Drive from Vienna to Klagenfurt?

Has anyone driven from Vienna to Klagenfurt? We are looking at flying back to Stansted from Klagenfurt airport (its dirt cheap) and we are wondering if anyone has done this drive?

Car hire is cheap enough and route planner has it as a 3 1/2 hour drive, can anyone verify this?

Is it a scenic route?

What are the roads like, Autobahn or crappy roads etc.

thanks for all replies

Why not save yourself some stress and take the train.

This costs less than 50 euro , less if more than 1 travel together.Takes less than 4 hours.

PS. We do not have " crappy roads " in Austria.

The driving is almost entirely on an autobahn, The A-2, a little more scenic after Graz.

Can't you get a flight out of Bratislava? Is this flight ex Klagenfurt still that cheap if you add the costs for getting there? Have you tried all airlines flying from Vienna to London such as Easyjet or Aerlingus?

it's a nice enough drive, Autobahn ( A2) all the way, and Klagenfurt would be worth a day or two as well.
