A warm welcome to Leiben!
North of Melk at the Danube, at the entrance into the fascinating southern Waldviertel, our municipality Leiben is located.
Holiday experience is offered to every visitor. Smooth, wildly romantic landscape with panoramic hiking paths, the fishing area Weitenbach (the secret tip among fishers!), the bustling leisure centre at an old creek of the Danube (free entrance!) with bathing, surfing, rowing and biking possibility, beach buffet, beachvolleyball field, paddleboat rental - you will find here everything for your personal holiday experience.
Typical landmark of our village on an impressing rock: our castle Leiben.
Dating back to the 11th century castle, today the "Europe castle", it has been totally renovated and now forms the centre of our cultural highlights. Just as well, it serves the purpose of an ideal historical ambiance for weddings, parties, product presentations, and many more.
Apart from the numerous exhibitions, the castle accomodates the unique agricultural-technical museum with pieces of a single production mobile test models and historical tractors.
More sights: the ruin Weitenegg, the gallows cross, the parish church Lehen and the Saint Corona church in Leiben.
