Krumpendorf am Wörthersee (Slovene: Kriva Vrba) is a municipality in Klagenfurt-Land District, in Carinthia, Austria.

Geography[edit]

Villa Haybäck

Krumpendorf stretches along the northern shore of Wörthersee, Carinthia's largest bathing lake. The municipal area with 11.86 km2 (4.58 sq mi) is the smallest of all Carinthian municipalities. In the east, it borders on the state capital Klagenfurt. Krumpendorf can be reached via two junctions of the Süd Autobahn (A2) from Vienna to Villach and the border with Italy.

The municipal area comprises the cadastral communities of Pritschitz (Pričiče), Krumpendorf, Drasing und Gurlitsch II.

History[edit]

The original name Chrumpendorf was probably derived from the local denotation krumpe Felfer (Slovene: vrba), i.e. "crooked willow". Drasing Castle, located on a northern hillside, was first mentioned 1284, it may have been the site of an outer ward of the nearby Moosburg (Arnulf Castle) Kaiserpfalz. Once a rural area, its picturesque setting nowadays makes Krumpendorf a popular destination for daytrippers and tourist resort. Beside the Baroque Krumpendorf Castle finished in 1740, the overall appearance of the locality features several lavish hotels and mansions built in the typical fin-de-siècle 'Wörthersee Style'.

The name affix am Wörther See was added by resolution of the local government in 1987, modified am Wörthersee in 2012.
