Charming little town rich in history ...

The ancient town of Freistadt has always been of major importance due to its convenient location on two significant trade routes in immediate vicinity to the Bohemian border. In 1220 the Babenberger Dynasty founded a fortification and trade center named "Frienstat" (Town of Liberty).
