City of Krumpendorf.

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’.
