The transplanted forest is the brainchild of the Swiss artist Klaus Littmann who told reporters he wanted to create the image of "a forest that we have put in a totally new context".

"The contrast between the trees and the steel, concrete and glass -- you can't get better than that," Littmann said.

The 300 trees of various different kinds -- aspen, Oaks, birches and larches -- were grown in nurseries and will be moved out of the stadium on October 27.

As for Klagenfurt's football team, who play in Austria's Second League, it will temporarily move to a smaller facility nearby.
