Austria 12 June: Klagenfurt - Velden

Schooltime in Klagenfurt

Schooltime in Klagenfurt! We enjoyed a beautiful sunny morning and got ready for school-action!

The "Lindwurm", the landmark of Klagenfurt, the capital of Carinthia...

We arrived at the primary school in Viktring. The kids lined up for High Five...

...more spectators...

After our presentation all the kids got a chance to hold the torch. But what would be a meeting without a Run?

...the kids gave everything...

Thank you primary school Viktring for the enthusiastic participation!

...we went on and arrived at the Waldorf-school Klagenfurt. Students awaited us and carried the torch into the school...

...the kids prepared refreshments...

...a lovely setup under a huge tree...

Thank you for the heartfelt meeting!

...here you can take a smile with you...

A group of students joined us to carry the torch to the next school...

...we reached the city centre....

...and we reached the primary school "Hermagoras-Mohorjeva" - a bi-lingual school which teaches in Slovenian and German.

As we carried the torch in, the kids lined up and gave us a musical welcome...

...the youngest spectators...

....more entertainment...

Thank you for the nice welcome!

How many runners fit in a phone-boot?

Our last meeting brought us to the Montessori school Klagenfurt.

The school is located beautifully at the edge of the city right in the nature...

...we found the kids waiting in the shade...

A big Thank you to the Montessori school for the nice welcome!

The kids stormed around the field and straight into the weekend...

...now our "real" running started. We had to cover 20 km in the heat all the way to Velden to conclude our Run around lake "Wörthersee".

...new friends...

..the castle in Velden - our final destination...

Thank you Carinthia for all the friendship and hospitality!
