The Romans were here and left their mark. According to the Nibelungenlied, the knight Ruediger von Bechelaren had his family castle here in the early Middle Ages. That is why there is a Nibelungen monument here, but I didn't like it very much. The Welserturm directly on the Danube reminds of the Middle Ages. A famous son of the city is the painter Oskar Kokoschka, who was born here.
Pöchlarn with the parish church Maria Himmelfahrt (Assumption of Mary). The originally gothic church was renovated in baroque style after a fire.
At the Danube we are greeted by John Nepomuk. He and the flood protection dam protect Pöchlarn from flooding.
