Lower Austria

In the heart of Europe and surrounded by constantly changing borders: Lower Austria has always attracted people and powers. This has made for an eventful history and an extremely rich cultural heritage. Its treasures range from small, ancient figurines like the Venus of Willendorf, to large-scale and modern architecture like the Government Quarter and the Cultural District in St Pölten - the youngest state capital in Europe. Lower Austria's special geographic location has not only given the country a rich cultural heritage, but also an incomparable variety of landscape types thanks to the meeting of Alpine, Pannonian, and northern and southern European climate zones. Alluvial forests and steppes, alpine pastures and lakes, gorges and hilly landscapes, river valleys and moors.... There is probably no other place in Europe where so many landscapes come together harmoniously in such a dense area. The country on the Danube presents itself as a scenic and culturally attractive holiday destination!
