Ludmannsdorf is a town in the Austrian state of Carinthia (Kärnten), and is part of the district of Klagenfurt-Land. Ludmannsdorf has about 1900 inhabitants of whom about 100 live in Lukowitz. Carinthia is known for its mild climate and is often called the sun terrace of central Europe. Thus Ludmannsdorf often called the sun terrace of the Rosental. From the many villages of Ludmannsdorf you have a wonderful view of the Rosental and Karavanke (Hochstuhl highest peak, 2236 meters) which forms a natural border with Slovenia. Slovenia heard until 1918 in Austria and that's good to note, the area is still bilingual. For example, the villages have for example a German and Slovenian name. In the center stands the parish church Hl. James d. Alt which is an independent parish since 1784. The original Romanesque building was extended in the Gothic period. The church stands on a European Jacob's pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostella. Neighbouring countries: Italy / Slovenia Due to its central location in relation to the three countries point with Italy and Slovenia, it is possible to make day trips to these countries. Within half an hour denotes Slovenia and slightly longer than half an hour in Italy. The market in Tarvisio (It.) Offers leather goods (jackets, shoes, bags) at an affordable price. Tarvisio is about 3 minutes away. Venice (It.) Is a bit further away, almost 3 hours away. That's fine to do but it's also very nice to her for one night to take a hotel, there are plenty. Slovenia has been independent since 1991 (since 2004 a member of the EU) and therefore had little affected by the unrest in the former Yugoslavia (although the independence it took was accompanied by a brief war of 10 days and a few dozen lives). In duty-free shops at some border crossings you can buy tax free cigarettes and liquor. For the motorways you need a vignette (other than the Austrian vignette) and the Karawankentunnel have to pay toll (keep in mind that it is obligatory in Slovenia to drive with low beam). Lipica for horse lovers is an absolute must. Lipica stud farm is where traditionally bred the Lipizzaner horses of the Spanish Riding School in Vienna. Lipica is over an hour away. In both Italy and Slovenia is the fastest route through toll roads. However, it is also possible to dodge and drive through the Loiblepass (very steep) or Würzenpass. Very nice, shorter in kilometers but does something longer. Italy border: through toll roads 50.5 km, 38 min Tarvisio:. Through toll roads 57.1 km, 44 min Tarvisio:.
