Information on the region

Austria's most beautiful baroque town!

Located in the region of Oberösterreich (Upper Austria), in the Innviertel area close to the border with Bavaria, the Baroque town of Schärding is a truly extraordinary place. Its architecture is a mix of many styles and periods, the highlight probably being the Baroque “Silberzeile” row of houses, an astonishing ensemble of Baroque buildings. Rich market traders used to live there, lending its name to the place because they had pockets full of silver. The late-medieval colors of the old gates, the narrow and mysterious side streets – all this makes Schärding such a very special place indeed.

Many cyclists flock to Schärding all year round – the baroque town is a perfect starting point for cycling trips along the Danube, Inn and Tauern trails. The old Roman trail is another exciting way to discover this picturesque place, and many cycling trails are especially family-friendly. There is a wide range of possible sporting activities, making Schärding a great place to dwell for tennis aficionados, golfers and those of you who are into water sports. And why not take a boat ride between Schärding and the three-river town of Passau 15 km north of Schärding, or enjoy romantic walks on the beautiful esplanade along the River Inn.
