The history of Lower Austria

From Hiata and Hammerschid, to priests and the Venus, from the Stone Age to the present day: amazing stories stand the test of time!

From the small and ancient, such as the ‘Venus of Willendorf’, a delicate statue from the Stone Age, to the impressive and modern, such as the Cultural District in the Lower Austrian capital of St. Pölten: Everyday culture and high culture merge fluently and shape the culture, people and state.
