In the evenings DJs provide musical Atmosphere, away from the football-Crowd. The polish Art-Bus makes a stop here.

The idea is to enlarge the mile of culture. To pass over the brake point and let it flow continuously.

An Object at Jergitschsteg, Klagenfurt, is part of an imaginary track to the Lake Wörthersee and it is the only part of the track that can be seen.

This piece of urban-art brings the air of an imaginary world, full of cute characters to the audience and deals with the issue of soccer in a very funny and casual way.

The visitors from the seaside are having a special experience. The first bridge is the possibilty to slip directly into the match, shown trough a interpretation of dependency on the game.

→ The Mile of Art »lend|spiel« (promenade of culture) stretches along the pictorial Lend canal and is an open air exhibition portraying contemporary European art designed on the occasion of the European Championship 2008. It connects football and art as well as the Wörthersee-stadium and the host city Klagenfurt and it creates bridges between the opponents in group B Germany, Croatia, Austria and Poland.

City football-free-zone


Within the framework of the »lend|spiel« project the bridges across the Lend canal are going to be redesigned by young artists from the mentioned countries. The »Steinerne Brücke« bridge (the oldest bridge of the city) will act as a gate to this promenade of culture. Next comes the urban motorway bridge followed by the art nouveau bridge »Rizzibrücke«, the modern »Jergitschsteg« and finally the historical »Lendhafen« harbour


Thus the way from the stadium to the fan areas in the city centre becomes a special art experience. On display you will find modern graphics, graffiti art, poster artwork, light installations as well as sculptural and metal works.

open air exhibition of contemporary european art

mile of art

You can experience all works of art on two ways: via a walk alongside the canal or on a tour with the ferry boat »Lendwurm«. In the »Lendhafen« harbour visitors can expect a widespread programme with international DJs and catering surrounded by the unique atmosphere of this historical part of the city. The whole Mile of Art promenade remains football-free with no public-viewing areas. It functions as an artistic opposite to football and provides time and places for people interested in arts to stroll, relish and reflect. On the final days of the Mile of Art »lend|spiel« project (15th and 16th June) the artist Piotr Lutyński from Krakow, who is on tour through Austria with his Polishart-bus, will visit the Lendhafen harbour. His modified Mercedes bus acts as exhibition space and stage for performances, improvisations, concerts and interactions with the audience or other artists. With it everything is arranged for a dignified finish of the celebration of art amidst the football event.
