Waidhofen at the Ybbs - City of the towers
Waidhofen at the Ybbs - Embedded in the gently rolling hills of the alpine upland - at the heart of the Iron Street, waiting for you to discover it.
The old towers and narrow lanes, the churches and squares - all of them tell us stories of history. Of knights and blacksmiths, of Turcs and history, long ago. The town in the countryside - Outside, in front of the gates of the town, the country lies, full of peace and harmony, inviting you to stay and lets you forget your everyday life. Because the beauty of the town is also the beauty of its hills, rivers and farms, of its clean air and the hospitality of its inhabitants.
Holidays are more than sun and beach - active holidays in a smooth way. Included is the hospitality of merry people and the feeling of being welcome.
NEW: Night watchman-guided tour
Listen folks, let me tell you...
Visit our town during the night time and have a talk to the night watchman of Waidhofen, who is going to tell you many a creepy story. During the time of the Middle-Ages, it was his main duty to safeguard peace and security of the citizens within the city walls. To identify and protect himself, he still carries a noble halberd and a lantern with him today!
