Perg

Perg, a small town with a long history situated 30 km (19 miles) east of Linz, was once owned by the mighty von Perg family, whose last member died in the 12th century, during the Third Crusade. Until the 19th century Perg was the largest centre of millstone production; it is also the home of Manner, the largest manufacturer of sweet wafers in the world. Worth seeing today are some attractive houses on Herrengasse, a 1683 Baroque pillory in the main square and St Jacob’s church (1416), which has retained its Gothic interior. In Perg’s environs, graves and numerous remains of the Hallstatt civilization have been unearthed. The Heimathaus at Stifterstrasse exhibits finds from that period. It also documents the production of millstones and has an interesting collection of 16th—17thcentury ceramics, decorated using a special local technique.
