The Lindwurm

The Lindwurm statue can be found in the center of Klagenfurt, Austria and it is the icon of the city. You can find it on public buildings, cars and envelopes. A myth tells that in the area now covered by Klagenfurt there was once a dragon-like giant worm causing people walking into this area to disappear. 

It is said that as a prize for slaying this beast all grounds around Klagenfurt where offered. The statue shows the person defeating the Lindwurm and by that creating the foundation of the city of Klagenfurt.
