Lustenau

A fairly large town, Lustenau lies 5 km (3 miles) north of the mouth of the Rhine as it joins Bodensee, on the border with Switzerland. It is famous for its beautiful embroidery and lace-making, popular throughout Austria. It was at Lustenau that the Romans under the leadership of Emperor Constantine II defeated the Alemanni tribes who had risen up against the empire. The earliest historic records date from 887, when the settlement belonged to the Carolingians. Until 1806, it was a free territory within the empire. In 1814, after the Congress of Vienna, Lustenau came under Austrian rule. During the 19th century, the town developed into one of Austria’s most important centres for the textile industry, known primarily for its linen products. One of the most interesting sights in Lustenau is the Stickereimuseum (Embroidery Museum) at 0 Pontenstrasse, which exhibits both early hand-made and modern machine-made embroidery, and some early embroidery machines. Also worth visiting is the Rhine Museum at Hochsterstrasse.
