Sightseeing
Keutschach am See is a municipality in the district of Klagenfurt-Land in the Austrian state of Carinthia.GeographyThe municipality lies in a glacial valley between the Wörthersee Lake and Mt. Pyramidenkogel on the north and the summits of the Sattnitz range on the south. It lies on the east bank of the Keutschacher See, about 15km west of the state capital Klagenfurt. Other nearby lakes include Hafnersee, Baßgeigensee, and Rauschelesee. Large parts of the valley since 1970 form a protected landscape area.PopulationAccording to the 2001 census 5.6% of the population are Carinthian Slovenes.HistoryChodesach in the Duchy of Carinthia was first mentioned in a 1150 deed. The estates were the ancestral seat of the Keutschach noble family, documented since 1299, whose most noted scion was Leonhard von Keutschach (c.1442–1519), Prince-Archbishop of Salzburg from 1495 until his death. In the early 16th century, the dynasty had a Renaissance castle erected, which later was replaced by a nearby Baroque building, called the "New Castle" (Neues Schloss), finished in 1679 and rebuilt under the Orsini-Rosenberg noble family in the 18th century.
