 by the construction companies Porr AG and Alpine Mayreder. The first game for the opening on 7 September was a friendly match between Austria and Japan, which ended in a goalless draw. The cost of the overall project with the appropriate sports park has been estimated by official sources, to 66.5 million euro. The stadium should provide location for three European Championship qualifying matches with 32,000 spectators’ capacity.

On 30 June 2007 it was revealed that the Wörthersee Stadium will wear for the next ten years, the name of Hypo Group Arena. It secured the naming rights for the new stadium for the next ten years to 2017. After the death of Carinthia's Provincial Governor Joerg Haider, the Freedom Party has proposed to rename the stadium, Jörg-Haider Stadium, but the financial issues made it impossible.
Hotel Schlosswirt Klagenfurt in Ebenthal is a four star hotel located next to a beautiful Renaissance palace and has a large park at prices starting from 85 euro.
