Spittal an der Drau, a small town with a big heart

Porcia Castle bears witness to the long history of the town; it is one of the finest Renaissance buildings north of the Alps, and naturally the pride and joy of all the people of Spittal. Conveniently located near the A10 motorway, and with connections in every direction, this district capital has also become an economic power-house.  

Companies based in the city have been successfully operating at international level for many years. The city helps to promote special investment projects, to maintain permanent jobs and improve the economic fabric of the town.  

Spittal is sure to delight you with its southern charm and interesting history. The restaurants offering regional cuisine, shops, leisure facilities and nearby Lake Millstatt all let you enjoy life at a leisurely pace. 

This pretty town provides cultural interest with the Ensemble Porcia theatre company and their show “Das Leichte Lachen” (“The Easy Laugh”), as well as various choirs and cultural associations.
